I spent a LOT of money and time learning to paint, and then I decided not to move to a cultural center to work. I promise, I'm not stupid. Flyover country is great for creatives.
This is Offbeat Home's archive of artists posts.
In a post straight out of House Hunters International, we're touring a 6th floor walkup in Barcelona. This place has it all: hardwood, Eames furniture, a European balcony and — oh. 160 year-old curved brick ceilings.
We're not JUST looking at art here, kids — we're looking at lots of sexy art. Sexy art in a beautiful, light-filled space with eclectic furniture and two artists.
Offbeat Mama Managing Editor Stephanie gives us a guided tour of her carefully-crafted, kid-friendly apartment filled with thrifty finds. The family's got bright blue walls, loads of art, and a gigantic bean bag for one little dog.
Even if you only have a passing interest in Steampunk, Doktor A's studio construction will make you drool. From Edison-style light switches to custom cast iron radiators, the studio is startlingly authentic.
I've got a vintage vanity, bar cabinet and dining room table, lots of books, some art, and that's about it. What can I say? We only moved in 4 months ago, and we tend to get rid of everything we own when we move. But I take hipster photos, so you'll still enjoy my home tour. And there are at least two photos featuring a cat.
You will LOVE Offbeat Bride Managing Editor-Megan and Aaron's apartment. One part Hawaii, one part LA, and one part artist bungalow — but the best part is the crazy wall-mounting that greets you at the front door.
