Greg Wolfson Interiors designed this stunning Martini house in Palm Springs, Los Angeles, California, USA. Martini House was a traditional, modern home built in 1960 and poorly updated in the 80s. Mirrored walls abounded—bad textured wallpaper, ugly fixtures, built-in shelves, etc.
Martini House In Palm Springs By Greg Wolfson Interiors
I began by stripping the house to its essentials, which meant removing the wall between the dining room and kitchen. This allowed a more breathable space, open concept, between entry through the living areas. The kitchen was no longer a box but a beautiful open space, where we updated the floor plan, added seating at the counter, and put in Green Apple Martini countertops.
Throughout the house, the artwork reflects the swinging ’60s in Film. Many authentic movie cards and posters punctuated the house’s decor and “party” feel. The “breathless” TV room is a modern version of a hookah lounge, with low furniture, a fire pit, surround sound TV, and a relaxed vibe. Three sides are glass.
Outdoors: I designed a slump stone barbecue area, bar, and firepit to get people moving throughout the backyard. I enhanced a dull area with a turquoise blue cabana to shade the guests while dining al fresco. Excellent furniture from Room+Board helped with the pops of color, baby blue and orange.
$25,000.00 construction/materials, $85,000.00 custom decor, artwork, and all furnishings, including towels, dishes, trash cans, tissue, soap, accessories, etc. We specialize in making a turn-key experience quick, easy, dependable, and on budget. All you need to move in is your suitcase!
This home took four weeks to complete once the owner closed escrow. We started on Dec. 1, and the client moved in on New Year’s Eve.
