Haute Moroccan Style—in Venice Beach

Julie Carlson June 11, 2012

To be filed under "Only in LA": a Moroccan riad, located just off the main drag of Abbot Kinney. Peripatetic fashion photographer Philip Dixon was inspired by his travels when he dreamed up this 6,000-square-foot house, surrounded by shallow pools and gardens of cacti and succulents. The walled compound would look right at home in the deserts of Morocco.
