House Call: A Stylish Vacation Rental in Joshua Tree
Photography by Kate Sears
Come with us on a tour of a California creative couple's stylishly (and budget-conscious) remodeled Joshua tree house, which is available to rent through Airbnb.
A wood pergola extends out from the entry, connecting the newly painted house to the garden.
Outdoor daybeds are positioned for taking in the landscape and the silence.
Aiming to “bring the house into modern times while holding on to its western charm,” they launched the project by tearing down walls in the living area.
To retain a cabin feel, the couple ambitiously replaced the living area’s popcorn ceiling with tongue-and-groove paneling.
In place of a kitchenette tucked into a closet, the living area now has an open kitchen with a simple white-tiled backsplash.
The countertop is Snowy Ibiza Quartz from Home Depot, the sink, purchased via Wayfair, is Kohler’s Mayfield, and the Delta Trinsic Single-Handle Faucet came from Overstock.com.
The kitchen’s black-and-white enamelware is from Urban Outfitters: $99 for a
16-Piece Starter Set.
Most of the furnishings, including the dining table and chairs, was found at vintage stores in town.
