Eclectic and collected, the Venice Beach living room of model and designer Erin Wasson features a gallery wall brimming with art and objects, modern and well-loved leather chairs, and a beautiful ornate fireplace. Included in her collection of art are a number of works by artist friends and Masonic ephemera. She made the coffee table base in a welding class.
Creative director Whitney Leigh Morris lives in a “tiny canal cottage,” as she calls it, on Venice’s famed canals. The quaint 362-square-foot home has an L-shaped built-in sofa with storage cubbies underneath. We love her off-white color palette with its mix of textures and patterns—it feels airy and bright.
The Venice Beach home of model and photographer Eileen Peters and creative director Mark Wiesmayr, which was featured on The Selby, is what we’d call a surf shack. Their living room has a laid-back ’70s vibe with a hanging cadiz chandelier, kilim floor pillows, an eclectic bookcase, and a shaggy carpet.
With a distinct SoCal vibe, bohemian jewelry designer Irene Neuwirth’s home features a beautiful collection of local artwork, offbeat accents, and a feminine, Mexico-inspired color palette. “My home is playful and eclectic,” she says. “Sometimes I feel like I live in a giant kids’ house.”
Actress-musician Mía Maestro’s Arts and Crafts bungalow in Venice maintains its rich, darkly stained molding, but the Buenos Aires native has brightened it up with white walls and an assortment of colorful, patterned, embroidered textiles. We love her combination of modern furniture with worldly accents.
Featured in Domino, the Venice Beach home of contemporary art advisor Meredith Darrow pairs classic midcentury design with rustic appeal for California-cool look. We love how her vintage Beni Ourain rug warms up her Danish modern furnishings.
Amanda Chantal Bacon, founder of pressed-juice shop Moon Juice, took on an extensive renovation of her Venice guesthouse and cottage, gutting the home in the process. Thoughtfully sourcing an earth collection of Japanese, European, and Californian furniture and accessories, she created a unique home with a modernist cabin–y cottage vibe.
