Name: Eduardo Valadez Arenas
Location: Fruitvale — Oakland, California
Size: 400 square feet (plus adjacent work studio)
Years lived in: 4 years, renting
After coming to the U.S. from Mexico city, Eduardo settled in Thousand Palms, California, a small desert town just east of Palm Springs. This upbringing in small desert towns throughout California continues to influence his personal style, art aesthetic and home design. At night, a wool Pendleton blanket keeps him warm while showcasing the patterns of the American Southwest he finds so inspiring, and two San Pedro cacti add pops of green. It's these symbols of desert life that surround him in his small Oakland space.
