Every Room is a Playroom

Meredith and Jesse Alexander’s laid-back 1946 bungalow in Santa Monica, CA, doesn’t take itself too seriously. It's a kick-off-your-shoes kind of place where sons Monty (left) and Simon (next to his brother) can eat anywhere they can carry food. "Nothing is precious or too expensive, because the boys wear things down," says Meredith, who runs Milk + Bookies, a nonprofit organization that promotes childhood literacy. The family’s mixed-breed rescue, Molly, loves the bright colors, too.
