Recognizing the potential of this midcentury condo in Palm Springs, Hyde-Evans Design focused on clean, crisp lines and just enough contemporary sensibilities of color and space-age whimsy to create a fresh and light oasis for the client. It's a period piece that's extremely comfortable in the present.
Redesigning the floor plan, Hyde-Evans Design opened the kitchen to the dining area, then complemented it with a visually dramatic floor-to-ceiling room divider to maintain a private living area. The walnut accent wall with built-in bar provides the Living Room with a focal point in lieu of a fireplace. The scale and color of the walnut wall gives visual heft to this modest space, making this common space feel larger than its actual size, more certain and solid.
The color scheme incorporated accents of bold color in each room, reminiscent of mid-century design along with iconic mid-century pieces that bring authenticity and interest to each space.
The custom cabinetry was first directed to the practical, but still designed to meet the customer's appreciation for the modern, the sleek and sophisticated. Approaching the shower or a sink, one feels like they're approaching furniture not cabinets, not fixtures. Color and materials makes the difference, bringing consistency of feeling throughout.
Hyde-Evans Design provided a full-service solution for the client: design, selection of interior finishes and furnishings, and project management including overseeing the construction.
