Apartment Therapy House Tours: Kara & Ken's Modern Condo in the Sky

Name: Kara & Ken, with their two kitties Jack and Bean
Location: Long Beach, California
Size: 850 square feet
Years lived in: 2 -- own

Kara and Ken Pearson took a great leap of faith in this new condo when they decided to downsize from a three bedroom house. We first saw Kara and Ken's home in the Small Cool Contest. With an incredible view of Long Beach, this condo sits on the fifth floor of a classy multi-unit residence. Kara showed me before photos and it's quite impressive how much style and great love they threw into their remodel.
