Hip hip hooray for Leslie & Aaron and their “Kramer House” and to all the Retro Renovation readers who may have had a hand in helping them come out #1 — that’s NUMBER ONE — in the La Conservancy’s competition to name the favorite residence in Los Angeles. Way to go! I first wrote about “Leslie’s Kitschy Dreamboat Time Capsule” almost two years ago, and since that time, it’s become one of my most popular posts ever.
And then there are Leslie and Aaron — who don’t take it all *too* seriously, filling the house with Moss lamps, peacock sculptures and light-up paintings… but who *do* take it seriously enough to have applied for and received historic certification for the house. They are great caretakers and surely, lovin’ the house they’re in. Leslie also sends me lots of story ideas, here are some:
- Readers’ favorite junque shoppes
- The first time Retro Renovation readers bumped into each other and realized they had the blog in common
- Collectible Baranger Diamond displays
Congrats, you two — when are you starting the margarita blender? And: Muchisimas gracias a todos who voted! Read more about the winners here at LA Conservancy.
