A Beautiful, Cozy Beach Bungalow in Venice, California

A Beautiful, Cozy Beach Bungalow in Venice, California

This beautiful, 800-square foot California home belong to Eloisa Ribeiro and Anderson Ribeiro. They live with their son, Phoenix and their rescue dogs, Pandu and Nalu.

The home was just a blank canvas when Eloisa moved in. She took time to decorate it with unique elements and it eventually turned out to a home they had always dreamed of.

Shall we tour the home and marvel at the beauty within?

The pillows on the couch are from The Wolf Nest, Eloisa’s company. The company uses up-cycled materials to make amazing dog beds and cushions.

The oversized rug in rich red hues is from Frances Loom. It not only pulls the space together but also adds a touch of warmth to the room.

The baskets and succulent piece are from local stores, Venice Vintage Paradise and Venice Plants, respectively.

The home boasts plenty of light, thanks to the West Elm lightweight curtains that offer privacy without darkening the space.

Would you believe the coffee table is actually an old Mexican door? It is one of the many items from a flea market in the house.

The cozy rope chair tucked into the corner is a Craigslist find. Your eye can’t miss the pillow made from vintage indigo mud cloth. It’s also from Wolf Nest and it is named Scarlett.

You also can’t fail to notice the large credenza in dark woods, across from the sofa. It is one of the favorite pieces in the home. Eloisa also kept some of her wedding décor pieces, like the dried flowers inside the Anthropologie horse vase.

The mid-century table paired with the Craigslist chairs radiates a stunning look. Your eye can’t miss the rattan-made woven lamp above the table. And the cow skull wall hanging was found at a street market in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

All of the ceramics are one of a kind and hand thrown. They are from EMK Ceramics, a Venice shop. The plenty of greenery adds life to the home.

The kitchen towels and olive oil are also from a local Venice shop, Gjusta Goods. The open shelves between the stove and fridge make up for insufficient storage space in the kitchen.

Eloisa seems to be lazy when it comes to doing laundry. So, the laundry room comes in handy for hiding the laundry mess.

The bathroom features an Urban Outfitters shower curtain. Crisp white shelves create more storage space in the bathroom. And the baskets help to minimize clutter in the space.

With a large, comfy reclaimed wood bed frame from West Elm, the guest bedroom radiates a warm charm. The Wolf Nest Peyton pillow makes an extra sleeping space for visiting dogs.

Above the bed is a gold cow skull. It creates a unified feel between the room and the kitchen. The skull is from Target.

You can’t fail to notice the macramé piece from Modern Macramé hanging at the edge of the bed. The West Elm reclaimed wood dresser matches the bed frame.

The couple regards their bedroom as their favorite element in the home. The bedroom features a natural-toned duvet from Gjusta Goods as well as a mud cloth pillow and indigo throw from the Wolf Nest.

Phoenix’s area is on the other side of the room. Extra shelves create a perfect place for showcasing art and plants the couple has been collecting over the years.

A string of Phoenix’s polaroids stand next to the shelving. The attractive mid-century wood dresser at the foot of the bed is another flea market find.

Most of the accessories on the dresser are from local Venice stores:

  • the wooden hand is from Venice Vintage Decorations
  • the “Live By The Sun Love By The Moon” art is from Burro Goods
  • The flowers and vase are from Pigsty

The couple transformed their garage into a wonderful, open space for Eloisa’s business to work out of. Succulents grow in metal buckets outside the office in honor of Phoenix. The office is always flooded with natural light, thanks to the garage on one side and a door on the other.

Floor-to-ceiling shelving and large baskets help to keep the place organized.
