We’re back!! After taking a little break last week it’s time to get down to business! This week we’ll be sharing our latest getaway, and it all started with this beautiful home. The Echo Ranch House is owned by our friends Rainy & Oscar who also own Circa Vintage Rentals. We knew their vacation home would be amazing, as is their stylish rental company! So we asked them to team up with us on our next adventure…
Joshua Tree is a beautiful place none of us had in fact ever visited! For this reason it was the perfect opportunity for a getaway… Of course you’ll have to wait for all of those details later this week. But until then, you’ll just have to read about this hidden bungalow in the dessert. As well as see all of the gorgeous photos by Corrie Lynn Photo.
Keep scrolling to hear more from owners Rainy & Oscar…
After viewing many properties and homes throughout the Hi-Desert, we were drawn to the little town of Flamingo Heights, a gateway community of Joshua Tree. It is nestled perfectly between Joshua Tree and Pioneertown.
The moment we drove on the dirt road leading in to the Ranch, we felt it. We knew that the little bungalow on 6 acres, was where we would lay our hats down and kick off our boots (actually, my Clogs!). After a bit of elbow grease and gallons of paint, it was truly meant for us!
Our personal style is eclectic with a vintage modern twist. We made sure to stray away from the typical “Rustic Desert” design. Instead, we opted to stay true to who we are. We wanted a more clean “Mod Vintage Cali Desert” vibe. Our inspiration was our pristine 1979 vintage sofa. That was our starting point, the rest just fell into place!
The space itself is beautiful, the wraparound windows just off the dining area overlooks the desert valley for miles on end. The view takes you instantly away for just a moment, with a single glance. It is best enjoyed with family and friends, to break bread and share conversations, as any dining table is. Except, here you can spot a Coyote or Jackrabbit crossing the valley while you dine.
Our sources for vintage items were mostly from Estate Sales and the Rose Bowl Flea Market. Newer items such as the rad Rattan Daybed were sourced from Urban Outfitters (that is a favorite from our guests) other shops include Anthropologie, Cost Plus World Market, Target, IKEA and CB2.
It was also important to us to support local and small businesses within our design, items such as the amazing wall hanging in the den (it’s actually a scarf!) from our friends at Bloc Shop and others such as Joinery and local shops within Yucca Valley.
Our little Desert community is growing with options, it’s both amazing and vibrantly weird, we love it that way.
Thank you guys for letting us into your beautiful home and for sharing!!!
Can’t wait to go back to the Echo Ranch House!!!
