Tim Melideo has owned this small-ish desert house for a year. When asked to describe his home in five words or less, his reply was: "Vintage Desert Rock n Roll."
What is your favorite room and why? Although the kitchen is the one room that we really said "YES!" to when it was finished, the living room is where everything happens and it contains most of our little collections and trinkets so it is probably our favorite.
If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? We really want to have a window across the entire top of the wall behind the couch so that even more light can pour in!
What's the last thing you bought (or found!) for your home? We recently got the coffee table from Love Seat vintage in San Diego. We didn't have a coffee table at first because we were looking for the perfect one, and we did!
Tell us a little (or a lot) about your home and the people who live there: Our little home in the desert
Any advice for creating a home you love? Only fill it with things that mean something to you. Don't just get stuff because you "should have it" in your home. Take time to find the right things.
