EXCEPTIONAL URBAN HOMES
Comfy Carol is located right next door to our Ugly Betty project in the Deepwell Estates neighborhood of Palm Springs. Carol was not in the bad shape that Betty was, but she was in desperate need of a makeover.
Our vision for Carol began with a clean white and fresh pineapple yellow color pallet. First to go were the bars on every window and the overgrown landscaping. A new sparkling spa and waterfall and a new firepit area with comfy furniture made the backyard a destination rather than an afterthought. In the front yard the centerpiece was a water feature which we designed and constructed with found scrap metal. A ficus hedge will soon provide the private lifestyle Palm Springs is known for.
Inside, we installed pine tongue in groove wood on the ceilings and painted it crisp white. The focal point of the living room, the cool corner fireplace, was given a fresh coat of white paint and a modern slate gray on the hearth. The concrete floors were painted a cool gray in a matte finish. Removing the outdated cabinets over the kitchen counter revealed an architectural feature that brought the home into 2014. After removing wallpaper from every wall in the house, the bathrooms and bedrooms were updated with new tile, fixtures and paint. The project took just over three months to complete. Enjoy the photos!
