House Tour

Name: Lisa Bush, owner of Mona Moore, and Scott Vineberg, business designer
Location: Topanga Canyon, Los Angeles, California
Size: 3,000 square feet
Years lived in: 6 years

When I first found Lisa and Scott's super cool industrial space in the hills of Topanga, I knew I just had to photograph their home. Then as we were talking, Lisa mentioned that Barbara Bestor designed the house for them. I was completely sold! It is a very modern industrial home, where the exposed steel frame becomes a kind of art and the landscape and views are a part of the design.

What I found really interesting about Lisa and Scott's decor choices is that they live with what they love instead of following design rules. How about a floral sofa in a home with concrete floors? I approve! And if the architecture and the view aren't enough, their artwork really completes the space. There is a major story behind the painting of the man in the living room — anyone know who he is? All in all, cool couple, fantastic house, stunning view — all making me consider Topanga Canyon as a new Sunday hangout.
