Loft Living!

I just love to see spaces used in quirky and unusual ways!  This gorgeous house in the latest British Homes & Gardens magazine really appeals!

I love the drama of the high ceilings which is accentuated by the black cabinetry with the full height ladder...

The room below almost looks like it belongs in a different house - quite sophisticated!

One of my favourite features is the large scale steel doors and windows - incredibly bold and just plain gorgeous!

It just seems like every bit of space has been used to it's best advantage and to me that is the very definition of great design! 

Hope you are all having a great start to the week.  We are throwing ourselves back into things after a fabulous few days in Sydney for the Hillsong Colour Conference where we spent an amazing 3 days with 10 thousand other women - how empowering is that!
