exemplary model of the modern desert home The 5,000 square foot interior was designed with the concept of destination getaway in mind. As a second home for its owners, not only has it become the ideal entertaining place but also a resort-like haven of relaxation and retreat. Nestled at the base of a desert mountain located in La Quinta, California, the home's vast expanses of glass maximize the views and create a natural backdrop for the desert-inspired finish and furnishing palette. The strong indoor/outdoor connection is realized with large-scaled, sandblasted limestone flooring that flows from the exterior entry into the interior and then back out into the outdoor living space. Rift-cut oak millwork, concrete countertops, and gold accent wall color work together to radiate warmth throughout.
