When my longtime friend, Jessica Knutson, hired me to assist her with Scottsdale, Arizona home, I quickly packed my bag and headed south. Even though she had me at 'Arizona', I was even more intrigued when she told me that she was considering renting it out as an Airbnb. After a few brief trips to the always-sunny state, the result was a beautiful space that would make anyone want to extend their vacation.

There are approximately 1,740 miles between Kayla Benning's hometown of Antler, North Dakota (Population 27), and her current home in Palm Springs, California. As a 2005 NDSU Interior Design grad, Benning spent eight years working as a designer in the Fargo-Moorhead area, before jetting off to La Jolla, California. Here she could pursue her dream of waking up at the beach and working remotely on projects in both North Dakota and San Diego. After two years of beachside bliss, Benning relocated to Palm Springs where she embraced the Mid-century modern vibe and traveled the world, gathering global inspiration. Near-perfect climates and picturesque facades aside, her small town roots run deep. After six years away, Benning is now splitting her time between the two states, with plans to bridge the design gap and expand her expertise. With an enlightened appreciation for the prairie, Benning has found a way to elevate her design, merging her Scandinavian and Norwegian heritage, rural and urban lifestyles, and Mid-century modern style.
