Palm Springs – Modernism Week 2016

Happy Tuesday, my friends! I hope everyone has been having a wonderful March! Walker and I have been busy moving into our new place (updates soon!), getting settled, and hosting his wonderful parents for a week. It has been a whirlwind of a month, but the moving process is finally over, and we got to celebrate our new place with family. It doesn’t get much better than that!

During the packing process, I got to escape the madness for a few days and go to Palm Springs to help Michael install his room at the annual Modernism Week Showcase House. Last year, Michael designed the front patio. This year, Michael Berman Limited designed the hub of the house, the huge living room! The installation was a blast, and (though I may be biased) I think Team Berman knocked it out of the park bringing Michael’s designs to life! Here are a few photos taken by Laure Joliet of our space:

There are several more pictures of the entire experience on my Instagram as well. I will happily share more photos once they are available. It was a very exciting project, and I am so grateful to have been a part of it as a member of Team Berman!

Palm Springs – Modernism Week

Happy Friday! I was lucky enough to be invited to spend most of the past week in Palm Springs to help on a design installation for the 2015 Modernism Week Showcase House: The Christopher Kennedy Compound. Michael Berman (the designer I work for) designed the outdoor terrace and pool area for the showcase house. The installation went very well, and we were really pleased with the way it came out! Michael used the Luna Collection, an outdoor furniture collection he designed for Brown Jordan, in a super fun bright green to give the pool area a happy, colorful Palm Springs feel. Here are a few photos taken by Eric Lynch of our terrace:

We enjoyed celebrating all of our hard work, and then I snuck back to LA for the weekend to spend Valentine’s Day with my handsome hubby!

Valentine

After a wonderful weekend of relaxation, amazing food, and Best In Show (I have the best valentine ever!), I headed back to Palm Springs on Monday. We had some amazing projects in progress that we needed to work on, so we had a (very productive!) team design pow-wow in Palm Springs until Wednesday morning.

During both visits, I was lucky enough to stay at Michael’s AMAZINGLY STUNNING Palm Springs home. I am telling you, photos do not do it justice! Every inch of the place is beyond gorgeous, but in true Michael fashion, it is casual and comfortable enough to really enjoy! Nothing feels too precious, but everything is thoughtfully and wonderfully curated. I was super busy and only managed to snap a few of my own photos, but his house was just featured in CA Home & Design magazine, so I will share their lovely photos!

Finally, a few of my photos of some of my favorite moments from the house:

Between the gorgeous home and generous hospitality, it was hard not to feel like I was on vacation even though we worked hard!

As for this weekend, I am happy to be done travelling and ready to enjoy some relaxation/snuggling with my favorite boys! :)  Have a great weekend!
