L.A. Cabin Living

June 1, 2012





















. . . . . .

One of my favorite parts about my trip to L.A. in April is this place.  It’s a small cabin in Echo Park that I rented for the week (through a friend of a friend). It was the perfect place for me – I could have my coffee in the morning on the porch, send some emails or read at the table, and later in the day, the sunset from the back deck (and the view of L.A.!) was stunning. Simply done – but really thoughtful and tasteful. It was exactly my kind of place.  So I couldn’t help but shoot a lot of photos while I was there.  It was tough to leave – I wouldn’t mind moving in permanently!

(The great owners, Patrick & Danielle, now rent it out via AirBnB, too – so if you’re interested, details can be found here)

(ps – yes I did snap a photo from the shower. I couldn’t resist. The things I’ll do for a photograph … )

    What kind of camera do you use?
    Just kidding. These photos are great: I’d love to visit this spot.

    I share your sentiments. A perfect getaway or permanent perch. Love the vertical wall boards, and the view is other-worldly. Or is it -worldy? Who cares, the photos are primo, as always.

    Seeing AND feeling your love for this place. Sort of like everyone one needs, halved. Is there a spare room and room for my dog? : )
