Malibu Beach 1930 House

An old House on the Water in California dating back to 1930. The architecture was redesigned by Ferguson & Shamamian while the interior design was appointed to Michael S. Smith.

“It’s a 1930s ideal of a Malibu beach house,” Michael S. Smith says of the residence he designed for film producer Donna Arkoff Roth in California’s Malibu Colony.

Smith arranged a circa 1750 English chest of drawers in the entrance hall.

Nautical paintings—including a 19th-century oil of a burial at sea—hang in the living room.

“I like beach houses to have layering and depth, not the white-on-white look often associated with them,” notes Smith, who opted for a colorful, casual mix of furnishings and fabrics.

A sunroom—known in Mallibu Colony as a teahouse—serves as the family room.

A sitting area occupies one end of the master bedroom

  7. Hi Kifus,
    amo questa casa... trovo l'esterno e l'interno di una calda accoglienza straordinaria...
