Greetings From Venice, California.

I received an email a while back from architect Tatiana Barhar of Verdego Design, and ever since I've been following the major remodel she and her family have been undergoing of their lovely modern home in Venice, California. In the meantime, the family has been residing in a 26' long, 200 square foot 1962 Airstream trailer they've set up in their backyard until their fabulous new home is finished. Tatiana designs really cool retail spaces for such clients such as Quicksilver, Roxy and Vans shops and has designed her family's new home herself, along with Carlos Zubieta. I love all the tall, floor to ceiling windows looking out to the lush green exteriors, which almost feels tree house like to me. Such nice, open flowing rooms - a welcome change from the somewhat cramped Airstream, I bet!

Work on the 1750 square foot remodel is getting closer to completion and I wanted to share a little bit of the amazing work being done. They've been at this project for fourteen months now and are quite ready to start living large, and move out of the the tiny trailer, which Tatiana has said was a challenge, indeed! I would have loved to get my hands on that Airstream, but as soon as work is complete, off it goes to live at a shrimp farm in La Paz, Baja California, owned by a family friend where they can visit it periodically when nostalgia takes over. I have a feeling with a lovely home like this, those visits could be few and far between! Thanks so much for sharing Tatiana and congratulations on the design of your beautiful new home.

What a gorgeous home. I'm dying over that kitchen!

Robin said...

So clean and spare yet so inviting. Are they accepting random strangers as houseguests?

I have had the pleasure of knowing both Carlos and Tatiana for over 10 years and this home is the culmination of a HUGE dream for them. Believe me, the pix don't do it justice. Both of their talent really shines through. Bravo.

Beautiful! And I really love the living room lamp. Anyone know where that came from?
