We’re looking for unique living spaces—got one?
Curbed’s House Calls series offers readers a chance to go inside the homes of Angelenos, and we are currently on the hunt for interesting subjects who’d be willing to open up their living spaces for a visit and a photo shoot. (Curbed also does House Calls in NYC, Chicago, SF, and more.) Whether you live in a kitchsy-cool mobile home in Eagle Rock or a little bungalow in Larchmont or a loft in a 1920s building in Hollywood, we want to see it. If you just finished rehabbing your diamond-in-the-rough Craftsman, if you’ve been waiting to show off the perfect 1950s time capsule you call home, we want to see it!
Interested? If you’d like to be considered for House Calls, please send us an email (subject line: House Calls) and a few photos of your place. Include a few tantalizing details about where you live: what neighborhood you’re in, what’s special about your home, and a bit about why you think it would be a great feature. Sorry, real estate agents and landlords, but we will not consider any dwellings that are currently for sale or for rent.
On the fence? Take a look at some of the great LA homes that we’ve already shown off on House Calls:
↑ Danielle and her husband Thomas share their approximately 600-square-foot apartment in West Adams with a dog, a cat, and a brand new baby. The couple significantly scaled back their possessions before their son came into the picture, “trying not to bring him into a house full of crap.”
↑ Brandon and James are the second tenants ever to live in their “Mid-Century eclectic” Santa Monica apartment, even though the building dates back to 1955. Perhaps that’s because their rent-controlled unit has them paying just $837 a month for a one-bedroom?
↑ In Koreatown, Jonathan bought a dated condo in a handsome building, knowing full well it was going to need some expensive work. Three months later, he had this minimalist dreamboat.
↑ Rhonda and Eric added on to their Mar Vista house with the help of architect Neil Denari, and the results are bright, bold, and totally different from how the very traditional house looks from the curb.
↑ Laura’s Los Feliz apartment is basically a 700-square-foot showplace for her wonderful collections of vintage treasures, from Mid-Century Modern furniture to retro travel ephemera.
↑ When LA native Marika moved back to the Westside and right into a spot on a walk street in Venice, she brought her colorful, “Too much is never enough!” approach to decorating with her.
