This three-bedroom European villa in Malibu’s coveted Zuma Beach does not have the gilded look you would expect from a celebrity home, although it was owned by Victoria Secret model Tatjana Patitz. Its more subtle refinery is in a million tiny details throughout the home, like seashells and sea glass worked into a cement bathroom wall.
Two of the homes three bathrooms use smooth stone materials. This one has a beautiful turquoise-blue stone and sunlight from the surrounding windows to complete the natural look.
Smoothed stone was also used to create an elevated platform and steps that descend into the main living area and wrap around into benches along the sides of the room. The use of natural materials and sunlight from floor-to-ceiling windows in the two-story living space add to the home’s laid-back luxury.
The furniture has a similar feel with several ‘French flea market’ pieces, like a weathered patchwork chest of drawers, painted mirrors, and lounge-chair style benches in the dining room. The dining room also has a greenery chandelier, one of the most creative and stand-out projects in the design. The coolest part of this home, however, is that you can actually rent it on AirBNB.
