NEIGHBORHOOD: Joshua Tree
This mid-century, ranch-style home was built in 1962. A recent restoration by Los Angeles-based design studio Mini Inno transformed this desert sanctuary into a Japanese-inspired retreat. The saltwater soaking tub, outdoor firepit (pure magic at night), tea room, and cactus garden are imperfectly perfect, in line with the wabi-sabi aesthetic that anchors the property. But, before thinking you’ll spend all your time soaking and stargazing outside, the pared-back white walls and warm wood interiors are so soothing and functional you’ll want to cook in the kitchen and read from every comfy corner before (reluctantly) heading home with a bevy of interior upgrade ideas…we did.
