CC’s Loft is bright, funky and full of art and personality. (Image credit: Submitted by CC)

Name: CC
Location: Downtown — Los Angeles, California

My apartment is a 725 square foot loft located in the heart of downtown LA. I love the feeling of downtown because it reminds me of NYC (where I lived for 10 wonderful years prior to coming to the West Coast).

I’d say my style is organized crazy. Like IKEA on steroids. I may have a slight hoarding problem but I keep my stuff clean and in order haha.

I have never lived in a loft before and I thought it would be hard to not have a separate bedroom but I love it, and it was much easier to decorate than I thought. I just wish I had more walls for art. And sometimes a wall for when mom comes to visit.

I’m proud of how happy my home feels, there are good vibes coming at you when you walk in. I absolutely love spending time on the couch with my snuggle buddy Frenchie, PiggieSmallz. Its so easy to entertain in the loft, I love having people over for vodka and meatballs, Swedish style.

I get my inspiration from pretty much everywhere. I do love mid century modern furniture but I’d like to mix it with current pieces of funky art.

Thanks, CC!
