House Tour | Eclectic Loft |

Tuesday, August 13, 2013












Here is another great house tour from Design*Sponge Sneak Peek files. This eclectic loft is located in Philly (holla erin). There is a wannabe collector in me somewhere that could spend days on end (and dollars on end) scouring the worlds flea markets for lost treasures to bring to home. However, for me, collecting and clutter are synonymous, so I am always mesmerized when I find a home that is filled with lovely collections that are so beautifully displayed and still manages to feel so clean and bright - much like this one. I absolutely love the wall display of collars and I am always a fan of mix and match chairs at the dining table. In fact there are so many wonderful pieces in this home. I am sure it would be a fun place to visit and hear all the stories behind their collections.

Is there anything that you collect? I am working on a collection of vintage portraits myself so I am feeling pangs of jealousy for the one they have on their desk (as well as that horse head on the bookshelf).

  1. you are so right that this collector has made it still minimal and bright, even though there are so many treasures. i would love to see you vintage portrait collection so far! i am always collecting something - like insects - but lately we've been collecting old radios. we have a beautiful wooden tube radio that still sounds so warm and lovely, and we recently added a transistor radio to our collection, one with a nice leather case.

  2. This space is amazing, the mixture of different items and styles is just right. It definitely looks like a collectors home. Besides chairs and the Rosenthal Bunte Blatter china I don't really collect certain things. Ok, maybe vintage boots, I only have 5 or 6 pairs so far..xo

  3. I have these two conflicting spaces in my brain: one that wants rural waterside living in lakeside or coastal cottage (there's a pin board for you!) and another that wants urban walkable living in a thriving metropolis. If I had that, I'd dearly love to live in a loft. This one is stunning. It's warm AND industrial and I love the combination.

    I used to collect pitchers, but I'm kind of off collecting in my urge to clear, clear, clear. I find that photography has helped with that a great deal. Pictures of things instead of things.

  4. The wall display of collars is the first thing that I noticed. And then there are the floors, the colurful rug, the mix of chairs and that weathered sliding door.

  5. Whattup Philly!! Haha, I love it. One day I will have one of those vintage barn-style sliding doors in my house somewhere. They're so incredible. Love the all white kitchen and those gold pendant lights SO MUCH. Yeah, Philly is a big city and all, but I'm totally going to track this apartment down. Here's something random!! The photographer, Courtney Apple? I took acting classes as a kid with her at a theater in town! Hahah, Philly is such a small world sometimes. xo

  7. So a great space! I used to collect a lot of things but my husband said I wasn't allowed to collect too many things anymore. I would love to add to my vintage fan collection and am always looking for art new or old. :)

  8. Wow! What a lovely space. Love the set of three golden bell lights. I used to live in Philly too (GO OWLS Erin!).

  9. My first thought: OH! Look at all that lovely clutter! (It also made me miss all my clutter that is now safely packed away in boxes ready for their journey across the sea). I particularly loved the light-filled open plan layout and the fact that the kitchen is tucked away into a nook but is still "part" of the rest of the room. I don't have a collection as such but I buy anything with hearts on (or stars).

  10. I could never in a bajillion years cull together a collection like that (you know, making it all look like it belongs together) but I can admire from afar. Sigh.
