Hey Hey and HAPPY FALL!!!
Last week a friend and I went on a “Loft Walk” which is a walking tour of a few lofts in downtown Charleston. Charleston, by comparison is a tiny city and only 50,000 people. We love it here! My friend is actually house shopping, I was just there to see some PRETTY and I was not disappointed.
I won’t go into detail on every picture so this will sort of just be a picture fest. Only 1 of these lofts we actually occupied and you will definitely be able to tell which one. I just snapped a few pictures in each loft of the things I found interesting or beautiful.
Below is actually a kitchen in an older building. The building has I believe three apartments and this was one of them. I snapped this picture because I loved the black and white (of course!) The entire kitchen was painted black with white cabinetry. It was a small space so pretty hard to capture the whole thing but it made me seriously consider painting my kitchen black one day soon.
Here are the pictures of the only occupied loft. There are several other lofts and a penthouse also being renovated in this building. I LOVED all of the light fixtures and fans, plus the sliding doors on the office and kitchen. You can also see in a few of the pictures that they have some exposed brick and beams, which I think is gorgeous! They also quietly added some exposed wood pieces here and there which really gives this new construction loft some old charm.
Here’s the next one in the same building and my favorite FINISHED loft of the whole tour. I may have stepped into that shower and pretended to wash by hair and then was caught by one of the architects. Ha! Ain’t no shame in my game!
Windows line the entire right side of this loft because it faces the river. AMAZING views! No window treatments needed 😉
Here is a 1920’s building (known as the Charmco building) for sale across the street from Appalachian Power Park. It needs major repairs/renovation but I can see how fabulous it could be. It used to house a flour mill. You could watch every game from an upstairs window!
Hope you enjoyed my little tour! Have a great day!!
