Molly Cranna and Andrew Rudmann have lived in their Silver Lake apartment for two years, but at first it’s hard to tell. The couple has taken their time making the space their own, filling it with only the most essential and desired pieces. “For both of us, this is our first apartment without roommates, so we felt we were finally able to have full control over the aesthetic,” Molly says. At the heart has been a “less is more” mentality with furniture that respects the open layout and light-filled nature of the apartment. Rather than under-furnished, the minimalist approach feels just right — visually clean but also comfortable and livable. In a city like Los Angeles, refuge from oft-hectic work life is essential. And despite its proximity to a freeway, Molly and Andrew’s apartment is a breath of fresh air.
