It started out as a hunt for a weekend spot. But when Alison and Jay Carroll saw property in Wonder Valley, California — a small community of artists and musicians in the Mohave Desert — they decided to leave behind their house in L.A. and take to the desert full time. The couple is the design duo behind Wonder Valley, an olive oil brand, shop and studio. And this 1951 Vagabond Trailer, nick-named "Big Blue," is where they lived while they renovated their new house in the desert. The trailer is a total labor of love: They replaced the plumbing, installed the floors and built the bed, couch and cabinets themselves.
