Well, I’m happy to announce I officially have the keys in hand to my new studio loft. I don’t move in until the weekend, but I stopped in before dinner the other night to soak in my home before the moving chaos begins. It’s…perfect. It’s much smaller than I remembered from my viewing and I’m perfectly fine with that. I must have been disoriented the first time I checked out the view because I don’t remember it being this fantastic. From my three windows I overlook a historic, urban neighborhood in the corner of downtown full of restaurants, bars and unique shops.
The few moments to myself also gave me time to picture a furniture arrangement and daydream of my future gallery wall for which I’ve been hoarding tons of artwork. I originally thought I had all concrete walls, but to my surprise, I have half and half. I also found out I have a medicine cabinet (yay, storage!), do not have a microwave, and have large enough window ledges to display houseplants and allow my cat, D’Artagnan, to hang out and enjoy the view, too.
Ready to step into my new place? It doesn’t have furniture yet, or anything, but will by next week. Oh, and don’t worry about taking off your shoes. I’m not that picky yet.

It’s “cold” now with all the industrial piping and concrete, but I have lots of ideas for warming the place up. What tips do you have for me? Share them in the comments below.
