"Everything is an excuse for art and color," Arnie muses about her apartment, or as she calls it, her "pied-à-terre:" a 900-square-foot, open-concept living space on the attic story of a Victorian house in Concord. "As a young girl I always wanted to live in an old attic in a historic home or a Manhattan loft," Arnie explains. "When I inherited this huge old Queen Anne from my aunt, the attic, with its widow's walk, vaulted ceilings, and sloping walls was screaming: this is home! Reinvent me!"
