Is it just me or as soon as you hit a certain age it becomes engrained in your head that the next step towards being full adult (or at least being considered one) is purchasing a home. Now… I know this is not a requirement for being an adult, nor should it be one as we all take our own paths in life and we all have different goals and outlooks for where we should be at a certain age in our life, blah blah blah. But, good hell – I want a house.
Maybe it is the fact that I work in the design industry so part of my job is looking and creating beautiful spaces every day, or maybe this is the gay man’s version of baby fever that every mid-twenties woman gets as they start seeing their friends with babies. Who knows. But regardless, loft living has been on my mind and it is really tempting me to make a real estate move, even if it did mean eating ramen for the next 20 years to pay off my loans.
Living in a big city means insane real estate prices for the most part. BUT it also means there are a lot of untouched neighborhoods that are quickly gentrifying and turning over… which means, I could maybe one day afford a place in these “soon to be very desirable neighborhoods”. Either that or these creative real estate agents and city planners are doing a hell of a job at false advertising and making me want a total piece of garbage place to call home. So, please indulge me for a moment with these stunning “soon to be home” places.
Steel windows and doors will always have my heart, and paired with white floors you seriously can’t go wrong in this space. Now I just need a large freezer to store my pizza’s and we are good to go.
This is me – sitting in my hammock pretending that I want to go out on a Friday night when in fact I am completely satisfied because I am SITTING IN A HAMMOCK IN MY LIVING ROOM.
Two stories?! Sure why not.
Not sure if raising a family is a good idea in your DTLA loft or not, but this kid looks like he is living his best life swinging from the ceiling while those massive windows pour light onto his perfect dewey little complexion.
Gah…. so much potential in this space. Although I am 99.9% positive this little piece of paradise probably costs $82.89347 dollars for about 500 sq feet as it looks like it is in NY.
Excuse me while I collect another Eames Eiffel chair to go around my TWO farmhouse dining tables that I have stacked end to end because I have so much GD space up in this loft of mine.
I get it may not be for everyone as you don’t want your guests seeing you casually taking a bath in the middle of your living room, but – I am pretty ok with the public bath scenario if I could live in this space. I mean how easy does just popping out of the bath to walk 10 feet to your fridge to grab another snack sound and not even having to worry about it cus you can just mop it all up after.
So, is anyone else getting the urge for some lofty living or I am on my own here?
