Modernism Weeks Past: 5 Favorite Palettes From Featured Homes
02/09/2022 | dunnedwards |
Love is in the air, and it’s not just because roses abound and Valentine’s Day is on the horizon. No, Mid-century modern lovers are rejoicing because this month spells the return of Palm Springs Modernism Week, an annual love letter to all things art and architecturally Mid-century modern with tours, lectures and more. Throughout the early and middle part of the 20th-century, Palm Springs was a playground for architectural experimentation—a landscape in which modern architects felt free to explore new concepts. It is no wonder that today, Palm Springs remains a magnet for creatives looking to color outside the lines. Palm Springs Modernism Week celebrates the work of architects of the era such as Joseph Eichler and William Krisel and is a place where modern day interpretations of the iconic aesthetic—from applications in style, to art, as well as architecture—can also be appreciated.
As the proud exclusive paint sponsor of Modernism Week, Dunn-Edwards is looking forward to showcasing our paint product and color at this year’s featured homes including Limón, with style inspiration from the 1968 Olympics and Seventies Sackley, a re-imagining of the Indian Canyons residence originally designed by noted architect Stan Sackley. And with that in mind we’re taking a look back at some of our top palettes from Modernism Weeks past.
