Design Trends

Situated within Eldorado Estates in the luxuriously appointed Indian Wells resort community, the 2022 Desert Oasis Show House, originally designed by Architect John Walling in 1978, presented a classic mid-century design reimagined into a stunning, tropical Polynesian paradise. Open for tours and events March 31 – April 10, the home offered attendees the opportunity to experience the estate’s unique beauty.

Building off of Walling’s mid-century creation, the house reflects the beauty and ease of the South Pacific surf lifestyle, masterfully merged with a crisp, refined aesthetic.
