Last weekend I spoke to a group of women at our church about hospitality, recipes and my life as a food editor. I had so much fun with the women, and loved that it was a small group so we could talk casually. A few of the ladies mentioned that I should put up photos of our apartment, and so today I’m doing just that! I don’t know what took me so long, or why I never thought to put something up sooner.

When Joe and I first moved, we were thrilled to find such a modern, fun space to call home. It’s a loft-style apartment (read: no bedroom door or rooms of any sort) and not very big, but we figured there is never going to be a time in life when we can live in a space like this, so we jumped at the opportunity. We have big doors/windows on the east side of our apartment. The first photo is what you see when your back is up against the doors.. There is a decent sized kitchen, island with bar stools where we eat almost all our meals, and our living room.

These are our white couches. I love the look of my white couches and how versatile they are when decorating (we change the pillows during the summer to something more seasonal) but I bought my couches when I was single, without a dog or husband. I’ve since found out that white couches are incredibly difficult to keep clean. Just something for me to keep in mind for next time, and a heads-up for any of you looking at buying white couches.

The view when you walk in the front door.

And another view of the kitchen. My mom recently had that canvas print made of one of our favorite wedding photos. I absolutely love it! You’ll also notice we have magazines everywhere in our house. As an editor, I have a tough time letting magazines get thrown away, especially food magazines that I might want to consult for inspiration later down the road. Anyone else have the same issue?

So that’s ends the tour de Hofmeyer house! The lighting is terrible in our bedroom and bathroom, so I didn’t snap any photos. Rest assured, we have a bathroom, bedroom and laundry room/walk-in closet. Hope you enjoyed getting a peak into where we live.

Happy Friday, friends!
Madison

    I’m a magazine editor, too, and feel exactly the same way… which means a lot of magazines in not a lot of apartment!

    Beautiful! I absolutely adore the black and white photo of you and Joe – where did you have that printed? Is it a canvas? I would love to get one of Shaun and me! :)

    I love your home! It’s so simple and elegant at the same time… love the loft because you’re right – this is the one time in your life you will want to live in something like this! It’s great!

  • Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray

    Just so you know…you live in a PALACE. Seriously, can I come stow away??

    So fun to get a tour — and your home is beautiful! Love the loft layout and the classy style.

    LOVE it! Total house envy. This year I moved into my then fiance’s now husband’s townhouse which just hasn’t yet felt like home to me. He has no desire to redecorate and its just not my style (or my level of neatness!) haha…needs a lot of work. Hoping we either get to the cleaning up/redecorating soon, or find a new home. Will you come decorate for us?!

  • Marisa

    You have a beautiful home! Love it!

  • Shica

    Your place is really something to envy! I love the openness of it all!!

    I love seeing other people’s houses. I’m also a lover of white couches, but I know there’s no way I could keep them clean with our two mud-loving pups. They look so beautiful, though!

    Love this, and that photo is wonderful!

  • Gabby Bladdick

    This is beautiful, Madison! Gives me so much inspiration while house hunting. :) I love the loft feel of it, but your living room has so much of a country/farm inspiration with the white couches and neutral colors. Thanks for sharing!!

    Oh my goodness, Madison – it is so cute! I absolutely love what you’ve done with your loft space!

    It’s beautiful! wow! I love it!

    I also have too many food mags laying around. I saw a huge silver floor bowl at Pottery Barn a few weeks ago. I might look into it as a stylish storage solution for magazines!

    I’m in love with your modern loft!! You have made it look so warm and cozy too :)

    Gorgeous apartment! Just as a matter of curiosity… where do you shoot your photos for your recipes? Do you do that at home or at work?
