Palm Springs is the mecca for mid-century modern homes and the perfect place to kick back and relax, especially if this house was yours. The Cooper Residence was designed by Ric A. Harrison and built in 1967 with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The Coopers purchased the home in a 1960s golf community and hired Moore Ruble Yudell to renovate the low-slung, flat-roofed home.

With light filtering in from two sides of the home, and one wall of glass that opens up to the fairway and the mountains, the Coopers were sold on the property. John Ruble, of Moore Ruble Yudell, along with Interior Design Director Stanley Anderson, did a complete renovation to the rooms, including new doors, windows, and opening up the space between the kitchen and living room.

Besides renovating what you could see, they updated the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and AV. Each of the rooms was overhauled with new finishes, millwork, lighting, artwork, and furniture, making the residence appear completely refreshed.

Classic mid-century furnishings were brought in helping to pay homage to the architectural history of the house.

Against the white backdrop, they used pieces in bold, primary colors.

The courtyard got a new BBQ, water feature, and fire pit, which received a Calacatta marble backdrop that was book-matched to reflect the San Jacinto mountain range off to the west.
