When a Los Angeles-based couple decided to make the move from the bustling streets of West Hollywood to the tranquil beachside neighborhood of Venice, they invested in a three-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom blank slate. To transform the light and airy space into a warm and welcoming home, the new owners and newlyweds, an Irish jewelry executive and a Persian venture capitalist, knew they needed to bring in a professional to help make the space their own.
The couple called on the expertise of none other than Kerry Vasquez of Kerry Vasquez Design, known for her eclectically modern approach to interior design. "The goal was to create a beachy sanctuary that would be more comfortable and stylish than your favorite West Hollywood haunt and that also reflected a slightly Middle Eastern aesthetic," the designer tells Hunker. "In general, I wanted the home to feel warm, comfortable, modern, and timeless while reflecting the clients' personalities and backgrounds." Frankly, the designer nailed it, as you'll see ahead.
