It’s hard to imagine that the Malibu home of interior designer Vanessa Alexander of Alexander Design and her husband Steven, a partner at talent agency ICM, could have ever been described as “classic Georgian” meets “unauthentic Tuscan” meets “Balinese.” But that is exactly how she relays it. “Now I would describe it as a Tuscan farmhouse,” she says, after a total gut renovation, which involved taking down walls, adding skylights, replacing every surface, adding new windows and doors, changing the floor plan dramatically, and bringing in more than a dozen 100-year-old olive trees.
Oh, and let’s not forget about the vegetable garden.
