From the lack of a special wall, scale, and even lighting, one of the things people consistently say interrupts their art-making process is not having an adequate art space. With these five homes, you can avoid the lines that wrap around the block with your own home-gallery.
“Art is the new vernacular in luxury housing. Years ago, when people started remodeling for resale, everyone had a pool, so a tennis court became the new status. Then it was a stable, filtered water, a crowd theater, or his and her master suites which took up 25 percent of the home’s total square footage. Today, Contemporary Art is a driver. As this category grows in popularity at auction sales, buyers need homes with high ceiling heights and gigantic walls in order to showcase these enormous pieces of art,” adds Jeff Hyland, President of Hilton & Hyland.
Whether you want to start from scratch in your own studio or marvel at over 100 curated art installations, these art spaces are sure to inspire any artist or art connoisseur.
