Here on Apartment Therapy we love house tours. Seeing how someone else solves their home's challenges in truly inspirational. This week's Los Angeles Times Home and Garden section takes a look at three homes: in the first, a Palm Springs home, mid-century modern gets mixed up to create something fresh and real; a modernist home in Baldwin Hills is gets its design inspiration from Morocco; in Venice, developer Tom Schey proves that living green and living luxuriously can easily go hand in hand. Links to these stories on the Los Angeles Times website, after the jump...

Home Tour: A Palm Springs bungalow gets a mostly (but not totally) mid-modern remodel: If this home is in Palm Springs it must be decorated in mid-century modern right? Not in this case. Design Christopher Kennedy mixes it up to create something new and unexpected.

A 1950s-era modernist house in Baldwin Hills gets a Moroccan redo Filmmaker Chris Paine transformed a 1950s-era modernist home in Baldwin Hills into a Moroccan oasis. And, perhaps surprisingly, it's also green.

Green with bling in Venice: Do you picture living green as spartan, devoid of the sensual pleasures that you dream of when you dream of home? Developer Tom Schey's home in Venice will change your mind.
