As a textile and design junkie with a knack for repurposing old furniture and a passion for sharing resources and living communally, this loft seemed the perfect space to call home. In the nearly five years I’ve been living here, this space has allowed me to play host to many amazing, interesting, loving and generous people from around the world. Because of its size and layout it has granted me many opportunities to host creative and community events. I like to cook, love to eat and love love love a great dinner party or an all day marathon Sunday brunch (which have become quite popular around here). Opening my loft to be shared with travelers who become friends has been the most positively life altering decision I’ve ever made. With each ephemeral shared experience my faith in the positive power of living in/ with community is exponentially affirmed. As characters in a great novel, each guest who stays seems to unfold a little more of the story. I cannot ask for a better life.
