Your little sneak peeks are awesome - love everything you are doing with the loft. This West Elm island is great!

The kitchen island (and everything) looks great! Your place is really coming together. So fresh and unique. Question that you might know the answer to... for a long time I've wanted to add some chalkboard paint to my kitchen, but I'm afraid it will be difficult to paint over in the future. Do you happen to know if it is the same as painting over any other paint?

Great shots...love all those images! Can't wait to see the final product as your place progresses... :)
My fiance and I are torn between the loft-style and the garden-style apartments at park la brea... but you're tipping the scale!

l-o-v-e the island!!

....and any fern will always remind me of Kate Hudson in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days: "Our love fern! You let it die! Are you going to let us die?" ... oh good stuff. Hah pretty pics too!

jaclyn @ thelateafternoon said...

love how your kitchen is coming along! the island and wall are amazing. a chalkboard wall is a number one on my list for when i have a place i can actually paint!

Karlie -- Inspire Me said...

Oh man, you have a chalkboard wall!!! I am completely jealous. I can't wait until I can have one too. Your place is looking lovely.

Looks gorgeous thus far. Hopefully you two enjoyed a bottle of champagne (or other adult celebrating beverage) when you moved in. Making progress this quickly is quite the feat... and I have to admit that I wish the little city I live in had lofts like this one! Would make finding a place that much easier!
