Although the exterior of this house in Venice, CA says "beach cottage," the owner wanted an updated contemporary look that would be practical for 2 dogs and herself.

The original furniture was large and bulky and the color showed all the dog hair.

The European styled sofa and chair are covered with a sage/ off white printed ultrasuede material that is able to take the abuse of 2 puppies. The custom maple cabinet stores the TV and the stereo equipment. Funky track lighting, a geometric patterned area rug and new artwork complete the updated look.
