This Palm Springs Gem Gets A Modern Makeover With A Bohemian Twist

This midcentury modern gem with insane mountain views was meticulously renovated with a bohemian twist. Homeowners from London who fell in love with the Palm Springs area upon their relocation to Southern California rescued what could have been perceived as a tear down and instead brought the home back to life.

As a couture men's fashion show producer, Jade Spalding immediately had a vision of how to transform the home, complete with a softer, less expected, bohemian flare. "I wanted to stay true to the midcentury modern vibe, of course, but also make it my own. I think sometimes, especially in Palm Springs, people can be a bit serious about midcentury design and so they stick to a very in-the-box approach when renovating. I really wanted to have a bit of fun with it and break a few rules! Who says midcentury can't branch out a bit!?"

Although some purists may disagree, you can't argue with the very beautiful, somewhat eclectic, results of her vision. And maybe if a little more fun is invited into the midcentury game, more people just may join in.

What's your opinion? Is there room to have fun with the mid century vibe?

Keeping the original fireplace was very important to the homeowners, but keeping the original brick color was not. They added a fresh coat of white paint and updated the fireplace with a dual wood and gas combo. Photo 3 of This Palm Springs Gem Gets A Modern Makeover With A Bohemian TwistView Photos
