Looking at Fay’s gorgeous Oakland apartment, it’s hard to not feel envious. Situated on the top floor of the building, her apartment boasts features most people desire in a home: large windows that provide plentiful light all day, original hardwood flooring and a working fireplace. And if that isn't enough, Fay enjoys amazing views of the skies over nearby San Francisco at sunset, as they begin to match the color palette of the rooms in her home.
