sneak peek: elena coleman

by Grace Bonney

today’s first sneak peek (the second to follow at 1pm today) belongs to los angeles architect elena coleman. her downtown apartment is part of the douglas building which was build in honor or t.d. stimson (a lumber baron turned real estate mogul) features original wood flooring from the 1800s. elena’s clean, open, minimalist space inspires me to open up a bit today and clean things out. it’s never too early to de-clutter and spring clean. it’s also never too early to try to find an apartment with windows like these. i’m majorly in love with her bedroom windows- the metal work around them is so cool. you can view larger (and extra) versions of elena’s photos right here or just click “read more” below to view the full selection of home photos. thanks to elena for sharing and congrats to elena and her business partner elizabeth kountzman on the launch of their new design firm and furniture collection, dilettante.
