#20 Cooper & Derrick's Studio

May 1, 2007

Name: Cooper and Derrick
Location: San Diego, CA
Size & Type: 640 square feet, studio

Favorite resource:
Craig's List and Ebay. This is our first condo and everything was purchased on a tight budget. CL and Ebay have been great for finds like most of the furniture, to the drapes and even the kitchen island!


2 People, 1 Labrador, 1 Home business and can seat 10 comfortably for Monday Night Football! The living and work space are combined but still defined by the back of the sofa. The king size bed
is tucked away behind sliding drapes. We stained the concrete dark for depth. We installed floor-to-ceiling drapes at the front that pull shut like a theater at night since we are street level. Everything is
flexible and cohesive. Its our little superhero space - by day its a walk in office and by night its a very comfortable home.

Your favorite element:

The stained concrete floors. When we moved in there were lame pergo floors that bounced when you walked on them. The click clack of my dogs claws on the pergo drove me crazy. One day I just ripped them out. I rented a concrete grinder and then stained it a dark ebony color. I love them now!
