Palm Springs – Modernism Week | 2017

Modernism Week Palm Springs / See and Savour
After seeing photos each year of Modernism Week I was excited to be apart of this year’s PS Mod Squad! Modernism Week is the annual event that celebrates and fosters appreciation of mid-century architecture and design. In addition to, contemporary thinking in these fields, by encouraging education, preservation and sustainable modern living as represented in Palm Springs.

Y and I are in the process of looking for a home and let’s just say we had some much home envy this weekend. We both left feeling inspired and excited about finding our dream home. I loved visiting Sunnylands and the Chino Canyon Project. They both couldn’t be more different from each other. Sunnylands is the estate run by The Annenberg Foundation and has served as a vacation home for many celebrities and presidents including President Barak Obama! The Chino Canyon Project are two architectural homes, one based on a never-constructed plan by late midcentury modern architect Al Beadle; the other by esteemed Palm Springs architect Lance O’Donnell, exemplify the very best of midcentury and contemporary modern architecture in Palm Springs.
