Casa Mami8

This Airbnb in the California Desert is Also a Shoppable Design Showroom

Have you ever stayed in an extra-stylish Airbnb and wondered where you might procure, say, the same fluffy towels or the same perfect coffee pourover situation? That’s the idea behind Casa Mami, a rental house in Pioneertown, California that doubles as something of a design showroom. The house was renovated (and documented here with one of those satisfying before-and-after slider mechanisms) by Carlos Naude and Whitney Brown, the married co-founders behind multidisciplinary studio Working Holiday. What was once earth-toned and dated (think Barcaloungers, mini-blinds, and solar panels standing at attention on the roof) now feels modern and intentional, with white-painted exteriors, gray gravel, black trim, and furnishings from 24 brands including Waka Waka, RBW, Hay, Laun, and Fish & Pink, among others, which can all be shopped via Casa Mami’s online store. (We’re especially into the custom Neenineen ceramics.) As a bonus, Casa Mami is also totally off the grid, running off its own solar power, septic and water tanks. Take a peek at the photos below, then click here to book if you’re heading for a (much-needed) winter trip to the desert.
