Happy Hues Bring Rebekah Higgs’s mid-century Home to Life

Rebekah took a homely maple table and made it mod with a trestle base tricked out with wood dowels. The blown-glass chandelier was a splurge. “I took a chance on the bright pinks in the rug and ended up really loving it in this space,” she says. The chairs are IKEA. “Honestly, by this point, I was kinda running out of money,” she laughs.

“I tiled the powder room by myself. I went for a modern stacked rectangle design that goes two-thirds of the way up the wall,” says Rebekah. “The tropical wallpaper and teak vanity feel very Palm Springs to me, so they felt great for a mid-century bungalow.” Sconces and a mirror with curved corners are the finishing touches.

Rose-gold bed frames with nearly-matching prints of menagerie give Lennon’s bedroom fable-like charm. A bell-like pendant brings light for bedtime reading. “The wallpaper is from a line called Bungalow, which seemed perfect,” says Rebekah. The tufted pillows are wool and the carpet is washable.

“That tile-to-wood transition on the bathroom floor reminds me of the ocean’s shoreline where the bubbles meet the sand.”

Hex shapes and angles are everywhere in Rebekah’s ensuite. The teak honeycomb shelving hangs above a gemstone-shaped tub. Rebekah designed the floor by first printing out the tile shapes on paper. “I moved them around on the floor until I got the design I liked,” she says. The big-box store vanity is topped with a marble-looking quartz. Wallpaper with a subtle gold fleck imparts a touch of glamour. Teak shelves in a niche (below) are ideal for display.

“Gardening is easy thanks to the raised beds, greenhouse, two bunnies and a chicken coop!”

When Rebekah bought the house, the raised beds were already there. “It was fall and they were just popping with kale, herbs and chard. I wasn’t much of a gardener back then,” she admits, but she credits her mother for her newfound skills; fab conditions help, too. Says Rebekah: “The backyard has its own ecosystem. It’s very warm, so it’s really great for growing.”

Tomatoes thrive in the protected warmth of the small greenhouse, only a few steps from the kitchen. Rabbits and chickens in the yard help keep the soil fertilized.
