Revisiting the Mesa Modern

This midcentury-inspired home showcased next century design details.

The Modernism Week Featured Home: Mesa Modern was created by an all-star design team that included interior designer Michelle Boudreau, landscape architect John Feldman of Ecocentrix, and Juniper House.  This modern home was midcentury inspired but definitely looked to the future.

Mesa Modern is a representation of Palm Springs’ new design movement, one that embraces influences of the midcentury modernist details with a contemporary twist. Expansive outdoor living areas essentially doubled the area of the home.  Dramatic white walls created pockets of privacy and small courtyards outside, reminiscent of the idea of a modern medina. Over the 10-day span, Mesa Modern was open for self-guided tours where attendees were invited to tour this one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

“The interior environment is carefully curated with unique, custom details, shapes and textures that are inspired by the sculptural mountains and unique graphic shadows of the desert plants.” – Interior designer Michelle Boudreau.

Mesa Modern was also one of the stops on the VIP Bus Tour for design professionals, highlighting the very best of Modernism Week.  Mesa Modern was also host to a Poolside Design Brunch with Annie Selke and Michelle Boudreau and a late-night Don Ho-inspired party.
