I was driving around looking at open houses one day and this particular listing knocked my socks off. Location – 14 blocks from the beach in Santa Monica, 2 blocks from Montana St. – home to fabulous shopping and restaurants, and style – through the roof (literally)!
Love that Italian vibe with the campanile architecture and perfect landscaping. Note the pineapple fixtures flanking the window on the tower.
A flowing staircase, an ethnic rug and personal artwork grace the foyer. White walls – I’ve been seeing a trend. I really like it – nice, bright and happy.
Stylish, yet understated living room. Designer fabrics, a splash of color and oh yes – a grand piano – a perfect touch to hosting a classic cocktail party.
A dual office with a fountain to calm the senses. Grass cloth walls, mid century style furniture and a zebra rug for that touch of drama. I could get a lot done in there or maybe nothing at all!
The back yard is perfect! An outdoor fireplace, great pool – I’m a big fan of the shape, apple green fabric on the chairs. Oh so inviting! Who knew that astro turf could ever look so good?
