At one point in my life, I had the perfect artist's studio. My wife found this 1400sq.ft corner loft studio in SE Portland (per-gentrification era) and we shared it for almost two years. I shot commercially and she used it as meeting space for her wedding and portrait clients. It was rad. High-ceilings, North and Eastern views, and it was super cheap. I think we paid maybe $900/mo all utilities included. It had just the right amount of charming griminess. There was quite a collection of characters and artists that made me feel like I was someplace special.
I took this photo from the eastern view of the studio. I spent a lot of time looking out these windows thinking about life, art, and what to eat for dinner.
When we bought our first house, we let it go and moved into a home office situation. Much more practical, but a lot less bohemian. Oh well, I guess we all grow up sometime.
