Step back in time to 1964; you find your hair platinum blonde, lips full, cheeks rouged—why, you’re Jayne Mansfield, and this your very own Pink Palace! Situated on a comfortable corner lot within the tony Las Palmas neighborhood, this home, designed by Albert Frey and Robson Chambers, local architect extraordinaire, allows you to live a lifestyle where the line between indoors and out is blurred; wide sliding glass doors, louvered windows, and wrought iron screens allow an intimate interplay between the movements of light and air to move between each and every space in 1415 N Camino Centro.
Once past the thick, green, green hedge and inside the gates, palms, bird of paradise, and a lean, low water feature welcome you toward the extra tall front doors.
The delightful interiors match the friendly exuberance of the exterior of the home; from the expansive great room, with its sunny yellow and chartreuse furnishings, combined with the walls of glass, allows the poolside and mountain views to pop! The terrazzo and creamy travertine floors throughout the public rooms allow for barefoot living year-round. The kitchen, a neutral space complete with double ovens, could be updated, like many of the spaces, with a fresh coat of paint—bring the home’s clean lined exterior style inside.
The master bedroom, with pool views, could also benefit from a fresh design scheme, yet the walls of glass and mountain views bring your attention outward, as it should, when one is in Palm Springs. The best Palm Springs designs are always sumptuously spare and clean, allowing you to experience all that the out of doors has to offer before you return for a refreshing palate cleanser. My favorite aspect of this home is the vanishing threshold between the indoor and outdoor showers, which allows for a multitude of uses.
With mountain views such as these, it would be a high crime to not entertain your guests poolside with extra dry martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives beneath tasseled umbrellas. The scene this creates forces your hand to lean into embracing that Sunday fun day mindset.
