Thank you so much, cloud dreams!
The credenza is actually a vintage Telefunken hi-fi that I purchased at a garage sale many moons ago. When I'm feeling nostalgic, I throw a Roxy Music album on there, or even the latest Cut Copy album. I love it! I've entertained the thought of taking out the stereo equipment and making it an actual credenza, but I can't seem to do it. :) Thanks again!

Best,
Shelley

Thank you seamstress! I can't say enough great things about San Diego and I am glad you are enjoying your visit! There's plenty of stuff here to justify multiple return trips. Safe travels to you!

Best,
Shelley

Thank you! The building was already there. Th building appears to be quite an obstruction of the view; however, once you advance into the space, the views on either side of it opens up to views overlooking the harbor. Take a look:

Also, a few more pics of the view as you move into the space.

Hi, nicjac!

Thank you! And yes, I did. I took parts of an Ikea wardrobe system and then cut pieces of lumber and attachment pieces to create the middle portion of the divider that you see. This allowed me to create a visual separation of the space upon entry without diminishing the size of the space with a cumbersome divider or wall. Also, it allowed to place a tv on the backside to watch movies in bed. ;)

Hi, CanadianMango!

In order to capture the framing of the large windows with the furniture, I opted for the view that you see in the first picture. However, the views to either side of the building that you get to experience once you move further into the space, or, happen to be sitting in the dining and living room areas are the lovely San Diego sunsets that I relish.

Hello, itsbliss!
Thank you for the great compliments; I really appreciated them!

The floor lamp is a replica of the Castiglioni Floor Lamp and can be found through several companies. Just google 'replica arco lamp' and you should get several hits. Happy Hunting!
