Bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica won’t be found in actor Rainn Wilson’s rustic Spanish-style hacienda in Southern California, but fans of “The Office” will fall in love with the bohemian home regardless. The actor and his wife, fiction writer Holiday Reinhorn, recently welcomed Architectural Digest into their sprawling abode situated on 5 ½ acres of gardens—one filled with citrus groves and macadamia trees and views of the Pacific Ocean—for an “Open Door” segment. Art in high-ceiling rooms, a dramatic velvet yellow couch, and “The Office” memorabilia are a few standout features. Oh, and did we mention the wooden patio table handcrafted by Nick Offerman of “Parks and Recreation”? 

Dwight Schrute bobbleheads and fan illustrations are a few of the fun elements featured throughout the tour of the rustic yet contemporary interior. Out on the patio, Wilson showed off a wooden table handmade by Offerman and called it one of his favorite possessions. “We used to be old actor friends kind of going up against each other for character roles,” Wilson explained, calling Offerman a master craftsman and woodworker. (Perhaps he isn’t so different from his Ron Swanson persona, after all.) Later, towards the end of the tour, the couple show viewers their pig farm. (It’s no Schrute Farms, but it’s still charming nonetheless.) 

Wilson and Reinhorn’s design tastes are influenced by their travels to places like Morocco and Haiti, with Reinhorn describing their home as “global bohemian.” She told AD, “We didn’t want the house to feel too formal or overly designed. We are two creatives sharing a home, and we wanted it to be a place where we can write and make music and tell stories.” Wilson cited painter and filmmaker Julian Schnabel’s New York home as a reference point. “I’ve been to a lot of fancy houses around the world, but Schnabel’s home is one I’ll never forget,” he said. “I loved the combination of high-classical design and funky iconoclasm.”
