Casa Mami – An Overnight Design Showroom

The husband and wife duo behind the creative studio Working Holiday, couldn’t resist transforming this dusty, brown Pueblo-style home into a vacation rental oasis. Inspired by architect Luis Barragan and interior/furniture designer Terence Conran, they wanted to play with color blocking, round edges and minimalism. The goal was for every interior piece to feel like a sculptural work of art, and what better backdrop than the vast, dramatic desert.

To outfit the home, they decided to partner with over 20 of their favorite furniture, hardware and home decor brands so the guests staying Casa Mami would have the opportunity to experience these goods firsthand and then shop the items directly from the onsite ipad. The La Cantina french doors, the Cloud Sofa By Marcel Wanders for Moooi, Menu lounge chair, Bend Goods dining set, RBW lighting, Vifa speaker, Fish and Pink coffee table, Avocado mattresses and Emtek door hardware make this an elevated desert experience.

Curating their array of partners remotely was no easy task, so staying true to their color scheme and retro minimalism was essential. “Minimalism can be hard to achieve. For example, instead of hanging wall art in every empty space we would lime wash the wall and let that be the art. We feel a decluttered space, declutter the mind” says Brown.

Throughout Casa Mami, that motto is made clear. There’s no overage of seating, tapestries or knick knacks, everything has a purpose.
