As most of you know I am thoroughly obsessed with Andy Warhol’s silver Factory. We now have a full staff of 12 Glam Fairies and this squad needs a bigger tree for alllll the fairies to land on!
So long story short I found this AMAZING arts building. Chock full of inspiration… musicians, artist, sculpters– even the jim hensen muppet studio! As many of you know I am thoroughly a workaholic. I have definitely NOT been on a vacation in six years. The business is consuming my space! Which is amazing. Sort of like a blessing and a curse. See for me there is no “clocking out” so to speak. I am constantly thinking of ways to allow this business to flourish. That being said I had to decide what exactly it is that i want. I am not a retail service. Its not a walk in type of service. But at this point I know i need more space.
I love the Silver Factory! For those of you who dont know it was this AMAZINGLY huge space andy warhol used for his movies, artwork…everything and anything that he was brewing in that Campbell soup brain of his.
I want that same kind of space. A place where I can paint, do photoshoots, do my work, hold events, but not provide service in a retail capacity if that makes sense.
This building is fantastic but like any building over 100 years old it can have its expected “charming” elements– a slow elevator, some artists that are a bit TOO nosey– BUT overall there was an amazing energy I found when I went there.
So here are the different units tell me which one you think is the best:
This is a pretty big loft. I would replace all those lamps with big black chandelier’s– paint the ceiling silver. It also is great because it has a dark room on the right with a huge sink which would be great for cleaning my brushes. I absolutely LOVE the rustic charm to it. Now keep in mind– I am not so positive that my clients will understand this “lofty” concept so to speak… I mean it is a VERY old building but I really feel that this space would be amazing for doing photoshoots, hair and makeup, even retailing some merchandise– and the great part is that I wont have to deal with the regular walk in traffic of a store front.
Basically I want to add a little zen to my life and I think by keeping my work and my home two separate spaces it will really allow me to be very concentrated when I work and keep away distractions and also allow me to relax when I am home (something I am incapable of doing. So let me know what you guys think of this space!!! I need some feed back!
