de la Vega took a hands-on approach to the design, picking up a welding class to tackle the construction of many of the furniture and structural elements - and she was careful to use mostly salvaged and repurposed items during the remodeling process. The blending of industrial pieces, such as the metal lockers, juxtaposed with the natural wood ceilings, brings touches of what the space once was into play, while still maintaining an incredibly homey feel.
Displayed above the daybed in the sitting room area are pillows featuring images of de la Vega’s father’s architectural sketches. Sold individually, the Dream House Pillows come in a plexiglass shadow box and are able to be purchased by contacting the artist directly via her website, michelledelavega.com.
Thanks to Calfinder for featuring this gem of a home!
