As I've mentioned before, our soon-to-be home has no dividing walls.  When Lee and I lived there as a newly married couple, this wasn't much of a problem.  But now with a toddler who naps in the middle of the day and goes to sleep by 7PM?  We need walls in that place ASAP.

A traditional wall, though, would completely take away the openness of our loft.  So we've talked a lot about how we can keep that loft-y feel while adding privacy for daytime napping and late-night conversations.  Some sort of translucent movable wall seems to be the perfect fit.   

Because parts of our loft have over 14-foot ceilings, I don't think we'd be able to do floor-to-ceiling movable walls.  The original building, which was built around 1906, was only five stories tall, but when they converted it to lofts, the roof was taken off and the ceiling was pushed up another three feet.  Luckily, though, there are still a few concrete pillars with support beams that might just work for movable walls.

We are still in the early stages of planning and will meet with someone while we are home a few weeks from now who can hopefully make our loft into a functional living space for our little family. 


  1. Very cool look. What a great way to divide up your space and make it more private for Alice. It will be another wonderful adventure. xo

  2. Those would look so great with all the exposed brick and concrete in your place! Excited to see what you two figure out!

  3. Those can be awesome, and there's so many options at many price points too. Check out Rimadesio... pricey but beautiful. Of course you can also do something custom... so exciting!

  4. I am so excited for you guys! The place looks absolutely beautiful. I love the clean lines and modern simplicity. It's going to be so gorgeous. Congratulations!
