Artist Asa Soltan Rahmati’s Venice Digs

The mysterious lady in the bathtub above is Asa Soltan Rahmati, Iranian artist and co-owner, with her filmmaker partner, of an amazing house in Venice, CA that’s the subject of a recent home renovation story in the LA Times. Soltan Rahmati’s work deals a lot with identity and nostalgia, and I’ve been following her career from afar since I bought this awesome tank top she designed, nearly six years ago. It’s cool to peek into her life/work via this story, too. From the story:

The well-ordered plan doesn’t mean a certain level of chaos doesn’t reign within this home. For this couple, reconciling their personal aesthetic with their architects’ design philosphy meant departing from the sort of tastefully arranged modernist vignettes one might see in a Design Within Reach catalog or Robertson Boulevard storefront. Rather, they spread their vast accumulation of belongings throughout the house in a carefree fashion, a celebration of artful disorder.

To actually get an idea of what that really means, see the photo gallery of their dreamy house.
