california dreamin’: patrick dempsey’s malibu home

Let’s go back to 2005.  Grey’s Anatomy was one of the hottest new shows on TV, and millions tuned in each week for their dose of drama in the OR.  And of course, everyone remembers Patrick Dempsey, who played Dr. Derek Shepherd (aka McDreamy).   Although many have left their obsession with Dempsey in the past, there is definitely a lot to crush over in his simple yet enchanting Malibu home.

Tin House - Originally Designed by Frank Gehry - Architectural Digest

Featured in Architectural Digest, this is one of architect Frank Gehry’s earliest homes.  A studio combined with a private residence, this dwelling was originally designed for an artist, long before Gehry was recognized in the architectural world.  Its structure boasts the bones of the 1960’s with an updated and renovated interior.

I’m loving all the natural elements.  It just feels so comfy and inviting.  And the fireplace log storage as a focal point = genius.
