Partners Dave Reiss, Carol Ann, and Moí¯se Emquies recently opened Salt Air, a seafood restaurant located in the beachy heart of Venice in LA. Carol Ann, founder of Blinken Interiors, and Brett Witke co-designed the bistro using a white palette and giving the space a breezy, Scandi-style interior that perfectly lives up to its name. Just add a platter of oysters.
