Simple Sunday: Peek at Newlyweds' Home

I'm joining Elaine at  Sunny Simple Life with a quick peek at The Writer and Sammy's new house in LA.

It is a 1920s Spanish Style home (forgot to take pictures of the outside), located in an older area of central Los Angeles.  The house had been totally refurbished before going on the market and includes a Master Suite addition.

 Living area

The Newlywed's have done a really nice job of decorating, adding some built-ins and making the most of their space.

Dining area

Glassed in shelves added under kitchen bar for more storage


Storage benches in "eat-in" end of kitchen

Hall closet cleverly turned into open storage and display space

 Shelves added in extra space in hallway by Master Suite

As you can see Stanley has also settled in nicely.

I also forgot to take pictures of their nice backyard with a couple of citrus trees growing back there!
Nevertheless, a cozy, comfortable, pretty home.

Super cozy! I love the warmth and texture of that farm table. I could sit there all day long.


How lovely. I love to see young people getting their first home and decorating it so pretty, cozy and inviting! Thanks for sharing a peak with us. Thank you so much for your sweet and kind visit to see my laundry room reveal. Have a super week.

It sounds like you have a lot of change in your life right now. I had to read back through a lot of posts to see why your were relocating. I wish you luck in North Hills. The Valley is too hot for me. Once you are settled and looking for a place to buy, you might consider Ventura County. I saw on one of your maps that you had circle Agoura Hills which is nearly in Ventura County.
Tennis is big in CA so I am sure Mr. T will get up a regular game soon.

I am new to your blog and also
had to read back.. sounds like
your settling in. I lived
in Woodland Hills for a time but
the hills were a bit much for me
I love flat land.. am now in
Clearwater,Fl and this is perfect after my 16 moves in past!
Thanks so much for your visit to
my blog and your kind comments.
Good luck in LA..

Yes, Ann, this home is beautiful!
I like the white kitchen, and good use of shelves and other storage areas, and altogether the newlyweds have created a comfortable, cozy, and pretty home!
I love that Stanley found himself a nice sunny spot to sleep, and he certainly does look well settled in.
I love older homes, and think the Spanish style is interesting - do they have a tile roof?
I can see why you must feel bursting with pride with what they've accomplished here.

What a beautiful home! All of the built-ins make everything look so custom! I love the colors, too!

That's lovely, and so bright. They have done a great job of making it their own.
