Project Reveal: 70s Sackley

After a Seattle-based couple bought a Modernism Week Featured Home, renovated by my pals Jackie and Dee Ann from Thomboy Properties, they immediately called in my firm to make it their own.

They had been on their home search for over 2 years and had toured many hundreds of homes.

The minute this property hit the market, on one of the best streets in the historic Indian Canyons neighborhood, they knew they had to act fast. They hopped on a plane, flew to Palm Springs, toured the house, and made an offer.

The house was built in 1979. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and is 3150 square feet.

I hope you enjoy this tour!



We created a glamorous entry with just a touch of Moroccan flair. A shagreen console from our retail shop mingles effortlessly with a vintage lamp and Murano glassware. Mirror from Anthropologie.

In the hallway adjacent to the entry, a wall-mounted metal console and shelf create a dramatic moment.


Living Room

For the living room, a custom 13' long sofa is covered in durable Crypton fabric and sits on a natural fiber rug. Our client requested that patterned fabrics be kept to a minimum, so we focused on mixing textures and numerous shades of blush and pink. The lamp and coffee table are vintage.

Swivel chairs allow for easy conversation and entertaining.

The husband's reading chair, next to the fireplace and window, features a leather chair by Pottery Barn.


Bar + Lounge

This is a vacation home, after all, so our clients were definitely drawn to its generous wet bar and lounge area! The room is anchored by wallpaper from Fliepaper, around which we layered an eclectic mix of furnishings.

Our team designed and built a custom sectional in a midcentury style. Leather counter stools by West Elm.

Dimensional wall tile serves as a glamorous and durable accent underneath the bar counter.

My team and I scoured the internet for midcentury Moroccan-inspired coffee tables.

Main Bedroom + Bath

Our client, who under normal circumstances travels weekly for work, requested a soft and serene main bedroom that would serve as luxurious place to recharge.

She was admittedly nervous, at first, about the 72" tall headboard. But with 9' ceilings, and a husband who is 6'4", she trusted my advice and now understands that the bed is perfectly to scale!

We installed wall-to-wall draperies and sheers for a luxurious fine-hotel feel. The draperies offer the option for complete blackout, important in a vacation home. The sheers feature a subtle midcentury breeze block pattern.

Handmade wallcovering by Phillip Jeffries creates just enough pattern in the room and added layer of textural behind the velvet headboard.

Although the house was "flipped" and renovated for the sale, the main bathroom tiles were not to our client's taste. We helped to customize the bathroom to her taste and coordinated the work over the summer.

New tiles add a subtle exotic vibe to an otherwise contemporary bathroom.


Backyard + Pool

We created a sumptuous backyard featuring multiple seating areas, a BBQ island, and blush-colored umbrellas.

The resort-style backyard is the perfect place for our clients, both busy executives, to relax and unwind.

We will be sharing more details and photos of each room over the coming weeks, so be sure to check back.
