Name: Meredith Jenks
Location: Echo Park, CA
Size & Type: 395 sq.ft. 1 Bedroom
Favorite resource:The Internet, estate sales, and thrift stores
Pitch: When I found this apartment on Craigslist I knew it was the one. It has the most fantastic view, hardwood floors, and a washer + dryer!
I like colorful things surrounding me, and after unpacking I realized I also like a lot of toys. I collect pieces from thrift stores and estate sales mostly so I have a lot of things that are unique to my home. Like I said before, my place is still a work in progress. I don't even have a couch yet, but I think it still expresses my personality pretty thoroughly.
Your favorite element:
My favorite element is the view. My old apartment looked out onto a parking lot so I always kept the blinds closed. Now I can see Dodger Stadium and the Echo Park Hills from my front porch. My favorite piece of furniture is the credenza, I bought it at a garage sale for 3 dollars.
