Vivid colours, curious patterns and a series of striking material elements combine to produce this rather dazzling mid-century home in Palm Springs.
The sensory overload is palpable throughout, and it starts from the entrance. Nestled amongst a cluster of large rocks, a set of stairs leads to a dark bronze door. Featuring a textured pattern of concentric rings emanating from the door’s circular golden handles, it’s a wonderful riff on the bright sun which dominates the arid environment in which the house sits.
This sun motif is repeated in a couple of other parts of the house: in the starburst-shaped bathroom light, in a couple of ornaments siting on the lounge coffee table, and also in a set of saucer-shaped lights in another bathroom.
The intensity continues throughout the interior, with scarlet red tiles adorning the walls of the shower, a bathroom clad in beautiful creamy brown-patterned marble, and windows that completely expose the house to the outdoors.
All this interior excitement would be enough on its own, but the landscape in which the home sits is equally striking: extreme in its topography, rough, and covered in cacti and other succulents.
