Palm Springs: day 7

Saturday was our last day in Palm Springs.  Prior to checking out I took photos of our groovy mid-century modern home where we enjoyed a wonderful week.
Street view.  I really liked the over-sized house numbers.

Covered front porch

Front door and side light, both likely original
Living room, converted from a previous garage

From the living room to the kitchen

The kitchen had the original cabinetry (painted grey with new hardware) and a mixture of vintage and retro appliances

Vintage O'Keefe & Merritt oven

Vintage O'Keefe & Merritt gas cooktop.  I love how the burners are in a diagonal position rather than one over the other.
Dining area with lovely vintage table and chairs

I love the shape of the chair back and seat!

From the dining area to the kitchen

From the family room to the dining area. Floors throughout the home were concrete.

Fireplace sitting area in the family room

Other side of the family room

From the family room looking out to the pool and spa

Guest room

Hall bathroom with vintage shower tile and sink

Carl's room

Carl's room with a heart-shaped ottoman under the desk

Our room had sliders out to the pool

Our bathroom with original tile counter, sink, and painted cabinetry with new hardware

Pool from the family room sliders

Spa, lounge area, and fire pit with seating in the rear

This was on the back wall of the house and was lit at night behind the turquoise board.

Dining and sitting areas outside the kitchen door

Fire pit seating area

Spacious back yard
A great thing about this yard's exposure was that there was always sun AND shade.  Later in the afternoon the pool was completely shaded but other parts of the yard were sunny.  Since the sun is so strong there it was nice to be able to get out of the sun now and then without having to go inside.

After photographing the house and loading our luggage into the car, we headed to a marvelous vintage car show before going to the airport.
