Rustic Light-Filled Malibu Home

Actor Patrick Depsey (otherwise known as McDreamy) and his wife, Jillian, adapted one of Frank Gehry’s earliest houses into a rustic and light-filled family family home, and I’m in love.  Though I love modern elements in design, I’m ever a sucker for farm tables, exposed wood beams, Moroccan rugs, and a classic airstream. The couple also filled the 5-acre property to the brim with three kids, three dogs, and an “ever-growing menagerie of chickens, miniature donkeys, rabbits, goats, pigs, and one rescued African tortoise.”  The lush backyard is equipped with a broad, flat lawn for soccer games, planting beds for vegetables and flowers, an alfresco kitchen with a pizza oven, a breezy dining area topped by a canopy of woven wicker, and coops, hutches, and other enclosures for the Dempseys’ growing farm.

That kitchen is everything … seriously swooning over the floating butcher’s block, concrete sink and countertops, silver range and hood, and that awesome over-sized chalkboard.

  1. i saw this on and i completely agree with you, it is AMAZING. the kitchen is unbelievable but my favorite aspect is the magical outdoor area {right down to the airstream trailer and menagerie}.
