Great color pay off

An Alexander Construction Company-built midcentury home in—where else?—Palm Springs has gotten a bright and cheery makeover thanks to interior designer Michelle Boudreau.

While the building itself was also refurbished, it’s the period-but-contemporary flourishes that bring the desert pad to life. With an ever so slightly butterflying roofline, the sun-filled residence combines a white exterior with equally fresh interiors accented by a mix of materials—wood paneling, glass, marble—and splashes of color.

A large brick hearth anchors the great room, which boasts beamed ceilings and a wall of windows facing a dazzling pool. A corner is paneled with wood to create a cozy living nook, and while the furniture is mostly neutral-hued, royal blue accents—think cushions and a lounge chair—make the space pop.

At the opposite end is an open kitchen with a marble backsplash, white countertops, and dusty blue cabinets. This palette extends to the master suite, which also includes a marble fireplace and a variation on the light gray couch in the living room. In another bedroom, green is the theme, and in another, blue, and in yet another room, natural.

Throughout the home, clerestory and floor-to-ceiling windows practically beckon the sun to enter—to say nothing of that backyard. Expansive, inviting, and, of course, pool-equipped, it’s your own private oasis. Have a look.
