Designer Jennifer Siegal’s own house is a modest 1920s Spanish bungalow on the leeward side of busy Lincoln Boulevard in Venice, California, that looks nothing like what she makes at her day job. A little bit homely, a little bit avant-garde, it’s a place to try out ideas, test products, and show off to potential clients and give them a feel for how she might make their own new house work. If they don’t grok Siegal’s crunchy-granola-meets-industrial vibe, then maybe they should just move on.
