Artists' live work studios just look...well...more creative. Maybe it's the attention to aesthetics or the unconventional approach to space, but these homes usually compel a sense of awe and a-ha for those who enter.
Artist Vik Muniz's home in Brooklyn is a textbook example. The loft (pictured at the top of the post) is a tale of opposites: part lab, part comfortable home. Nonetheless, creature comforts abound, such as this cozy bedroom, decorated tastefully with collectibles:
The dining area is clean, open and ready to entertain. Notice the pendant lighting over the table. For a bright and easy look in the kitchen or dining room, nothing beats decorating with island pendant lights.
A wall of books or a comfortable couch to sink into? What family could live without them?
Whether it's an architect's lamp for bedside lighting or a brushed steel ceiling fan, each room in Muniz's home strikes that delicate balance between functional work space and homey living space.

Living the loft dream does have a certain appeal. A 15 second commute from bedroom to office? Check. Creative space? Check. With an open floor plan and an open mind, you can get the artist/designer look with modern hanging light fixtures, simple but stylish mid-century furniture, and a few well-place pieces of art along the walls.
How about you? Do you live in a live/work space? We'd love to see photos!
