i love the idea of a loft in my home. it would be used for reading and relaxing and listening to music. It would be the only acceptable living space to be completely surrounded with windows. Windows are delightful in moderation and on the second (and subsequent) stories of a house, but otherwise i fear people coming in through them or even just staring at me through them. One of those odd things i suppose. I also would not want french doors in my bedroom. Seems so unsafe!
