    Default A hand-crafted Santa Monica home



    ( Mariah Tauger / Los Angeles Times ) Aaron Kramer has a simple credo: "Trash is the failure of imagination." The artist, who works with found objects and castoffs, applied that philosophy to the renovation and decoration of his Santa Monica home. Plunked between a 1930s movie star mansion designed by Richard Neutra and a residence by contemporary architect Melinda Gray, Kramer's 1936 house was, he says, "a mish-mash, a blend of Cape Cod cottage with a little Santa Fe flair and New York loft details." Working with Glynn Design Build, the Kramers blew out walls, opened up ceilings and filled their home with handmade wit. Here, Kramer and daughter Ana share a moment in the living room.

    I really like it. Except for the wainscoting in the bathroom by the tub. That has to go.

    Love everything in photos 2-7, the kitchen table, the clothes storing thing, and the last photo. The rest I'm impartial to.

    I love this piece of furniture, though I'm not sure what it's called.

    I like most of it.

    ^^^I like that piece of furniture too.

    The first pic with the dad hugging his daughter and the dog right there sets such a nice tone for it all!

    That photo looks like an old potato or vegetable storage container - love it.

    The bathroom would have to be taken out to the curb with the rest of the trash. What. In. The. Hell?
