We got lucky this year that Modernism Week in Palm Springs happened to fall in line with Alexa’s Winter Break schedule so we took the opportunity to do a road trip to Southern California with a tour of the Christopher Kennedy Compound as the finale to our weekend getaway and let’s just say, it did not disappoint!
The 2017 Modernism Week Show House, known as the Christopher Kennedy Compound is a big house at over 6000 square feet, so there are a lot of rooms and spaces to ooh and aah over. With that said, you can see the full story here and here.
Today, I’m sharing my favorite spaces. Alexa absolutely LOVED this house. She’s trying to convince me we need vacation home in Palm Springs. You’ll understand why once you see these spaces.
The entry is a showstopper. So bright and cheerful…so Palm Springs! The yellow front door is everything.
This was the Girl’s Bedroom… what little (or big) girl can resist all these punchy colors? Talk about eye candy!
And when you want to chill with your friends outdoors…how’s this for a cool hangout? The graphic art painted on the pony wall is a great idea, especially if your walls are not in the best condition. It would be a fun, creative way to disguise it!
The master bedroom “cloffice” (closet /office) is total #closetgoals and #officegoals. That tropical leaf wallpaper gives the space extra star quality a la the Beveral Hills Hotel.
This was Alexa’s favorite space. Dubbed the #glamilyroom by Kelly herself, who also designed it, it’s a perfect tween lounge, even if you’re way past your teen years. What makes a design successful is when people can envision how they would live in the space…mission accomplished!
I’m drawn to the details and the steps leading up to the #glamilyroom from the casual pool friendly bar/lounge definitely got my attention. Love the tile work on the curved steps.
Hands down, the absolute best part of the house is the backyard!!! This is an entertainer’s paradise. This back patio is so spacious and has multiple seating areas.
And of course, dining is center stage!
Ready for the piece de resistance?
Boom…your own backyard cabana, what?!!!
Alexa was seriously scoping out this backyard space for her next birthday party. She literally wants me to rent it. It would such a dope venue! For reference, her birthday is in August and she’s had a pool party every year since her 5th birthday so do you see how this just fits right into her plans?
I mean, that view…amazing right?
Here’s where you can get changed for the pool…
Oh, and this is the little bathroom by the pool…
As you can see, there wasn’t anything to dislike about this home. I can’t wait to see what’s on deck for 2018! We had so much fun touring. I hope you had just as much fun living vicariously through me. Despite the wet weather that taunted us during our Palm Springs getaway, we were grateful for a dry day during the tour of #villagolightly.
