A Wanderlust Inspired Space and a Cozy Eclectic Home In Mar Vista California
























One part hippy and one part mid century modern the opposing elements in this home come together in a spritely funky way and happily reflects the home owners sustainable wanderlust personalities

Ah, summer weather calls for summer living. And where better to find inspiration for a beachy infused home decor aesthetic then Los Angeles. This home featured on Apartment Therapy is the home of Mike and Shannon Parry and their two children Asha and Boden who live in the Mar Vista are of Los Angeles. With a pared down minimalist yet eclectic vibe this home is at once cozy and a kind of living art studio. One part hippy and one part mid century modern the opposing elements in this home come together in a spritely funky way and happily reflects the home owners sustainable wanderlust personalities. What I love about this home is that the house itself is simple and not %100 updated—note the eighties kitchen. But instead of throwing up their hands, the home owners found a way to make that blast from the past work—and in a good way. Be sure to check out the Q&A with the couple on Apartment Therapy were you can also get all the affordable details on what went in to creating this super fun space. That is what I love about the homes featured on Apartment Therapy, all the information is provided in detail on the items in the photos, and a fair amount of it is affordable. So what you waiting for? Head on over to ApartmentTherapy.com and you just may find your next remodel.

    What a charming family home! I’m totally envious of the incredible light they seem to get in every single room!

    I actually love the look of the interior, it’s a very good balance between retro and modern which I think is pretty hard to pull off. Love this feature, Ali!

    I think this house is beautiful. It’s simple but nicely done. I love how much light they have. I would kill for that kind of natural life in my house. Down side of living in a condo, not alot of natural light.
