The Vintage-Filled Echo Park Bungalow Two LA Transplants Call Home

Back in May, the New York Times Style Section ran a story about the rush of creative class New Yorkers abandoning the city for the low rents and other charms of Los Angeles. A lot of the piece focused on a woman named Turner, in LA for only a couple months and living in a perfect-sounding, two-bedroom Echo Park bungalow with a front garden/patio for far less than she'd paid for her junior one-bedroom in New York. The gist of the story is true: The bungalow is pretty perfect, thanks to the interior design know-how of Turner's roommate, Martha, a professional designer. (And the rent is actually $1,250 per person. It's still immense.). For this edition of House Calls, we visited their home and talked to Turner and Martha about the "good vibes" that brought them both there, years apart; why it's so great living in Echo Park; and the hodgepodge of blue-chip vintage pieces and artwork that decorate their abode.
