Need some sunny inspiration on a cold winter's day? Check out this Venice beach bungalow renovation project recently profiled in the L.A. Times.

We love the open space, the warm colors, and the unobtrusive recessed lighting. The contemporary pendant light adds some visual pop to the area and is scaled nicely to the room dimensions.

Check out the article, Beach bungalow sprouts a modern addition, and the wonderful photo gallery of the entire project.
