One of my big dreams has always been to have a huge live/work art space to make big pieces of crazy art, host funky performance and art events, AND cook up my Sunday morning pancakes. Ideally, it would also be a space that had a lovely little garden either in the backyard, or on top of the roof. I know that’s not usually how it works- you either get the loft, or get the house with the backyard. But when it’s a dream, it could be anything… Here are a few pics of cool-looking spaces I could envision myself in:
This one is okay, but I don’t love the cement floors. Would have to work on that.. Exposed brick is always a nice look, though. Plus a big open space.
Hardwood floors is more my style, especially old-looking hardwood floors like this one. Anything somewhat raw looking is good.
LOVE this space. Nice light, although the pillars could get in the way for some events..
I could certainly see myself living here, except that it costs a freaking $1,050,000. Artist loft converted to rich person condo :(.
Not sure about living in this one, but it sure looks cool! Plus it’s probably more in my price range…
Another fancy pants one, purchased at $1,000,000. Ugh, why do all the rich people get the good artist lofts? It’s not fair.
LOVE. I actually just applied for an artist residency at this one: (The Bemis Center). That would be a dream come true. Hope I get it. Artist residencies will at least offer the space until I can figure out how to afford one of my own…… someday… !
