|The Loft as seen from the Living Room|
|Maybe it's just me, but I might have cleaned off the desk a bit and closed the drawers before shooting the listing photos. But you know me, I'm obsessive like that.|
To the Hubs and I, a messy office space on the way up to the Master Bedroom felt like anything but the calm and relaxing area we were hoping for. Since we already planned to place our desk in the Guest Bedroom, we thought that this would be much better suited for us as a quiet reading area (we're not trying to be pretentious by having a "reading nook," as we both do quite a bit of reading and would love a private oasis to do so - but yes, you'd be justified to make fun of us). On inspection day, the room looked like this:
|Diggin' that rock bed in the ledge? I know I am.|
And now it looks like this:
The great wood paneled ceiling in this space inspired us to incorporate the Modern Lodge look:

These little cardboard friends were a Father's Day present to the Hubs this year. Whenever we searched the internet for Modern Lodge inspiration we would come across different modern twists on the traditional deer or moose head. Since you would never catch me alive with a dead animal head hanging from my wall (seriously, it's a dead animal people), I was more than happy to embrace this fun and quirky variation.
As much as we'll miss the rock beds and ergonomically designed office chairs that previously graced this space with their presence, we're excited about the new, comfortable modern feel.
