Location: Palm Springs, California
The Skinny: Arthur Elrod, the interior wizard best known for the UFO-like residence he commissioned from John Lautner, designed the inside of this $2.15M Palm Springs home. Located in the “prestigious” neighborhood of Old Las Palmas, it’s got all kinds of “quintessential Palm Springs glamour” on display, in the words of the Sotheby’s listing, with swanky floor-to-ceiling double doors opening onto an “exceptional great room” with 14-foot ceilings, rear walls of glass, and a wet bar backed by a geometric mirrored wall. The walls and doors of the living room, lounge, and office are clad in handsome cyprus pecky wood. Off the upgraded kitchen, an informal dining area has French doors that open out onto a backyard hidden by tall hedges, with a pool and a built-in barbecue.
