Interior tastemakers list their Topanga Canyon home

In their book, Abode: Thoughtful Living with Less, Serena Mitnik-Miller and Mason St. Peter reveal how to create natural, simple spaces, attainable even for new DIYers and those on a budget. … or you can skip the learning curve and purchase their home that just hit the market in Topanga Canyon.

The interior tastemakers purchased their 1927 cabin as a fixer-upper. “When we first stepped over the threshold of our Topanga home, it was so dark and masculine-feeling, it was like entering a cave — a cave with kelly-green laminate counters, ceiling joists painted cherry red, and a kitchen with two contrasting patterns of linoleum.”

Slowly but surely they added their stamp of “California cool, and a certain kind of not-trying-too-hard but bright and edited aesthetic” to transform all 1,426 square feet of living space into a warm bohemian cabin.

Offering two-bedrooms and one-bathroom the home has a “pared-down purity” and warm minimalist aesthetic. Features include skylights and clerestory windows filling the interior with tons of natural light, framed by wood-beamed trusses, and a marble and marine-grade Douglas fir plywood kitchen as the centerpiece of the open living space.

Both bedrooms maintain the calming neutral color palette of the home, with windows peeking out to the lush, verdant and fragrant landscaping surrounding it. Listed for $1.199 million, 1104 Canyon Trl is perhaps the best creative sanctuary or weekend respite from the city.
