We welcomed our latest collection of desert-inspired wares with a shoot on Baja's remote East Cape at a gorgeous, Brutalist-style beach home. The sandy dunes, Cardon cacti and azure ocean served as the perfect complement to our neutral Oaxaca textiles, golden palm basketry, and earth-hued pottery.

Nestled into the hillside of the Punta Gorda mountain, in a remote stretch of southern Baja known as the East Cape lies Casa Sonoma - a modern, brutalist-style beach house created by California duo Rachael and Matt.

Immersed in nature, the home was carefully designed to blend with the desert scenery. The earthy concrete exterior was selected to match the colors of the surrounding terrain. Organic elements of brick, metal, and shou sugi ban wood mimic the muted tones of the landscape, dotted with cacti and desert shrubbery and surrounded by sweeping views of the majestic Sea of Cortez.

Our collection of handwoven textiles - including rugs, throw pillows and oversized lumbar pillows - feature neutral hues and organic shapes.

Inspired by the desert tones and textures at Casa Sonoma, we selected the Sierra Wool Rug to complement the black steel accents, dark wood and stone colors.

The dramatic East Cape landscape - with views of the mountains, sea and desert terrain - entice you to bring the indoors outside. Accordingly, Casa Sonoma was designed to incorporate the outdoor space as a prominent part of the home. The indoor/outdoor kitchen and main living room open completely to the pool area which features ample outdoor seating, a stone fire pit, and and a hot tub.

Our handwoven textiles, earthy hued pottery and serape beach blankets are perfectly suited for indoor-outdoor living.

Featuring: the Hidalgo Throw Pillow; Black Sheepskin Throw; Round Copper Tray; San Borja Serape Blanket; Large Palm Floor Baskets; Oaxaca Smoked Clay Dining Dishes; and Recycled Glassware.

Located adjacent to the pool area is a large, outdoor wood-fired oven to prepare the best of Baja's local bounty, including the daily catch (oftentimes grouper, dorado or yellowtail); organic fruit and vegetables from the nearby farms; and fresh tortillas.

Drawing on the rich ochre hues of the Baja desert flora, and the concrete tones of Casa Sonoma's exteriors, we paired the best-selling Oaxaca Red Clay Cazuela (oven-proof!) with the Baja Clay Snack Bowls, Wooden Serving Spoon and Ivory Oaxaca Hand Towel to complement the outdoor kitchen and the patio’s warm-toned furniture. Together with the Oaxaca Palm Basket (used as an outdoor cactus planter), the scene became a well-rounded reflection of its surroundings.
