    Default A 1940s Bungalow

    Edgar Lyall, a television writer, and Elizabeth Wise, a Lifetime network executive, bought a 1,000-square-foot 1941 prewar bungalow in Studio City, California, that they quickly grew very fond of, but after living in it for several years and becoming intimately acquainted with how the house functioned, the couple felt that they needed to gain some space and light. Lyall says the design concept for an addition was clear: “We had this old 1940s black rotary-dial phone we kept on this funky, modern white spool table. We wanted an addition that would work like that: vintage and modern elements coexisting together. That was really our starting point.”

    I can appreciate his vision, I guess, but too modern for me. Doesn't look very bungalowy.

    that clear chair would be a hazard to anyone... drunk or sober. I like bits and pieces of it but I don't think it is much of a bungalow.

    it's a bungalow with an extension.
    as you can see, there are many types of bungalows: Bungalow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    i like the house itself. my only concern would be that i might get bored of the coloured panels on one side of the extension but i guess you can easily get rid of those if you do tire of them.
    they have some nice furniture and i like the chalkboard wall in the kitchen. hate the sofa and i'd change some of the artwork.

    I'm liking most of it - agree about the chalkboard wall. I'd love to do something like that at my house, but I live alone so who would I leave notes for? I like all the shelves too.

    I like this. I'd remodel the bathroom though.

    I'd redo the interior, but other than that I really like it.
