Through The Neighborhood: Peeking In Open Windows

Through The Neighborhood: Peeking In Open Windows

Every time I visit San Francisco, I always notice that there's a fair amount of upper-story apartments that don't believe in drawing the curtains. I've seen some pretty amazing apartments just on evening walks back from dinner through the Mission, and Laure's shared some equally amazing peeks from her daily walks in Venice.

A friend of mine went for a walk at dusk yesterday and happened upon this modern home with walls of glass with an impressive collection of iconic modern furniture--it practically looks like a museum. "Often while winding through the streets, I happen upon a house with its insides on display for all to see," she said, "It feels a little wrong to look, perhaps a little more wrong to take a photo--but this house was just asking for it!"

Just seeing these photos also reminded me of when I used to live near the Franklin Hills and would walk my dog after work--we would walk up near the Shakespeare bridge up in the hills and marvel in all the different kinds of architecture and styles that LA has to offer--my favorite was this one house in the corner that was ultra modern with its concrete walls and a two car garage with all-glass doors that housed an 1976 Porsche 911 in mint condition. (The other car was a Honda Civic).
