We spent last weekend in sunny Palm Springs where we were a part of the designer showcase at the Christopher Kennedy Compound sponsored by LUXE Interiors+Design.  First off, let me tell you the town was bumping!  It was crawling with mid-century design lovers all there to take in the art and architecture of Modernism Week.  By the time the event ended, more than 5,000 had walked through the showcase house and couldn’t stop talking about it.

We were honored to be among designers Celerie Kemble, Patrick Dragonette, Trina Turk, Woodson & Rummerfield, Jiun HoTamara Kaye-Honey, Sammy CastroThomas Lavin and of course Christopher Kennedy – who are so incredibly talented and transformed each unique space into something absolutely stunning.

I don’t mean to brag to all of you on the other end of the country who have been frozen over this winter, but our install day was a blazing 90 degrees.  We had a blast cruising in the U-Haul filled with all our goodies for the entrance of the estate.

We were so happy to hear such great feedback about our indoor / outdoor design and want to again thank RAGS Custom FurnishingsHeritage DraperyStray Dog DesignsEdward Lentsch and West Elm.  When we were choosing our blue circle drapery fabric, there was only a limited amount of yardage left so we had to improvise.  In the words of Tim Gun, we had to Make It Work, People!  We chose another fabric in grey and had our talented drapery fabricator, Edgar from Heritage, cut and sew the 2 fabrics together to create the stripe design you see here.  We really think it made the space come together and was everyone’s wow factor.
