This months photo shoot for Salt Magazine took place in perhaps one of the coolest venues in Wilmington. I am fortunate to experience many wonderful spaces, but the loft that Donn Lashley shares with his children, Kade and Oonah, is really special. Originally owned by the late actor Dennis Hopper and part of the old Masonic Temple building, Lashley has taken an incredible loft space and restored it to fit his lifestyle and that of his children. From climbing walls, acrobatic silks and swings, to the motorcycle, bicycle and music instrument filled basement, it is truly a kid and adult kid friendly environment. I just wanted to hang around!  Donn has traveled the world on mountaineering endeavors and Kade has been fortunate to tag along on many other adventures. The home they share with Oonah is just an extension of this adventurous, relaxed, live in the moment outlook on life. At least thats my take on things. If you haven’t yet, grab a copy of Salt and read the article written by Bill Irvine, Salt’s Senior Editor. If you’d like to see this incredible space, you will have the opportunity to do so during the Back Door Kitchen Tour on October 14. Meanwhile, enjoy the following selects from the days photo shoot.
