Having previously worked with Los Angeles-based interior design firm Bells + Whistles, Jillian and Tim recruited them again to renovate a home in Rancho Mirage, Calif., Near Palm Springs. The original home was built in 1957 by iconic architect Donald Wexler as part of Thunderbird North, a community of 10 homes designed by Palm Springs architects William Cody, Donald Wexler and Richard Harrison. The renovated residence, named Marrow Midcentury, spans 3,380 square feet, all of which have been transformed by Bells + Whistles with “injections of vibrant color, hypnotic patterns and desert magic – creating the California getaway home. par excellence “.
The interior is worthy of a dream with bright spaces with predominantly white surfaces that become the backdrop for the organized mix of vintage, new and custom furniture and furnishings. A custom coral velvet upholstered sofa from Modshop floats on a white shag rug with two vintage Jay-mar chairs completing the seating area.
Just as eye-catching as the living room, the dining area has a colorful FLOR carpet tile area with a massive dining table custom-made by Modshop, who also made the pink chairs.
The master bedroom features a calming neutral color palette resting on a Sarah Sherman Samuel rug by Lulu & George with arches created by a higher pile. A Room & Board canopy bed and Crate and Barrel chairs make bold statements in white, while an Anthropologie travertine and wood coffee table adds warmth.
And if the interior isn’t Instagram-worthy enough, check out the geometric pool painted by Alex Proba!
In addition to native plants, the entrance has a light reflecting disco ball all around the atrium walls.
