A giant mural by the artist Daniel Johnston dominates the outdoor garden of an art-filled home in Venice designed by Chris Rudin.

 Inside, a colorful sectional softens the industrial vibe.

Wide expanses of glass grace an open-plan residence in Santa Monica by architect Carol Beth Cozen.  

Interior designer Denise Kuriger used custom furniture to create a luxurious outdoor living space for this prefab Santa Monica home.

Design aficionado Ted Dhanik purchased this Los Angeles home in 2008 and has since overseen a top-down remodel. The house features a fully integrated automation system that includes everything from preferred shower settings to remote-controlled cameras, gates, doors, and blinds.

The interior is strikingly airy and minimally furnished. 

A renovation by Dimster Architecture transformed a Beachwood Canyon home by repurposing and converting multiple rooms, creating a more open, modern dwelling. 

While trying to preserve the design intention of the original Buff, Straub and Hensman home, architect Don Dimster added important extras, like a gorgeous rooftop terrace.
