    Default A 600-square-foot Venice bungalow

    Greg Chait designs handmade cashmere sweaters and blankets sold at exclusive stores across the country. Just one of his Ten Pound cashmere blankets can command $2,000 – or more. But despite his focus on the luxury market, Chait prefers to make his home in the simplest of settings: an old Venice surf shack with about 600 square feet of living space. It’s a bohemian retreat that captures the designer’s personality, friends say, and his sense of humor. Here, Chait takes a look out his bedroom window, which is covered in a Vietnamese fabric that he describes as “100% polyester and flammable.” His house is decorated with things acquired on his travels, including the African figurine on the windowsill. “He looks like a slingshot,” Chait says, laughing. “But he keeps watch over the house.”

    What a cute use of space. He's got the best of both worlds-private, detached house with a garden, with the size, utility and ease of maintenance of an apartment

    I like the house. I would paint the walls to add color, but it's charming just as it is.
