Touted as last year’s’ “#1 must –see event for the Palm Springs Modernism Week 2014” by The Hollywood Reporter…the 2015 Christopher Kennedy Compound, Modernism Week Show House does not disappoint.
The Christopher Kennedy Compound is a spectacular mid-century home that has been transformed to create a quintessential Palm Springs classic. Kennedy and a team of select designers working with approximately 30 world-class corporate sponsors have perfectly blended nostalgic elements from the mid-mod era with rich contemporary design details.
Located at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains on the Indian Canyons golf course, earth tones, luscious greens, and blue skies are represented in a cool palette gracefully washing gently across the home…at once inspiring a fresh feel while taking advantage of its natural surroundings. Colorful pieces of artwork become visual focal points of interest to further accent the homes clean lines.
Timeless features and creative details mix effortlessly with fine furnishings, antiques, interior and exterior decorative components inviting guests into its relaxed environment. Surprises abound such as the angelic sculpture artfully peeking from the dining room corner and the unexpected swirl of butterflies charmingly poised on the ceiling in the Master Closet. The collection of lavish objects d’art, opulent metallic accessories, and sumptuous fabrics are scattered strategically from room to room, capturing the essence of luxurious resort living.
The latest technology adds a touch of elegance that isn’t overtly overpowering. High performance appliances, lighting fixtures and home automation “smart tools” have been employed to excite and make managing equipment easy.
Multifaceted outdoor living spaces give attention to freedom of movement and become elaborate, yet tranquil retreats to soak up the natural landscape. Check out the artfully crafted outdoor shower, the welcoming fire-pit to gaze at the stars, and the patio lounge areas offering a comfortable escape.
The homes sophisticated aesthetic embodies mid-century modern tradition and expresses an appreciation for style, function, and preservation. Take a tour of this splendid home and immerse your senses in a true mid-mod experience as well as a cornerstone of Modernism Week 2015. The Christopher Kennedy Compound Show House tour schedule runs February 14 – 22, 2015 and information may be found at www.thechristopherkennedycompound.com.
