More Modernism Week in Palm Springs

Today is the last day of Modernism Week in Palm Springs. Our Modernism activity was a tour of six homes in the Twin Springs condominium complex. All 40 homes in Twin Springs were designed and built in 1972 by architect in South Palm Springs. 

Two of the units we visited still have the original foil wallpaper and popcorn ceilings. Others have been remodeled but still keep with the mid-century theme.  

Palm Springs designer Arthur Elrod actually had a condo in Twin Springs and designed the interiors of many others. His three bedroom "model" home was one on the tour. 

Each residence was designed by Wexler to enjoy the outside vista and has an unbelievable view of either the San Jacinto Mountains or the desert-landscaped pool areas and stream. Large rooms, high ceilings, sunken master suite tub and sunken living rooms on the ground floor, with patios or full length balconies on the second floor, provide the perfect care-free, indoor-outdoor, Palm Springs condominium lifestyle.
