An exciting addition to the 2014 Palm Springs Modernism Week has just been announced: a decorator show house coined “The Christopher Kennedy Compound,” featuring the designs of Palm Springs interior designer Christopher Kennedy and his favorite fellow interior designers. Kennedy purchased a 1971 Stan Sackley estate in Palm Springs for the project, and is using the decorator show house as a way to give back to Palm Springs by raising funds for modernism and architectural preservation causes
“My goal with the Compound is to celebrate Palm Springs’ architecture in its heyday, while updating a swanky vintage house for the realities of modern living, using the best of today’s technology,” says Kennedy. “This is truly a home created for a Jetsetter – a world-traveler who comes to Palm Springs for privacy, rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation of the mind and body.”
The roster of participating interior designers is a who’s who of industry talent:
Celerie Kemble, designing the master bedroom
Jiun Ho, designing the dining room
Lori Dennis, designing the front terrace
Ron Woodson & Jaime Rummerfield, designing the living room
Patrick Dragonette, designing the den
Trina Turk, designing the pool terrace
Sammy Castro, designing the landscaping
Christopher Kennedy, designing the rear terrace
The designers’ visions are being brought to life by First Atrium Construction, in partnership with Cosentino Silestone Quartz, Aran Cucine, Neo Metro Fixtures, Gessi Bath, La Cantina Doors, Crestron Home Automation, and more than three dozen local and national residential design resources like Pirch, Egg & Dart Showrooms, and Modern Home.
The show house will be open to the public during Modernism Week from Feb. 13 – 23, 2014, and the designs will be featured in Luxe Interiors + Design. Tickets are available for purchase now on ModernismWeek.com.
