A HOLLYWOOD LIVING ROOM
Here is the living room and dining room of our Hollywood house showcased on Apartment Therapy. The deed states the house was built in 1922, other papers found stated 1924 and 1927, so just think cable cars and silent movies, If you knew my skinny narrow driveway you would for sure think cable cars. The style of the house is Spanish Colonial which was common at the time and location in this area of Hollywood. The cable car line was only a few blocks away making it easy for the anyone working at the studios to get to work. The Gordon's, the first owners, had the house built as well as the one next door. I like to think Mr. Gordon built many of the sets for movies like The Tramp or the original Ben Hur all the while Mrs. Gordon was doing Greta Garbo's hair and make up. I think they were happy. How do I know, I don't, it's just a feeling. There is light in this house that somehow lifts you up. That light got them through the Great Depression and now that light is getting us through the great recession. Like people in history, like the Gordon's, we will be someday Hollywood history.
