A Dose of Dempsey
Today I was feeling inspired. And I still watch Grey’s Anatomy. What do these two things have to do with each other?
It’s bright, sunny and climbing towards a high of 72 today (…sorry to my east coast peeps who are still snowed in!)
This bright new day inspired me to actually take a minute and browse through the latest issue of Architectural Digest this morning (truly a feat for me these days), and I was instantly in love with the Malibu home of McDreamy himself, Mr. Patrick Dempsey.
Yes, I still watch Grey’s Anatomy (…and love it, so don’t judge). And much like the drama rich story lines of the show (ahhh….love the soapy goodness!), this amazing property has an interesting backstory, too. It was originally designed by none other than Frank Gehry. Of course that was back in 1968 when he was just at the beginning of his career. But the structure (originally designed as a work/residence for artist Ron Davis), still has that amazing Gehry quality that’s both fearless and playful in its design.
The Dempsey’s (with help from interior designer, Estee Stanley and landscape designer, Scott Shrader) brought an earthy, modern warmth to the “tin house”, complete with exterior gardens and chicken coops. It’s an aesthetic that’s beautiful to look at and completely livable.
I mean, I could totally live there.
McDreamy would just be a bonus…
Obsessed with this room…
…and this pool. I mean. Seriously.
What do you think?
Could you live in this modern, rustic awesomeness?
