It’s hard for me to view most artists as “tortured” when I envision them waking up in a beautiful sunlight filled loft apartment surrounded by knick knacks from their travels abroad, paintings and photographs from fellow artist friends. You don’t have to dabble in the arts to get that artist loft look in your own home. Focus on utilizing the natural light and arranging things in a comfortable way to help foster the creative genius within! Here are some great Krrb finds that will add that tortured artist feeling to your space.
