This one is my very favorite I think - I love how airy it all looks.
Another very airy looking loft - although the metal would make it harder to replicate.
And yes, this is definitely a kids loft, but they had really good instructions on how to build it, and it can totally be modified to be more grown up. I was thinking the railing would have to be taken away, but then I realized how likely I am to fall out of bed. Railing = Necessity.
As I hate the typical 4x4 post look of most lofts (too college dorm like), my new plan is to come up with a way to disguise them. Boyfriend talked me out of buying some columns on Craigslist a couple of weeks ago, and in the process told how they used to make fake columns out of cardboard concrete forms back when he was working as a theater tech guy. My thought is to cut a slit down one side and wrap it around the post, and then patch it back up and maybe do some kind of faux finish on it. Any other ideas?
