    Default Santa Monica Shangri-La: A tropical family retreat




    When they married, Bob Ramirez and Lorri Kline made a modest proposal for their dream home: "We wanted a small farm that was Santa Monica-adjacent," Ramirez says, "a place where we could start our family, grow our own food and raise chickens."

    I love the pool and yard area, but I got a claustrophobic feeling just looking at the interior.

    Furnishings are too Cost Plus/Pier One for my taste, but the house itself is lovely.

    Wow! I think they did a great job on all of it. It looks actually lived in and enjoyed. Those are lucky kids.

    Is that the lady of the house snorkling topless in the ornamental pool in the first picture? WTF?

    Love most of it, especially the use of timber but I'd get rid of those heavy, dark leather sofas in the den(?) which are way too big and all wrong.
