    Pop’s colorfully bold bad girl, Ke$ha, has just shocked everyone and bought a very vanilla Venice bungalow.

    The artist with the dollar sign in her name dropped $1.65 million of her own dollars for a pristine 1925 Spanish bungalow in a primo Venice Beach location.

    Who knew the edgy singer would be into vintage details? Her new home has oodles of them, including arched entryways and hardwood floors. The throwback details are combined with modern amenities, including an updated kitchen with Italian marble counter tops, new stainless steel appliances, a brand new master bath, dual paned windows and central AC.

    From a very romantic and feminine master suite, French doors lead to a secluded backyard, featuring an outdoor fireplace and arbor-covered hot tub.

    Ke$ha can now entertain to her heart’s desire on the side-to-back spanish-tiled patio and cook on the built-in outdoor kitchen.

    A one-car garage has been used as an artist studio/office by it’s previous owner.

    Kesha rose to fame in 2010 with the release of her first album, which spun out multiple number-one hits. She’s had a bumpy road in the last few years, including a stint in rehab. With the purchase of her new Venice retreat, she has a calm and serene place to call home.

    Matthew Irmas of Partner’s Trust Beverly Hills represented the sellers and Kesha’s real estate agent was Peter Lorimer of Peter Lorimer Group Estates.

            Rachel Ashwell, the famous interior designer and creator of well-loved Shabby Chic home decor brand has just purchased a brand new cottage home in the heart of Venice, CA. It’s more Chic than it is Shabby, with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and office and artist’s studio with walls of windows looking out onto a lush and colorful garden. Very true to the Shabby Chic brand, the home has an inviting white exterior and a white picket fence. The interior is bathed in pastels and features well-worn fixtures. No doubt Ashwell will take this tiny Venice treasure and bathe it in her signature home decor style of beautiful imperfection.

            When it comes to her home style, Ashwell says, “my thoughts about decorating are that a home can be truly lived in and still be lovely. I believe in cozy relaxed settings where kids are free to put their feet on the sofa and guests can place their cups on the coffee table without a care. For me, the secret to living well is to surround myself with beautiful things that are practical and deliciously comfortable.”

            Her new Venice cottage is just two blocks to Abbot Kinney, dubbed “the coolest block in America” by GQ magazine. This home is storied in the Venice area, as it’s been a stop on The Venice Garden Tour, The Venice Art Walk and even gained national recognition in numerous home decor and cottage magazines.

            If you were concerned that Ashwell wouldn’t have enough rooms to decorate in this tiny cottage, never fear. She also owns another Los Angeles-area home. She purchased a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3,276 square foot home in October 2007 for $4.15M.

            Not too Shabby.
