This book-filled loft designed by interior design company Oh Beauty offers just 900 square feet of living space, located in Los Angeles, California. The loft is owned by the designer and her husband, filled with chic DIY details and flea market finds intermingled with designer furnishings and accessories. The homeowners have created a warm atmosphere in their humble abode, which features open plan living, exposed brick walls, stainless steel and concrete flooring.

The loft is filled with fresh greenery throughout, adding nature into an urban environment. These plants help to not only soften the space, they also cleanse the air and help with noise control. The plants helps these homeowners to feel connected with nature, bringing the outdoors in. Living in LA has inspired the design of this home, as living in the downtown area, there is not a lot of green space to be found. Large windows helps illuminate this small living space with natural light, adding to its open and airy feel.

Living the heart of a busy urban environment had an affect on the homeowner’s selection of interior decor. The LA culture contributed to the designer’s love for white. She feels that with the chaotic environment that surrounds her, white walls, fabrics and finishes helps to create a sense of tranquility. Overall, this home has a cozy and warm aesthetic, thanks to the exposed brick, use of textures and the string lights that adds a touch of whimsy.
