My friend, Angela’s cottage has been featured on my Feature Friday last year and now I can’t wait to share the latest design delight that Angela has accomplished. She and her hubby bought an in-town Atlanta loft not too long ago and she has been busy making it pretty. Loft living is so fascinating to me and I love the industrial feel that that have. Angela has managed to make this one feel cozy and comfortable, even though it still has those features in place that lofts are known for: concrete floors, brick walls, industrial ceilings and more.
This one is a treasure and Angela uses it as an art studio and weekend getaway from her suburban Atlanta home. She’s a busy homeschooling mom of 3 and this is her little escape for some “me” time of painting.
Angela, Lori and I are partners on the Room Service Atlanta project (see the Room Service website for all the details) that I shared with you a few weeks ago and we met at Angela’s loft this week to get some final plans made for our room makeovers. It was the perfect spot for some brain storming with creative women.
A Mexican burrito lunch from Bell Street Burritos was the perfect break.
Keep in mind that I forgot my big camera, so these pics were taken with my new iphone, which I have only had about 3 mos. now. How did I live without my iphone? Do you have one?
So, this is coming in the front door. The floors are all concrete and I wish you could see all the texture in the place. It’s industrial, but with the soft goods in place, doesn’t feel cold at all. Angela is a thrifting queen and loves shopping frugally, but when she puts it all together, it’s dynamite.
Take a look at those huge drum light fixtures. One of her relatives made them and she had them covered in fabric and they really make the space. You can’t see how big they are in these pics, but they are just massive.
She painted the big Marilyn on the wall and it’s very graphic and right at home in the loft. That sofa is from the thriftstore and she painted it and had it recovered.
Planked walls and Angela’s colorful artwork fit right in as well. The bedroom is right behind the planked wall. It’s a small space, but every inch is well planned out.
A “B” for their last name.
The open kitchen is compact, but very cute. She painted that blue dining table.
Love the kitchen with quartz countertops.
Angela picked up this industrial light last year on our Screen Door shopping trip to Asheville, NC. She’s great at mixing things together.
This Flor runner is great in here with its graphic look and bold colors.
And there’s adorable Angela at the end of the hall. She’s such a sweetie!
Love this corner with the HUGE mirror that her contractor built a mega frame around. It bounces a lot of light around.
This chest with the collage of artwork above is so interesting too. Angela has such a great eye for design.
This chevron barn door goes into the bedroom.
The other side of the planked wall holds the bed with built in closets on either side.
Pretty bedding makes it cozy.
The small compact bathroom is just big enough.
And check out that pink industrial faucet. Isn’t that the cutest?
Love this big bold light fixture too, it’s right at home in this lofty space. Check out the ceilings too.
At the back of the space is Angela’s art studio, with lots of natural light pouring in.
She loves modern art and bold colors. I’m not an artist at all, so I’m in awe of how she can put brush to canvas and come up with some beautiful artwork.
An artist’s bevy of brushes.
Bold colors all over, so fun.
Angela has so much talent and is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.
Door knobs from Anthropologie.
We met up at the loft and had a meeting for our Room Service Atlanta project, fine tuning the details, choosing the bedding and paint colors. We’ll be finishing up this project at the end of October and I’ll of course, share all of that with you.

I just fell in love with Angela’s beautiful loft and knew y’all would enjoy seeing it too. I think loft living is so fascinating, how about you?
