Been meaning to blog about this private home at 26th and California in Santa Monica–but I’m rather a Johnny-come-lately (do people still use that phrase?)
The Santa Monica Mosaic House belongs to Louise and Aziz Farnam, who moved in when they immigrated from Iran in 1979. They raised six children here–but the house sat quietly, unnoticed and downright nondescript until 2002.
That’s when Louise started creating the mosaics, after participating in a craft class at her son’s school. Aziz jumped on the ceramic bandwagon very quickly so tiling the house with tiles they cut and placed themselves has been a joint effort.
