Describe your space:

We purchased the house a couple years ago, and it needed a complete renovation. Not that it was completely run-down, but it was just so outdated. We envisioned it to be something that someone like Jimi Hendrix, or Mick Jagger would have as their getaway house. We filled it with 95% vintage furnishings that we had acquired from years of road trips and thrifting. We wanted it to feel eclectic and represent us and our adventures.

Did you DIY anything in your space? And, if so, what's your favorite DIY?

We did everything except the electric and most of the floor refinishing.

What's your favorite product that you bought for your space and where did it come from?

We love our dining room table, our rugs, and our cabinets/shelving units. They were all super cheap and found at estate sales, thrift stores, and swap meets. We love that all the stuff in our house is unique to our house and it is a representation of our adventures and aesthetic.

What inspires you?

We love the design of the '60s and '70s, as well as the music from that time.
