At Home With Jayme Ditto

At Home With Jayme DittoWe are happy to welcome Jayme Ditto to the blog today to share her gorgeous loft with us!

I love this bench seatingColorful dishesSmall details"We live in a split-level loft in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. We are both graphic designers and lovers of all things handmade & mod.  We've really tried our hardest to make it OUR space. Not too feminine, not too masculine. Where we have pieces that are more 'Mitch' we add something that is 'Jayme' and vice versa. We were actually looking around our place the other day and realizing that almost every 'space' in our loft has something handmade, a DIY, or has been recycled in some way. We are kind of DIY fiends."

Bright detailsLove this outdoor seating used inside"Mitchell and I are fairly newlyweds. We moved into this space together right before our wedding this past December. Before the wedding it was total chaos. We did a full on DIY wedding, and this loft served as our studio. After we cleaned up our mess, it has truly blossomed into a home we have put our hearts and souls into. We both love working with our hands and come from families where building, making and creating are essential to making us tick. Although it's only been 7 months, we have really made the place OURS."

Love the colorful detailsAdorable crate storage"We have divided our loft into several nooks. First we have a craft/art supply area, mostly mine, that has a desk that M and I made from two yellow saw horse legs and a piece of semi-opaque glass from IKEA. Since that area of the loft is so dark, M found an IKEA hack and made a light with a bathroom mirror and some basic lamp wiring parts. We also added a pendant lamp from West Elm that is just funky enough to fit the space. On the walls I've collected prints, pennants, textiles, vintage farm equipment and photos to decorate with. I am kind of in love with the small copper nails I found at a hardware store and have used those to hang everything on this wall above my desk. They just add that little extra something. Some of the prints are a little off-kilter, but I kind of like them that way. That desk is usually pretty chaotic when I have my passion projects going on. 

Our other little nooks, like my Mexi Garden wall, is mostly assembled of little paintings I made to help inspire my plants to grow and vintage finds, like our piggies and watering spritzer. The paper flowers are left over from my bachelorette party, and I couldn't let them go to waste. They are so sweet. The retro music area upstairs belongs to Mitchell. We found those yellow lawn chairs on Craigslist for $40. They were in pretty good shape. I had to put a dash of my heritage in that area though, so in comes the serape! The clock was a gift from a friend, and the prints were a gift from my dad and are from Hatch Show Print."

Love every single detailSneakersSuch a cool board"We have so much natural light coming through our large windows, and that in itself is inspiring. It's perfect on sunny days for photographing fun things, or sitting and sketching by the windows on rainy days. Sometimes though, we just close the blinds, pretend we live in a concrete cave and build blanket forts.

Mitchell and I both have desk jobs, so when we come home we like to either roll up sleeves and work on our own passion projects or Y&B projects (or just we loaf and watch Parks & Rec). With the hours we work at our day jobs, being at home is such a privilege. We've really tried to make it playful and cozy, workable and livable."Jayme DittoAt Home With Jayme Ditto via A Beautiful MessThanks for sharing your home with us, Jayme!

  • This space looks like they really put love into every nook and cranny! I really like the yellow lawn chairs and how they add a pop of color to the space. The sneakers on the couches was really adorable too. Congratulations! (7 months in are still newlyweds!lol!)

  • Amazing! Love all the unique touches, such as the bunny knobs and the skateboard. It’s those kind of small things that truly make a home, more than any sofa or table.

  • I love all the little nooks and cupboards. There’s so much visual interest and you can really tell they spent a lot of time piecing it together.

  • What a loooooovely house! I’m especially fond of the crates used as shelving! I’ve always wanted to do just that, but I’m renting right now and can’t put holes in the wall, sigh.

    I also love that yellow glider, ahhhh!

  • There’s a whole paragraph about her desk and the pictures above it, but no actual picture of it! ):
    Other than that, I really like the vibe going on, especially with the not too masculine/not too feminine– it’s a look that I’m trying to go for in my new space!

  • What a fun loft! I have to say that although I love the at home with…. series, it kinda drives me bonkers that most of the time I don’t get to see an overall view of the space, just extreme close ups of bits and pieces. I’d love to see how all the bits and pieces fit together in the grand scheme of things.

  • I totally love it! So meany pretty details! I could never create such an amazing interior! xx
