Tall and open, lofts work most efficiently when one thinks vertically. A second-story ledge makes use of the tall ceilings by adding a small open library up top. Below, the floor drawers flanking the room make the most use of space.
drooling over the library loft idea. love it! you get the best views of the area around you (granted its got some trees!) and some really good lighting. and its close to the living room so you could grab a book and go plop on the sofa!
