Loft Bedroom and Master Ensuite Design

Not sure if you remember, but my favourite feature of our summer home is the loft. It's the first thing to draw your attention to when you set foot inside. Growing up, I did my fair share of battlefield reenactments with my cousins in the loft of my Grandma's house. It was our hideaway place where we did all the fun things kids would do at the time, away from adults' prying eyes. To date, I still get the private and cocooned feeling when I think of a loft. 

Our loft is a good-sized space at 200 square feet, with a comfortable 7-foot vaulted ceiling and a centred window letting in abundant light. It would be a pity to use as a storage room, as most people would probably do. 

My plan for the loft is ambitious. I am seeing a platform bed with storage against one side of the angled walls, a MCM desk centred around the window, flanked by two bookcases/shelving units for additional storage. I threw in a rocking chair for the hygge factor and a Moroccan pouf for extra comfort. The design board looks like this:

The loft is going to be a multipurpose room, allowing us to host more guests at the same time, and using it as a library/office when we have to catch up on work. I already called dibs on this space.

Desk, chair, rocking chair and pillows: Structube. 
Moroccan pouf: West Elm.
Platform bed, bookcase: Ikea
Ceiling light: Crystorama. 
Art: Minted and Society6. 

Now onto the master bedroom ensuite. It's so dysfunctional and hideous now that I couldn't even bring myself to take a picture. It has a pedestal sink and a medicine cabinet - for a house so well built with many cool features, our builder definitely fell short on the master ensuite. Everything in it pretty much has to go. My plan again is to create a quiet, relaxing and functional bathroom, easy to clean and maintain as well. 

Mirror with shelf, vanity light, towel warmer: Wayfair. 
Vanity with sink, laundry basket: Ikea.
Shower curtain: Target. 
Wall hooks: Normann Copenhagen. 
Art: Minted. 

So what do you think of these two design boards?
