Rebekah modified a maple table with wood dowels and added a trestle bottom. The blown glass chandelier was a big purchase. “I took a chance on the bright pinks in the rug and ended up really loving it in this space,” she says. IKEA chairs. “Honestly, by this point, I was kinda running out of money,” she laughs.

“I tiled the powder room by myself. I went for a modern stacked rectangle design that goes two-thirds of the way up the wall,” says Rebekah. “The tropical wallpaper and teak vanity feel very Palm Springs to me, so they felt great for a mid-century bungalow.” Sconces and a mirror with curved corners are the finishing touches.

Rose-gold bed frames with nearly-matching prints of menagerie give Lennon’s bedroom fable-like charm. The pendant is bell-shaped and provides light for bedtime reading. “The wallpaper is from a line called Bungalow, which seemed perfect,” says Rebekah. The wool tufted pillows and carpet are washable.

“That tile-to-wood transition on the bathroom floor reminds me of the ocean’s shoreline where the bubbles meet the sand.”

Hex shapes and angles are everywhere in Rebekah’s ensuite. Above a bathtub shaped in gemstones, the teak honeycomb shelving hangs. Rebekah first printed the tile shapes on paper to design the floor. “I moved them around on the floor until I got the design I liked,” she says. A marble-looking quartz is used as the top of the big-box store vanity. A subtle gold fleck gives the wallpaper a glamorous touch. Display teak shelves in niches (below) are great for display.

“Gardening is easy thanks to the raised beds, greenhouse, two bunnies and a chicken coop!”

Rebekah moved into the house in which the raised beds were already present. “It was fall and they were just popping with kale, herbs and chard. I wasn’t much of a gardener back then,” she admits, but she credits her mother for her newfound skills; fab conditions help, too. Says Rebekah: “The backyard has its own ecosystem. It’s very warm, so it’s really great for growing.”

The small greenhouse provides the perfect environment for tomatoes to thrive. It is only a few steps from your kitchen. The soil is fertilized by chickens and rabbits that live in the yard.
