The Baird family

Ten years ago very few lived downtown in an urban setting but couples are now flocking to downtown Toledo for loft living. Tom and Laura Baird with their daughter Kayleigh and dog Tasha  sold their Ottawa Hills home and decided to give it a try. Their beautiful loft is eclectic and spacious taking in all of the views along the Maumee River.

The loft is open and each area fits fashionably together. The Baird’s have used black and white as their base and added unique touches – a zebra throw rug, large urns filled with flowers and art including photos that show downtown before redevelopment began.

The high ceilings demand larger accessories and the pendant lighting adds the finishing touch in the kitchen and dining area. While there is no yard to mow or flowers to plant, the compact outdoor terrace is delightfully decorated in primary colors. It is the best seat in the city watching the crowds making their way to Hensville or the skyline in the morning and evening. Loft living; urban life at its best!
