Years after my New York experience, I did end up buying a loft in Los Angeles, at the iconic corner of Hollywood and Vine within The Broadway Hollywood. Here is where I met Jennifer Culp, our Interior Design Contributor; Anita Rosenberg, our Spiritualist Contributor and Jennifer Dail; our Publisher. It’s amazing how people come into your life…Jennifer C. was at the sales party when we made our offer, Anita was my next door neighbor and Jennifer D. worked at the front desk. We made instant connections and have remained in each others’ lives ever since.
Charlize Theron also bought a place in this building and I loved the space from the moment that I stepped into it. It is a corner unit with views of Capital Records, the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Observatory. It even has a balcony with a fireplace that leads to the pool. The feel is open, sophisticated and downright “cool”. No wonder celebrities clamor to rent it out when they are working on movies out here.
We are fortunate to live in L.A., where the architectural selection is so vast and neighborhoods so diverse, that you can truly find your slice of heaven here. I toured this property just the other day located in the Hollywood Hills above the strip. What a space…its loft-like nature was spectacular, not to mention the inviting pool that greets you from almost every room. This house just got rented, but will be available soon for $25k/month. Wow…think of all those artsy parties you could have in this pad…I visualize art installations by the pool and a few Hobley’s and Kirkland’s gracing the walls.
Lofts bring out your “inner child”. You can unleash your creative energies and express who you are or who you want to be. Remember that blank canvas…Pollock away!
