Residents: Lloyd and Kelli Hawk; their cat, Lady Bug, and their dog, Orso. Lloyd is CEO of Friendship Baptist LLC; Kelli owns Bella Espaces (which means Beautiful Spaces), a decorating and home decor company.
Location: Atlanta's Castleberry Hill neighborhood. The home was on the 2015 Castleberry Hill Loft Tour.
Size: 2,100 square feet, one bedroom, one bath
Year built/bought: 1929/2002 (converted to lofts in 1996)
Architectural style: Industrial loft
Favorite architectural elements: Exposed brick and trolley system used when the building was a meatpacking factory. "He wanted an authentic loft with the exposed duct and piping," she said.
Interior design style: Eclectic mix of industrial meets French farmhouse.
Favorite interior design element: She used a set of wooden panels along with rugs, lighting and furniture groupings to divide the living and bedroom spaces. She bought the panels at Westside Market. "They are gorgeous. That was a lucky, lucky find," she said. "My friend and I popped in. I saw them and was like, 'Oh my gosh, I have to have them.'"
Decor tip: In homes with open floor plans, sometimes people spread out the furniture too far. Instead, Kelli suggests bringing furniture together in groupings to give some distinction between spaces. "There were a lot of moving things around to get it just right," she said. "Eventually, I figured it out."
