On Sunday the AIA/LA held its second fall home tour of the year. The first had us weaving through the Hollywood Hills, now come along with Curbed into four houses off Sunset Boulevard in Santa Monica and Pacific Palisades. Today we're going inside a Steven Ehrlich-designed house on the edge of Santa Monica Canyon.
Photos by Elizabeth Daniels Most of the Carrillo House sits along one narrow strip, leading visitors from the street out toward the back of the house and its views into Santa Monica Canyon (and, of course, an infinity pool). On the bottom floor there's a guest bedroom, a small screening area (a projection screen in the ceiling, a flat screen on the half-wall), the kitchen, the stairway, and the dining room. The top floor has the living areas, including the master bedroom, which cantilevers over the back patio. Downstairs a glass-walled living room shoots off sideways from the dining room. There are obviously kids living in the Carrillo, and plenty of dinosaur decals and LEGOs, but mom and dad are not afraid to display some truly killer art and furnishings.
