my scandinavian home: A lovely relaxed, family loft in Oakland

A lovely relaxed, family loft in Oakland

Friday, 29 April 2016

Hello! The sun's shining and it's almost the weekend - what's not to love?! It's going to be an extra special one here too as we've got VIP guests - my sister and unbelievably cute four month old niece! Before I head off to join them I'd like to share this wonderfully relaxed and charming loft in Oakland, California. Captured by Ellie Koleen, the home belongs to graphic designer and illustrator Jess Levitz, husband Josh, baby boy Izzie and their dog Jack. The family have furnished the space with an eclectic blend of their favourite things including a huge book collection, vintage and handmade items (note the bespoke raised bed), modern pieces and a whole load of plants. The result is an entirely unique and personal home drenched in sunlight. What a great home tour to celebrate the start of the weekend.

Photography: Ellie Koleen / @elliserochelle (shared with kind permission)/ Homeowner: Jess Levitz. Found via Design Sponge with thanks. 
Love, love, love this space, how about you? It helps that the pics are that bit more personal including Jess with her little baby boy and also Jack enjoying a little spot in the sun!

Items I know and love: Kitchen - rattan pouf, industrial style utility cart, I love this original dining table from the 1950's table (better hurry, there's only one!), rag rug, string folk lights. Sitting room: Chaise longue from IKEA. Bedroom: the yellow art on canvas is by Jess, fairy lights. Izzie's corner: cotton & ball string lights, this little bear blanket / rug is similar to the one draped over the side of the cot.

You can read / check out more pics of this lovely home here.

I absolutely love a loft, don't you? Here are some others I've featured in the passed, in case you missed them - thoughtful no?!  A truly inspiring Parisien loft, 'The Witness' in New York and an artist's home in a former factory. Do you have a favourite?

Have a wonderful couple of days and see you Monday!

PS This weekend I'm holding such an exciting give-away - in fact I'd love to keep the prize for my own home,....stop by if you have the time and join in the fun, I assure you, you'll be as excited as I am!
