Here are some great home design ideas to help us dogs to live and play with less muss and fuss for everybody.

Gayle Plessner and her husband love their dogs, but the sound of the rain on the roof of their home made them lament winter, the season of muddied paws, in 2012.

“I remember thinking that it would be great if we had a mud room for the dogs,” Plessner said. So when the couple decided to remodel their six-bedroom contemporary home in April 2013, Plessner turned a 10-by-12-foot room off the laundry room into a pet zone, adding a water-resistant polka-dot floor and a separate dog door with access to the backyard for Lucy, a 2-year-old golden retriever; Hermione, a 5-year-old pug; and Snoop, a 6-year-old Chihuahua mix.

Plessner was going to eliminate the bathtub in the bathroom adjoining the dogs’ room but instead removed the glass shower doors and made the tub more accessible for bathing them. Designers say more dog owners are considering their pets’ needs when building or remodeling their homes: asking for pooch-friendly spaces, ordering specialized cabinets for pet bowls and food, and adding canine-only showers and tubs. …Continue…

Jerry Buss’ show-stopping  mansion in Playa del Rey recently sold for $5.1 million. The custom Italian-style villa was built in 1998 by the late Los Angeles Lakers owner and billionaire, and it shows. Lakers logos are incorporated in the home’s stained-glass double-door entry, which opens to a rotunda.

If you were to invent a restaurant whose specialties include a cauliflower T-bone, you probably couldn’t do any better than Superba Snack Bar. It occupies what looks like a corrugated shoe box sliced open at one end, a giant version of the dioramas you may have constructed for social studies in fourth grade. Superba is at the heart of its Rose Avenue neighborhood in a stretch of Venice Beach where the fixed-gear bicycles outnumber cars some afternoons and even the elderly seem acquainted with kombucha and Lululemon.

As at nearby Tasting Kitchen and Gjelina, you probably will be drinking Chignin and Frappato instead of Chardonnay and Merlot. Substitutions are politely declined, the menu says, although there is gluten-free pasta if that’s the way you roll, and you will wait for a table unless you are a party of six committing to a tasting menu.

“I felt a creative spirit the first time I walked in this house,” says Rina Welles of the 1921 Santa Monica house that was once home to renowned German playwright Bertolt Brecht. “I liked the energy.” The foursquare house was where Brecht penned “The Caucasian Chalk Circle” and other plays during the 1940s. Today the house is one component in a multigenerational family compound for Welles, husband David Golubchik, her mother, Joanna, and their children, Leah, 10, and Alek, 6.

The home, which has been renovated and complemented by a new addition by Dub Studios, also stands as a success story for preserving cultural landmarks in fresh and inviting ways. From the outset, the couple knew they wanted to keep the character of the Brecht house while adding a wing that would look and feel modern. They also wanted room for living quarters for Welles’ mother.

But adding on to the back of the two-story home would have devoured the substantial backyard, a feature that had originally drawn the couple to the house. “We wanted openness,” said Golubchik, who was born in Kiev, Ukraine, but grew up in Santa Monica. “I fell in love with the property and wanted to encourage my kids to experience outdoor living rather than indoor living.”

I can see why this video went from zero to over 4 million views within a week–it’s fun, fun fun, gots lots of happy dogs, killer song and done up in a high quality production. And the bonus of also having a crazy cat who happily goes swimming in the ocean with the canine party animals. The happy dogs are having a great time with their day at the beach, frolicking and digging in the sand and splashing crazily in the surf. The swimming cat goes by the name of Didga and I hear he evens surfs in another video. This video is perfectly synched to the Pharrell Williams hit song Happy and watching these canines having such a good time will make you happy too.

Finding great ocean front homes in Venice Beach are the Beach Bums real estate agents specialty.

On a recent weekday morning, a Starline tour bus swung open its doors at Fisherman’s Village in Marina del Rey, and Australian tourists Laura Ross and Kate Lund surveyed the scene. The faux maritime shopping center — with eateries and gift shops built around a fake lighthouse — was mostly empty. Many of the trinket shops were barren, their windows dusty, the walls ripped out. The ocean air had long ago turned vibrant red, yellow and turquoise paint to pastels on the dilapidated wooden buildings. “It’s dead,” Ross declared. “This is pretty unexciting.”

The decline of Fisherman’s Village underscores a growing generation gap along the shores of Marina del Rey. Sections of the marina are booming, thanks to an influx of upscale residential and commercial projects over the last decade. But other sections remain trapped in a time warp, hearkening back to an earlier era when kitschy nautical and Polynesian themes were in vogue.
