Bohemian Living Spaces

20120823-182722.jpg

 

Ever wonder what it’s like to live in an artists loft? Or a warehouse space? Have questions about how to find, build, or create an unconventional living and work space? Maybe you’re just seeking inspiration for your own set up.

 

Well, this is for you.

 

This series is for the folks that appreciate the unusual homes, lofts, live, and work spaces. Most of the spaces features here are live/ work environments for artists, musicians, producers, and all the other types of folks who make up the bohemian (and almost bohemian) community.

 

My goal with this series is three part:

1. to inspire folks to create their own unconventional living space

2. to help answer questions on how to find and build up an unusual living/ work space

3. to offer a place for artists to share what they do while sharing the places they do it in

 

Future posts will include features of unusual living spaces ranging from a loft, warehouse, industrial cottage, French castle, nightclub, grain silo, VFW hall, and more.

 

Lasly, if you know anyone who has a unique or just damn interesting living situation and would like to be featured, please get in touch! If anonymity is needed or preferred, that’s no problem. There are a lot of folks out there looking for inspiration on unconventional living locations. Let’s collaborate. Show off your place and show us what you do.

  • LOVE IT!! I think this is going to be huge!! I can’t wait until we have another bohemian space that we can share. Soon enough. Until then I will live vicariously through all your features. Can’t wait to see what’s to come.

    Once this is up and running….thoughts on teaming up and I can be the DIY-er, and you can be the bohemian space-er!

    Think about it.

    Great job Bun!

    You should check out Reddit – know there is a subreddit for this very thing (I know becuase I uploaded one of your posts there awhile back). I wish I could simply provide the link, sorry.

    BTW – where is that space in the picture above. It is gorgeous!

    I hope you guys are happy, healthy and eating up every f’ing moment of your trip!

    Love it, this is going to be great. At the moment some of the coolest (but renovated/kind of new) living spaces I’ve seen are on http://freshome.com/

    Oooh i am going to love this series. My husband dreams of a room decorated wall to wall with books in every knook and cranny.
    Stacks of books as tables. Books on the floor stacked to waist high. Books on the wall. He’s book crazy which is kind of bad for our travel lifestyle as he’s still fighting the digital version of books over physcial. We leave a trail of books in our wake whenever we move on. LOL.

    Looking forward to seeing the different spaces. I’ve always lived in an apartment or a house. I’m working in a garage now though and spending 12 -15 hours here a day. People walk by (of course I leave it open every day) and go, ‘wow – your garage is an office!!’

    I literally drove around for a few hours today looking at available ware houses. I was looking into the legalities on living in them and ran across your post. Thanks for the extra inspiration. :) I’ll let ya know if I’m up for sharing when something happens.

    Man, this will be cool. The more…reproducible…the living set ups / methods / situations, the better. There’s not a lot of warehouse spaces in non-industrial towns. :-(

    love it!! hope you feature treehouses. Its my ultimate dream home and want to turn it into a.. resort or maybe just a tea house/hub for creative folks and workshop space!

    So we got it! 1,800 square feet of space! We passed the fire Marshall inspection yesterday and are all set to move in. :)
