This is an interior photo of a casita of a listing that will be posted in MLS in two weeks. The home is in Phoenix Garfield Historical District - an area experiencing increased interest due to its character and proximity to a vibrant down town area.

I chose this particular photo because it represents beautifully the underlying principle of the owner's design throughout the home -  love of minimalism. There is no unneccessary detail, just clean-cut, geometrical lines with well-defined function. Color and contrast is used to increase interest and outline function.

On the photo below the white panel serves as a privacy wall, separating the living room and the bedroom; yet it can slide and create a deeper perspective from the living room of this 450 sq.ft. casita, originally built about 100 years ago.

I took those photos with my Canon PowerShot SD1400IS camera, when I was preparing photos for the flyers and postcards for the listing.

This is my entry for Dick Greenberg's Photo Contest 2016.

Hi Sharon Tara , I have a photo of the living room decorated by the owner, and it looks very pretty. It was not my picture, so, I just used mine, and the way it looked when I was taking the photos. When we stage the living room next week, it will be different. Thanks for stopping by, and commenting. I appreciate it.

Hi Gabe Sanders , That's the spirit, we hope so.

Hi Patricia Feager , thanks for stopping by with a comment. You are very right - it is very unique, it feels like a jewel box.  

Hi, Joanna Cohlan,  thanks for visiting and your comment.

Good evening Steffy Hristova ,  Your photos show a unique home, in contract to being in the Historic District.  It would be interesting to see the rest of the home and others in the community.

Thanks for stopping by, Ron and Alexandra Seigel , I enjoyed looking at the geometrical shapes - rectangles, squares, cylinders, circles; all beautifully emphasized.

There's something to be said for the clean lines...the older I get the more calming they are to me.
