Desert Wild was built from the ground up with balance and contrast driving the creative process, but always keeping the magic of the Mojave Desert in mind. By contrasting old world materials and techniques, such as tadelakt and 100 year old Turkish sinks, with cutting edge materials, such as Topciment, a balance was achieved that feels warm and inviting. The artistry of the different trades was vital in achieving what the designer was trying to bring to life. From local artists to apply the tadelakt and build the cabinetry and furniture, to specialists flown in from France to complete the Topciment floors and kitchen counters, this was truly a labor of love. Inspiration came from travels around the world and the US, specifically Morocco, Greece, Spain and New Mexico. Georgia O'Keeffe's Ghost Ranch in New Mexico was of particular importance and helped inspire the Zen-like simplicity of the design. Contrasting feminine and masculine lines was given particular importance, most obvious at the entrance of the home. The desert landscape creates a stark background so the color palette is warm, neutral and simple that changes with the colors of the desert throughout the day. This helps to achieve a very calming and magical vibe that compliments the mysterious and beautiful Joshua Tree area. We are opening Desert Wild for photoshoots. We are located on 1.25 acres and we do have neighbors.

Louis could not have been more kind and welcoming! We loved the house so much, it’s even more beautiful in person and we will definitely be back because even within an hour and a half photoshoot we still didn’t get to do all the shots we wanted with how many amazing areas there are.

Desert Wild was beautiful and a perfect backdrop for our shoot! Load-in was easy, home was clean and everything ran smoothly. Only complaint is that the address listed is not correct so we showed up at the wrong home - I'd advise to change on Peerspace.
