The Vibe: This hand-built structure vibrates with a discerning DIY frequency. The owner/photographer is a dynamo of design and can do energy. Transforming the original woodpile into walls, doors, windows and floors – this dwelling feels hand-crafted and organic. The Wilder is tucked into the well-protected counterculture enclave that is Bolinas, a hard-core boho paradise of unpaved roads and gentle longboard waves.
The Details: Exteriorly, the simple modular structure is shrouded in dark slate shingles which already have a sea salt kissed patina. Interiorly, a whitewashed, loftlike oasis has a casual indoor-outdoor flow so, according to the photographer, you can “come through the back gate, drop your board, rinse off your wetsuit, and leave everything outside.” The decor echos the integrity of the indigenous structure. Earthy textiles, Moroccan rugs, original artwork, woven baskets and raw edges season the space with an air of humility. Like a big warm blanket on a cold night, this inviting home snuggles and soothes.
The Scoop: This home is also an office, AKA heaven on earth for fellow photographers. An expansive open layout allows for buckets of unfiltered light to pour through carefully positioned doors, vast windows, and bounce off the clean, white backdrop walls. Let your creative team go Wilder.
