2 Los Angeles Bedroom Inspiration


When I was in college at Tulane, my family moved from Fort Worth, TX to Los Angeles so my little sister could pursue a career in dance. Not long after moving there, they purchased a great two bedroom townhouse in Culver City. The bones and the spatial layout are fantastic, but they are ready to do some updating. There are great high sloping ceilings with exposed beams and hardwood floors, but the bathrooms and kitchen are a bit outdated and not quite our style. My dad {who is currently restoring historic homes in Pasadena} already redid the downstairs half bath into a very serene little space...it's fantastic. {pics to come}

One room that needs work is my sisters room. Next year she is going to college, so I plan on turning it into OUR room. {I don't feel bad about this at all because when I went to college, my bedroom became her dance studio, and then her bedroom.} Right now when I go to visit, I sleep an air mattress on her floor. We need to make it more conducive to us both sleeping there. I'm thinking twin beds or a cleverly hidden second bed. The ceiling is so tall, that we need some verticality. I'm thinking tall bookshelves behind the beds with our collected treasures and art work. One thing that won't be difficult is the color palette: she loves black and white too...So, this begins my inspiration collection:

Do you think the black white thing is genetic?

I love the pics, the shelving makes me nervous, due to that little earthquake situation.

I think you should look into bunk beds. Where am I going to sleep?

I don't know...maybe it is, maybe something my mom ate when she was pregnant with us...

Lulu and I discussed these pics this afternoon, she was on board for most of them...we decided we were more concerned about the safety of my green paper-mache dinosour that I made in the fourth grade falling and hurting himself in the earthquake than the stuff falling on us...but we agreed we might to the side wall instead for our safety...

As far as where you will sleep, our last idea was we would just line the entire perimeter of the room in beds, so there would be plenty of space for everyone...
