Urban Loft In Seattle

This is an urban loft space in Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square neighborhood.

The color palette chosen for this small space is mostly whites, greens and blues. And then there are the gorgeous brick walls.

This loft was designed to highlight the openness of the space.

There is a place for everything: dining, sleeping, relaxing.

Outside are the sounds of the city. But inside is an oasis of calm and peace.

The decor is simple but not spare. The personality of the resident is apparent, yet there is no clutter.

A small kitchen is half hidden by a short wall, but still gives the illusion of openness seen throughout the loft. 

I wish they'd had a photo of the bathroom, but they did not.

I've always thought it would be fun to live in a city loft. With high ceilings, brick walls, wood floors, and lots of windows for plants.

I could live here, above the hustle and bustle of the urban streets outside, and be quite happy.

Would you like to live in a loft?

  1. The loft reminds me of one our daughter had in New York. We lived in Redmond and I miss Seattle; such a fun city. Thank you for the photos, XOXO

  2. Love this loft, I adore brick walls inside. It is so bright and white.

  3. Do let us know how your dog is going on Brenda. I do hope he has some relief from the pain.

  4. I thought it would be fun about 20 years ago, but now I am back to wanting a cottage on a tree lined street near shopping and groceries.

    1. My how time can change the desires of one's heart. I totally agree with you.

  5. I don't want to live in the heart of a city. But I could maybe live in this setting in a small, historic town, provided there was a little balcony for a few plants. I love the clean, uncluttered look of this place.

  6. I would miss having an outside space to garden in, and I prefer having separate rooms to sleep, etc. But this is very nice and I love the brick wall. I think I would have liked this a lot when I was a young single woman. Now being older and retired, I prefer my small one level patio house with space to garden. :)

  7. I could not live there. It is pretty, very neat and in good taste. Does anyone know what the green plant with the small leaves are on the table by the perfume bottles. I have seen them in magazines and am interested in getting one.

  8. A little too sterile for my taste, but I do like the spaciousness. Not a terribly budget-friendly group of furnishings, either. I would like to see more creativity and less $1,000. and up items from high end stores. But, that's just my preference.

    I have always imagined that it would be fun to furnish and live in a loft, too. The only thing that would be a major stumbling block for me would not being able to walk out the door onto green grass and have dirt to dig in. Indoor gardening just isn't the same.

    But, overall, an interesting little abode.

    BTW, how is Abi? I last remember her having a herniated disc in her neck and being in quite a bit of pain. I hope she is doing okay.

  9. love all of this! yes I could definitely live there.
    I however... do not like the snake lookalike on the coffee table! ewww!!!

  10. Beautiful but I'll pass. I have no desire live in downtown Seattle. We lasted 3 months before we had enough. The final straw was being cursed out by a woman who was relieving herself on the sidewalk. We moved to the burbs and my hubby commuted to downtown until he retired. He has tons of stories about things he witnessed.

  11. I think you would miss your outside space living somewhere like that, Brenda! Me, too - plus I would need some separation from the kitchen to bedroom. I hate cooking smells in the bedroom! I do love the tall ceilings, brick walls, big windows, wood floors - all that sunlight!
