Midcentury modern style is often sleek and airy, but sometimes it’s just plain fun, too. That’s the case with this two-bedroom, two-bath home in Palm Desert, California. Modestly sized at 1,391 square feet, the 1956 home’s exterior is a striking flamingo pink with white trim.
Retro-inspired globe pendant lights start at the home’s entrance and continue to the living room, adding a bit of whimsy to the interior. We wish the listing was fully staged, but you can still appreciate the show-stopping open concept living room, with large floor-to-ceiling glass, clerestory windows, and wood ceilings. V-shaped support beams break up the space, while a new kitchen uses solid wood cabinets, vintage appliances, and white countertops to try and replicate that 1950s feel.
Restored wood paneling and a brick fireplace with mustard accents add coziness to the home, and the entire living room looks out onto a saltwater pool with new heater and pump. The home is also located on Parkview Drive, a street that will soon have a section of the CV link—a bike, jogging, and small electric vehicle path that will connect eight Coachella Valley cities.
