You may remember The Wanderess’s stay at their ever-popular Cactus Mountain Airbnb, but now I want to transport you to their newest hacienda, an affordable Airbnb for architecture aficionados, The Geodome.The Wanderess Has Your Next Airbnb All Lined Up, An Architectural Destination On A Budget!

Its structure was one I couldn’t fathom existing within the world of straight, conservative lines. Further, it was home to the stars, and that amazed me. Fast forward to a month ago, me still barefoot and chasing the stars, needing a blast of creative inspiration, but not having the funds to go very far. We packed up the pick-up truck and sought out nature as our muse. Into the desert, we went. You can only imagine my delight to spend a night in the quaint geodesic structure that is The Geodome. An aesthetic sanctuary amongst the yucca trees — this is the Joshua Tree locale you’ve been waiting for: still off the beaten path, and right in your budget. Displaying that eye for design and style Tienlyn is so well known for, the accommodation is stocked with everything you could want from cozy kitchen to outdoor lounge-space and even a bocce ball court. The A.C. is on high when you need a hideout from the heat. Joshua Tree holds so much mystic for so many already, and this addition is a diamond in the rough desert terrain. Book the Geodome here on Airbnb, and you can finally tick “sleep in a geodesic structure” off your bucket list.

What Happens When Two Friends Bond Over Bones & Go Into Business Together? A Cult Jewelry Line is Born

What Happens When Two Friends Bond Over Bones & Go Into Business Together? A Cult Jewelry Line is Born -- VERITE PUBLISHED --- Bones + Feathers Collective, Instagram, LA Designer, Women in Business, Interiors, Bohemian, Modern, Architecture, Nature.

How many times have you been sitting across from your BFF, glass of wine in hand, exclaiming “we could totally start a business”? Countless. Those are give or take the plot-lines of how Cole Morrall and Natalie Mauro found themselves knee deep in refined eclectic jewels — a line called Bones + Feathers Collective. One collaborative idea was to spark a career of crafting beautifully delicate designs inspired by natural elements.

Vérité visited the co-founders up in the winding hills of Highland Park, Los Angeles, to dig through said jewels, and a little bit of background of the balance between a successful friend/work relationship. More so, we were dying to peel back the layers of who these two are as a duo, and apart.

What Happens When Two Friends Bond Over Bones & Go Into Business Together? A Cult Jewelry Line is Born -- VERITE PUBLISHED --- Bones + Feathers Collective, Instagram, LA Designer, Women in Business, Interiors, Bohemian, Modern, Architecture, Nature.VÉRITÉ: Tell us what Bones and Feathers Collective is…

NATALIE & COLE: An LA based jewelry line drawing inspiration and materials from nature. We design for the girl that wants something unique and feels one of a kind at a more affordable price.

V: How did you two meet, what was the catalyst to join forces in business?

NATALIE: We actually went to the same college and graduated the same year, but didn’t meet until a mutual friend introduced us out in LA. This girl that I’d met kept telling me that I should meet her roommate. I was reading a book on serial killers at the time and Cole was reading a book on decomposing bodies, and she thought that we’d get along. When we met, it was kind of creepy love at first sight and we’ve been friends ever since.

We started B+FC while I was assisting a clothing designer. He told me I could sell accessories at his booth during market week. I asked Cole if she wanted to start a line and she responded, “Yes, we can make things out of bones and feathers.” We never ended up making anything out of feathers or selling accessories at market week for him, but we liked the sound of it, so we kept the name and started a businessWhat Happens When Two Friends Bond Over Bones & Go Into Business Together?

V: Where do you both gain inspiration for what you create?

NATALIE & COLE: Nature, art, photography, shape, color, architecture.

V: Getting into business with a friend can be tough, how do you two keep things smooth? What would you suggest to others who want to do the same?

NATALIE: We are both really good at balancing each other out and get along really well. Like all relationships, it’s about communication, we definitely have our moments, but if someone feels strongly about something we are both open to hearing each other’s thoughts and ideas out. We also have defined roles and make sure we are clear about who  has what responsibilities.What Happens When Two Friends Bond Over Bones & Go Into Business Together?

V: Can you give us a little insight into the process of creating a new collection?

COLE: It varies. We have started new collections by  making shapes with clay, finding textures and shapes in nature, or being inspired by furniture and home architecture. We then start sketching and water coloring, choo se a color pa lette of stones and shapes  we want to work with and then go into CAD and sourcing the proper stones. It can be a long process but its so worth it when it all comes together. The end product sometimes turns out differently then expected but its usually something we love.

V: If you both could identify a work uniform what would you say is yours?

NATALIE: black jeans, black boots, black shirt and a really good coat (preferably leather or vintage wool) .

COLE: Same… except silk shirt. I’m also a sucker for white dresses.What Happens When Two Friends Bond Over Bones & Go Into Business Together?

NATALIE: Madrid or Paris.

COLE: Oh thats a tough one, probably a blend of NYC, Kauai, and Atrani.

V: In a world where we are inundated with so many brands via social media, what would you say is your key to standing out from the crowd?

NATALIE: I’m not really sure that we have one to be honest. We just try to be ourselves and post things that we are inspired by, its really the only way for us to stay true to the brand.What Happens When Two Friends Bond Over Bones & Go Into Business Together?

NATALIE: Cole’s generosity and diplomacy/understanding in all life situations.

COLE: Nat’s willingness to try new things and learn from them. She’s always pushing herself to be a better version of herself, it’s inspiring and a good reminder to do the same.What Happens When Two Friends Bond Over Bones & Go Into Business Together?

V: What’s a book that’s changed your life?

NATALIE: You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay or A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson. They’ve both completely rewired my brain in the best possible way and changed my outlook/ approach to  life.

COLE: That’s like naming a favorite child! I love anything F. Scott Fitzgerald. Born to Run — it really changed the way I understood running as a part of my life. The Presence Process — the writing isn’t the best but the message is amazing and really helped get in to meditation.
