Who: Mike Palermo, CCO of Junk Food Clothing
Where: Culver City, CA
Style: Modern Farmhouse
For Mike Palermo, creating a home that felt simple and natural was key, which comes as something of a contrast to the rest of his life. As chief creative officer of Junk Food Clothing, he's immersed in a multi-colored — and sometimes chaotic — world of patterns and images. (The Venice, CA-based company creates T-shirts inspired by pop culture and vintage designs.) When he and his wife found a ho-hum bungalow in Culver City, they decided to renovate it with a clean, modern farmhouse concept in mind. The result: A home that kills it in the natural light department and also manages to do minimalism without feeling cold.
