Rustic-modern Mill Valley Bungalow by Dehn Bloom Design
This fabulous Mill Valley bungalow was remodeled by designer Allison Bloom of Dehn Bloom Design in Mill Valley, California. Interior design was not originally a career for the designer, but she soon learned she had a creative knack for it when in 2007, her family relocated from Los Angeles to the Bay Area. “This area was first used by the Miwok Indians as a place to gather. Later, it was a ranch with farmhouses,” said Bloom. “I did a lot of research about what was here and what the dwellings looked like.” The exterior of the home is clad in stucco and cedar, the interior features natural fabrics and distressed wood flooring that was salvaged from a Midwestern sewing machine factory, which gives the home history. The style of the home has been described as rustic modern, respecting the past but adding a splash of fun.
