BEFORE&AFTER: DESIGN TRANSFORMATION INSIDE A MID-CENTURY MODERN HOME
Talented designers dramatically remade a Palm Springs, California estate, by updating and refurnishing a sprawling mid-century modern home, which is one of the highlights of the annual Palm Springs Modernism Week.“Mid-century endures” says Christopher Kennedy, the creative force behind the Christopher Kennedy Compound. “Everyone’s pace is so hectic now, that I think that we crave simplicity. For me, midcentury modern is about doing more with less, surroundings ourselves with fewer things but things that have meaning and a connection to the natural environment. These ideas are resonating with many people right now.” Scroll down and see different design transformations that make the case for the continued appeal of mid-century-modern-inspired style!
