The structure was completely overhauled by Mycoskie and his wife, Heather, with the help of local design studio Hammer and Spear, which had the task of wrangling all the esoteric items that the couple wanted to include in their house while keeping the place from looking like “a bohemian Colonial Williamsburg.”

No small task. The interior features walls and beams made from salvaged barn siding, a “Native American–themed ceiling,” and a sofa made by covering a steel frame with an old World War II tent. These new items coexist in the house with lots of objects that carry big significance for the couple, like the entry hall flooring, which is made from actual planks from the Coney Island boardwalk (Heather’s grandparents met there). The master bathroom has “rustic Indian doors” and Blake’s office has a desk from Bali—both souvenirs from the couple’s globetrotting. The end result is, somehow, fabulous.
