Casa Blanche - A Palm Springs Desert Delight
In the heart of Palm Desert, California, one of the most in demand suburbs of Palm Springs, located in the coveted Coachella valley, lies a beautifully completely redesigned and renovated ranch property, Casa Blanche. Featuring Cathedral ceilings, oversized wrought iron light fixtures, and a large, open floor plan, this desert oasis offers a light, airy and energetic feel filled with beautiful mid century modern design inspirations. Decor influences mix pop art with beach chic for the perfect eclectic vibe of Palm Springs to compliment the mid century modern inspired pieces. Bold lines can be seen throughout the home, marking the fireplace, tiling, raised entryway, bathroom remodels, custom backsplashes and kitchen island.
Casa Blanche is the perfect offering of relaxation in the Coachella Valley, with views of their beautiful blue skies by day, pink sunsets at night, surrounding mountains and Palm trees. The home’s backyard is the ultimate dreamy and serene setting, featuring a mediterranean inspired redesigned pool and spa, adorned overhead with strung Edison lights, a cactus and rock garden, antique mirror accents, fruit trees, and comfortable outdoor furniture.
The 2,000 square foot home features three bedrooms and three baths, with a beautiful master suite, a large open floor plan, breakfast nook, entertainer’s dream kitchen, and game room. The rear outdoor seating areas are surrounded by beautiful landscaping featuring a variety of hand selected cacti, and draping bright pink bougainvillea. A custom peachy pink entry door compliments the Spanish tile roof for the ultimate inviting element of Palm Springs modernism.
The home remodel was completed by Coachella Valley Homebuyers, Cindy Squyers (www.CVHomeBuyer.com) ,their director of home redevelopment and design. They have been active in the community for 25 years and have remodeled and flipped hundreds of homes in the area. Casa Blanche being one of their most recent projects completed in early 2020.
The final interior decorating of Casa Blanche was done by Alexandra Lasky, whose company The Influence focuses on marketing, influencer relations, events and event design, along with home decor as a newly added focus. With Covid-19 affecting events, their skilled event design background easily transitions to home decor, a passion of Alexandra for many years.
“I added bold yet inviting accent pieces such as bright yellow metal kitchen stools, a teal tea kettle to compliment the teal sofa, neon wall hangings, and custom bright pop art for the walls of the main living space to create an inviting, cheerful feel for both entertaining guests and relaxing with a sense of joy and serenity. Everything from the gold pineapple accents to animal print throw rugs were chosen carefully to not overwhelm the space, but compliment the bold light fixtures and white walls. The bedrooms were decorated with a more serene goal in mind, yet still reflective of the Palm Springs feel. Hand-made dream catchers, ladder shelves, furry throw rugs, bold but soft printed bedding, etc. It is important that each room feels inviting yet comfortable. The custom gray washed wooden pool table was carefully chosen to match the kitchen island, flooring and master bedroom furniture to tie the home together for a flow easy on the eyes. The matt gold accented furniture, trinkets and ambiance elements also maintain a steady design theme throughout the home.”
