Rustic Modern Kitchen

Tyler added a bright paint stripe on the brick wall so that the exposed brick doesn't feel too overwhelming. The rustic mirror is from Portland Architectural Salvage, and Tyler chose a marble subway tile from Home Depot for the backsplash.

Salvaged Materials

Every part of the loft was used efficiently, even the exposed brick wall in the kitchen for storing pots and pans. The concrete countertop adds a modern edge to the breakfast bar.

Eclectic Dining Room Design

Tyler wanted a statement piece for the light fixture above the dining table. She chose this tall, vintage pendant because of its scale and slightly gothic style that works with the eclectic design of the loft.

One-of-a-Kind Office Space

To create this eclectic desk, Tyler sourced salvaged architectural corbels and chains from a local ferry and had the pine top custom-built. An antique ladder doubles as a bookcase and accents the vertical space of the loft.
