Last Sunday was the last day of  the 10th Anual Palm Spring’s Modernism Week, a heady combination of cocktails, swimming pools and design that happened since 12th to 22th February.

This year, the Cristopher Kennedy Compound returned as result of over a dozen going to work on a ranch house along the Indian Canyons Golf Resort fairway. He started the tradition last year bu this time around he wanted to “keep it a little more casual, have a little fun with it.”

Kennedy is a resident of Palm Springs for 12 years so he was inspired by the blues and greens of his desert city. Using the golf courses, the succulents, the turquoise pool water as a palette and asked designers to “keep  it relaxed, gorgeous and inspiring – everythig that Palm Springs should be”, while conveying the easy lucury of the city’s celebrity history.
