I love to see quirky places and it is true that Venice beach in Los Angeles has its share of colorful and eclectic attractions where it seems like anything over the top is the new normal. Consider this adorable couple who built their dream home all in mosaics – it was a passion done through their lifetime, both creating their stamp of living in this wonderful and quiet neighborhood. I visited the home of Cheri Pann and her husband Gonzalo Duran when I was touring Venice, and it was apparent how their affection and labor of love in creating this magical space was something I definitely had to see in person while exploring Venice.

Here’s a tour of their home and garden
Not only is their love story inspiring but Cheri and Gonzalo made this home together completely on a whim and they have continuously been create art and mosaic is almost every square inch of their home, inside and outside including the outdoor gardens and that’s about the size of a 6,000 square foot lot in total. Initially Cheri made tiles from scratch that Gonzalo broke up and placed in the exteriors and then the garden and before you know it, the entire house was covered.

Outdoor mosaic garden
I particularly loved the exterior spaces and gardens the best – it was filled with ornate seating areas, cave like spaces and huge objects like a spoon door and a giant fortune cookie – everywhere you turned there seems to be a lot of art and objects to look at in this fascinating place.
