A midcentury modern home in Palm Springs gets a remarkable update

mid-century-modern-home-exterior

H3K Home+Design is responsible for the brilliant renovation of this midcentury modern home located in Palm Springs, a city in the Sonoran Desert of Southern California. The architects collaborated closely with the owners to bring this 1958 William Krisel-designed retreat back to its midcentury roots while infusing it with the charms of their favorite vacation destination, Guatemala.

 Throughout this home, you will find custom selections, including colors, furnishings, fixtures, and materials. In an almost entirely modern neighborhood, the original home stuck out. A giant stucco wall was originally blocking the entire house before being restored to an attractive midcentury modern design. Note: Scroll to the end of this article to look at the must-see before/after images of this incredible transformation!

What We Love: This vibrant midcentury modern home offers a warm and inviting new design thanks to thoughtful finishes and materials selection. Indoor and outdoor boundaries are blurred thanks to sliding glass doors that extends the interiors to out. On the outside, a desert landscaping fits into the context of the region, adding to the overall curb appeal of this home.

In the living room, the redish-orange chairs are from MJ Custom Furniture. The curved wood chairs are a lucky find from a consignment store in Rancho Mirage. Grounding the space, the area rug is called Nourison Contour – Azure Area Rug from American Carpet Wholesalers.

I can’t say I’m a fan of Mid-century Modern design, but this transformation is really clever. I’m also not brave with colour, but I just love the pops of colour in this home!
