A guest space above the garage mimics the scenes
found in the main house, but with a hipper spin.
home of distinction
Parallel to the main house is the studio
above the garage used to accommodate guests.
A funkier take on Vega’s distinct style, it fea-tures
orange and yellow furniture, eccentric tiles
and pottery with a telescope at the window.
“Everywhere we travel, we try to get some-thing
from every place. There’s some up here,
and on the bookshelf. We found pottery in
Asheville. I love the natural and raw look,”
A wide-reaching courtyard and garden join
the two structures. Lounge chairs and ham-mocks
surround a rectangular saltwater pool
in the middle of the courtyard; the trees above
have the feel of a mini-forest, making it the per-fect
summer escape from the coast’s July heat.
Stylistically, each corner of the home came
directly out of Vega’s imagination — a three-dimensional
vision she had in her head, cour-tesy
of combing ideas she likes with surfing
Pinterest boards to fill in the cracks.
“That’s kind of what this house is. The house
that Pinterest built,” she says.
