Your Name: LANY (aka “Nancy Isaacson,” guest author of this, this, and this.)
Where is the location of your home? Venice Beach, CA (Los Angeles), 2 blocks form the beach and defying the LA area by being a short walk to lots of great restaurants, bars and shopping.
What type of property it is? Contemporary Condo. Loft style, concrete floors, views of the Santa Monica mountains, sunsets, and on a clear day all the way to the Hollywood sign and Getty Center.
How long have you lived there? Closed escrow just over three years ago… time flies!
Who else lives there? My wonderful boyfriend, and a couple plants (plants have a very questionable lifespan in my place – the gorgeous palm tree has since kicked the bucket and been replaced).
If you could change one thing about it, what would that be? Make it bigger! We’re actually looking for a new, bigger place… An actual change I could make: I would like to put in some hardwood flooring in some places like the bedroom, so it’s a bit “warmer”… I love the finished concrete, but wouldn’t mind mixing up the textures a bit.
The photo above is LANY’s livingroom. The “desk in the far left corner is where I do my DWing,” she writes. Check out the rest of her place after the jump:
This is TK’s view, which she says is the “best part of the condo,” though “that telephone pole really needs to come down.”
“Kitchen – my pride and joy; I redid the entire thing when I moved in – custom cabinetry, island, backsplash, etc.”
“Bathroom – best. tub. ever.”
“Our wine rack – curated lovingly by my boyfriend.”
