7. As director of Workplace—A New York-based design firm known for hospitality projects like the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn and the Rivertown Lodge in Hudson — Robert Highsmith knows a thing or two about creating a welcoming and thoughtful space. Its three 1852 Colonial Rooms in Gallatin, New York, have been remodeled and furnished “to be just enough, leaving the emphasis on the historic aspects of the house: original floors, windows and clapboards,” explains Highsmith. Its design decisions allow clients to connect with “the sense of belonging that the architecture of the region offers,” he adds.

8. Web designer and illustrator Sara combs created the Joshua Tree House with her husband, Rich Combs, much like a “side crush” who took some big steps. This two bedroom SoCal rental, located just 10 minutes from the west entrance of Joshua Tree National Park, has become a kind of brand in itself. It even spawned two derivative locations, Joshua Casita’s tree and the hacienda of Joshua Tree.

9. Beatrice Valenzuela– who designs shoes, clothing and jewelry for his eponymous brand – has teamed up with his partner, Ramsey Conder, to design the interiors of this renovated 1930s bungalow in Los Angeles’ Echo Park neighborhood. Like its own collection, the space is carefully uncluttered but woven with pops of colors, patterns and natural, textured materials that give the space a pleasant warmth.
