A Previous Life

I just found these pictures from my previous life.  I thought I'd post them here so I don't lose them again.


Before my husband and I got together I lived in a studio apartment in Santa Monica. I loved it.  The building had 5 units and all the neighbors were good friends. It was 600 square feet but it had a fantastic garden patio.  The entire building had a cottage feel with vines on most of the walls.  I only paid $650 a month for rent.  


My only concern was that we, the 4 women who lived there and the one gay guy, were all single .  I thought I was jinxed.  After several bad first dates, I decided I was going to be single forever. So, if I was going to live there alone forever then I was going to make it a great space.  I remodeled.   


The only pictures I have were the ones below and three other blurry ones which I can't find.  I remember wanting to mix cottage with modern with Frieda Kahlo and struggling to do so.  I also remember that with only 600sq feet everything had to have multiple uses and good storage. This is how it turned out.
