Two neglected yurts on this 106-acre Santa Barbara, Calif., ranch were converted from neglected storage spaces into glamorous outdoor retreats. Custom canvas walls provide privacy and protection from the elements, while a reclaimed-wood washstand and shower make for comfortable, convenient outdoor living.
A glamorous neutral transitional yurt was outfitted with suspended custom canvas fabrics which act as walls and offer privacy and protection from the elements, making for a comfortable outdoor retreat. A washstand was made from reclaimed wood, while the structure also has one shower and plenty of storage.
On season seven of HGTV Design Star, the contestants were each asked to design a yurt. Contestant Danielle's finished space has a warm, collected feel with a contemporary edge. "She left no area completely unattended to...that's the biggest thing in this room that makes it a success," judge Genevieve Gorder said.
