Sited on a quarter acre lot this 2,800 square foot home, dubbed the “Guggenheim House” in honor of the legendary Gigi Guggenheim, is located in the prestigious Indian Canyons neighborhood, which boasts deep midcentury roots and distinctive architecture.

Renovated for Modernism Week 2020 by Michael Ostrow of Grace Home Furnishings, this 1967 architectural gem has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a beautiful pool and spa.

The interior spaces feature a seamless blend of contemporary furnishings and vintage pieces, and the bold color palette expertly mixes pattern and texture to achieve a fun yet sophisticated atmosphere that embodies the carefree Palm Springs lifestyle.

Long time lovers of the Palm Springs aesthetic, the owners aspired to create a haven from their busy lives in the city and also offer guests the chance to experience the beauty and relaxation of the desert.

The neighborhood has also been home to many celebrities, including Frank Sinatra and Walt Disney. For over 20 years, Grace Home Furnishings has designed interiors throughout Southern California and beyond that embrace a variety of design styles – from midcentury modern to Spanish to East Coast traditional.

Their work has been featured in Palm Springs Life, House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Architectural Digest, Angeleno, Los Angeles Magazine and Modern Luxury Interiors. Their two showrooms, in Los Angeles and Palm Springs, offer custom furniture, accessories and full-scale interior design services.
