“The design intent of this extraordinary newly created estate was to capture the views of the gorgeous mountains in every room and ensure that it seamlessly integrated into the desert landscape. I envisioned the interiors to be carefully curated with unique, custom details, shapes and texture that are inspired by the sculptural mountains and unique graphic shadows of the desert plants. With a nod to the past and an eye on the future, this home explores the modernist perspectives of California elegance with an edge.” – MICHELLE BOUDREAU, interior design MICHELLE BOUDREAU DESIGN michelleboudreaudesign.com
FLASHBACK | MODERNISM WEEK 2020
MESA MODERN SHOWHOUSE PHOTOGRAPHY BY MANOLO LANGIS
In February 2020, Modernism Week brought thousands of design professionals and enthusiasts to the Palm Springs area to celebrate midcentury architecture and design, preservation and education, as well as the launch of more contemporary projects like the Mesa Modern Showhouse. Produced by Karen Okner, designed by Michelle Boudreau, with John Feldman overseeing the landscape architecture, and premier sponsor Bob Allred of Juniper House furnishing outdoor spaces including tile and stone—the project was a study in appropriately blending a modern aesthetic into an iconic landscape and famously midcentury environment.
"Working with Michelle and John on their beautiful spaces gave me so much joy. I was honored to be able to curate a group of talented individuals that I not only admire, but that also have the talent of differentiating themselves in the design industry. Mesa Modern was not only a successful show house, but an example of true collaboration.” – KAREN OKNER, showhouse producer DESIGN COLLABORATIVE designcollaborativeusa.com
