Visit "Villa GoLightly" Modernism Week Show House in Palm Springs!

Good Morning Readers, I have a treat for you today!  I've been following along on instagram watching all the beauty unfold at this year's Modernism Week  Show House in Palm Springs, California.  I have to say I'm a little jealous I had to cancel my plans to attend this year.   This may be my favorite Modernism show house to date!  The home is quintennial Palm Spring architecture and this year's designers have celebrated the spirit of the architecture with the perfect, colors, patterns, furniture, art and design in every room.  It is a feast for the eyes!
I want to take you on a little virtual tour of the home and share some of the details I'm digging.    

Fair Warning:  You need to grab a cup of tea or your fav beverage cause this is a long post but worth the time spent gandering!

Kudos to designer and producer, Christopher Kennedy for his vision for this year's show house and to Brendan Von Eck who has worked along with Christopher to make this show house happen.  The showhouse proceeds benefit Modernism week and other the preservation efforts. 
The project is sponsored by Traditional Home Magazine,  Thermador Home, Chairish, Ferguson, DuPont, Eggarsman USA cabinetry and more than three dozen other local and national design resources.

This year's Modernism Week show house is the 6,500 square foot home of the social media star, Kelly Golightly and her photographer husband, Fred Moser in the Andreas Hills area of Palm Springs.  Kelly pins a lifestyle blog for modern day Audrey Hepburn's.  Fred's amazing eye captures the daily adventures of Kelly who truly is a modern day Hepburn. They have christened their home so appropriately "Villa Golightly."  

The iconic "Palm Springs" brightly colored doors are evident at Villa Go Lightly.  The doors in the home were crafted from Able and Baker.  There was a contest on instagram to help choose the Dunn and Edwards paint color!  The winner was Amy Urban Architect!  I say the marigold-colored door is perfect!

Kate Spade New York was designed the foyer which has soft pale striped walls and colorful abstract art which is the perfect entrance into this colorful home.

The dining room designed by Christopher Kennedy borrows a page out of the "plays well with others" color guide.  This room has so much visual interest one would never get bored.  I especially love the mix of fabrics for the dining chairs with the side chairs representing the ever so popular green of the year.  A Wendover Art abstract is the perfect piece to add punch to the palette.  Of course, my personal favorite in the room is the vintage brass ibex dining table.  Swoon!

Designer, Barclay Butera designed a living room in a neutral palette which gives the eye a chance to rest before entering the rest of the color and pattern filled rooms.  Adding visual interest through texture, Butera created a lush, living room which is perfect for formal entertaining.

Grace Home Furnishings chose to channel Audrey with this iconic art wall featuring a pair of Audrey's facing one another.

It's def a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" inspired iconic lounge Grace Home Furnishings created.  I can picture Kelly and Fred having cocktails here can't you?

 Celebrity designer, Kelli Ellis designed a kitchen that made everyone want to cook!  This glam kitchen has accents of the perfect amount of brass to warm up this cool, chic space.  Those sexy counter stools from ATG Home, wow! The Thermador range is gorgeous and the right amount of stainless to give this mixed metal affect the perfect balance.  J'adore the tile backsplash from Tile Bar!  Kudos Kell for a sassy yet sophisticated space which I think takes a skilled designer to pull off!

Rachel Cannon Lewis nailed this laundry room!  I mean really?  Who wants to do laundry here?  I do, I do!!!

This space designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel of Los Angeles is sublime! I adore the pink agate wallpaper by Limitless Walls. Isn't it yummy? Her sponsors were Room and Board, Chairish, cb2, Lampsplus Ferguson, Lulu and Georgia, Simply Framed, West Elm and The Cartorialist.

The bath in Villa Golightly is another room channeling Audrey.  
Dawn McCoy designed a playful bath complete with a tub full of Moet
Champagne which gives "pretty in pink" a good name!

Super blogger Joy Cho founder and writer of OhJoy blog created this darling room and also those darling kids!  How cute is this?  She is an amazing blogger and so fun to follow and also happens to be pretty fab with interior design!

I'm not going to share all the rooms because you need to go see this for yourself.  But let's talk a minute about the outdoor spaces which are key to entertaining in Palm Springs.

Trellis Homes designed the killer master bedroom with the modern Audrey in mind.  I am digging the pattern play and colors in this chic room.

Close up of the custom designed bed canopy using Thibaut cryptonfabric "Bailey" fabric lined with Florence Broadhurst "Cockatoo" fabric pulled back with Pyar and co tassel tie backs, Selamat Designs Shanghai headboard and accent pillows, Matouk linens sheets make this master fit for a king and a queen.

A few glam pieces from Phillips Collection, Moss Studios and Selamat, round out the seating area in the Master by Trellis Home Design.

I have three walk-in closets, but not one is big enough to be a cloffice ( closet/office).  I envy Kelly this fab space designed by Michelle Harrison Design, complete with fashionable, personal assistant!

More from the other side of the cloffice!  Designed by Natasha Minasian.  It's not secret that I have a personal love affair with Dorothy Draper, Brazilliance.  So fab!

The Flamingo's Nest by Sammy Castro Design is a spot I would live in if this were my home.  Love the modern flamingo sculpture in the nest.

Madly in love with the outdoor space, Gray Malin designed with custom Santa Barbara umbrella.  Wait, there's more.  You will have to wait to see it, though!
