SSS room at the Christopher Kennedy Compound

bedroom-2-640cIt’s Modernism Week this week in Palm Springs and the entire city is a flutter with design events, architectural tours, lectures, and parties. I was so thrilled to be a part of it this year by designing one of the rooms for the Christopher Kennedy Compound Show House, which has been coined the “#1 must see Event of Modernism Week” by the Hollywood Reporter. I introduced you to the project a few weeks ago (here) but if you missed it, each year Christopher re-images a Palm Springs property by bringing together about 20 of the country’s prominent design talents and assigning each one with their own room. This year the house was the HUGE (I’m talking 6,500 square foot) home of Kelly Lee a.k.a. Kelly Go Lightly and I got to design the East Guest Bedroom.

It was a slightly harrowing feat, installing our room and coordinating deliveries etc among 19 other designers doing the same but it all came together just in the nick of time. If you followed my instastory, you know I was re-upholstering a bench 2 hours before the cocktail party preview and the giant mirror was delivered during the preview party. Rupe and I, + a CK handyman, installed it mid-event while dressed in our cocktail attire. NBD.

But now I am thrilled to show you the space!

Villa Golightly RenderingHappy Weekend!

I am so thrilled to share that I am going to be designing the East Guest Bedroom of this years TCKC Modernism Week Show House! Each year The Christopher Kennedy Compound takes over one Palm Springs property and brings together a handful of the country’s top design talents and tastemakers to give it one heck of a makeover, and I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it.

Modernism Week is an annual event that celebrates midcentury modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture. It’s a week full of home tours, parties, and events that celebrate design in Palm Springs. You may remember from a few years back I was on the “mod squad“, instagramming my heart out through it all.  Modernism Week is also charitable organization, providing scholarships to local students pursuing educations in the fields of architecture and design; as well as supporting local efforts to preserve modernist architecture throughout the state of California.

Earlier this year, before construction had even started, I stopped by to see the space and I have to say I sure wouldn’t mind this being my backyard!
