Shelterporn snore, more
In a coup of who cares, the LA Times Home section today features a story on the sleep industry. Yawn. The lead, with 9 whole pictures of the Getty Villa's gardens, is better than usual for them. But click on over to the NY Times and once again, our hometown rag wilts in comparison. New York has a gorgeously photographed Park Slope brownstone complete with audio tour slideshow, a Texas butler, and fantasies of wintertime plant orders. The NY paper does what shelterporn is supposed to: it stirs lust in your breast, for beautifully photographed plants, for a $1.5 million brownstone, even a chaste lust for your very own bow-tie wearing butler. Meanwhile back home we cover snoring. That's not shelterporn; it's shelter, old married couple with separate beds style.
This morning CurbedLA stops in Beverly Hills, North Hollywood, Playa Vista and Orange County: apartments, development, development, and buying a house on the worst block, respectively.
Show off your style: Apartment Therapy LA launched an art contest (what's on your walls?) yesterday. We're so there.
