That's Rather Lovely, the nice twin of That's Rather Hideous, highlights clever decisions in interior design or architecture as revealed in photos or listings. Have a nominee? Say hello.
After we've feasted on too much mid-century mod, we get a hankering for the meat-and-potatoes of a good old Craftsman bungalow. Consider 985 Hancock Ave in West Hollywood. This one is a beauty--original detailing, beam ceilings, lots of built-ins and wainscoting. And the broker gets points for including historical aerial shots of West Hollywood in the listing. This three-bedroom, two-bath also includes a guest house and pool. List price: $1.5 million. If you're afraid to commit, the owner is also considering a lease: $5,500 per month. And the guest house is currently renting for $1,800 per month.
