A variety of antique pieces pair with new furnishings and accessories to give Timothy Weber’s downtown loft a warm and modern feeling.

Timothy Weber had $300 in his pocket when he moved into Springfield’s Old Monterey Apartments nearly 10 years ago. Weber, who is now a 30-year-old stylist at ViVo Modern Hair Design, moved here with two friends and attended Missouri College of Cosmetology. Weber went on to have different roommates at a few residences, but he says he was usually the decorator of the bunch. In June 2010, Weber moved into  a 1,000-square-foot loft in downtown Springfield, where he was finally able to decorate everything the way he wanted.

“I like old stuff—I don’t like modern stuff, but I do like the clean and modern feeling,” Weber says. Much of this décor in Weber’s loft came from his family. There’s a window that came from an old farmhouse and a decanter that was his grandma’s. There’s even framed artwork that was created by his niece, Ellyse Edwards.

But the space is also filled with some expensive pieces, including a handmade dining room table and extravagant chandeliers. Weber says he’s able to acquire such pieces through trade for hair services. “A lot of people, when they see someone my age with the things that I have, think that I came from money,” Weber says. “This isn’t true.” Weber credits his dad and grandparents for his accomplishments. “My family has always taught me that it’s about working hard and making your dreams come true, no matter what they are,” Weber says.
