Pitch:When I first saw this little bungalow I knew I had to have it. Compared to the cookie cutter Mediterranean style apartments of Orange County this little gem had a Cape Cod feel all over it. It's perfect for one person The lighting is great and the layout couldn't be more simple. I wanted to go with a minimalist look with a pinch of relaxed beach style since I'm just a mile from the ocean. Storage was a bit of a challenge, but in the end everything fit perfectly in the space.
Your favorite element:
Favorite element in my place is the fireplace. Although it's a working gas fireplace, I chose to put a glass candle chandelier inside versus the typical grouping of candles.
