My apartment was built in 1926 and has that classic Los Angeles Art Deco architecture and history that I adore. I live there alone and I work from home, so we spend a lot of time together. Honestly, it sort of does feel like this place is its own character. She's gone through a lot of reinventions, but this latest one is definitely my favorite. In 2016 I decided to completely change how I use the space. It was quite a switcheroo — the living room became my office, the office became my bedroom, and the bedroom became a TV den. Now the natural light and the scale of the rooms syncs up with how the spaces are used and everything just makes more sense.
