YOU DO IT YOUR WAY: A TRIBUTE TO THE RAT PACK
Paying tribute to Desert Modernism, Skye by Woodbridge Pacific Group lies within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs and the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains. Skye is living up to its heritage as a Hollywood playground — an enclave offering a dream community that will only get better over time — in part thanks to the striking midcentury styling and updated designs Chameleon Design infused into this discerning community, showcased by this Residence 2 floor plan.
Chameleon Design struck a bold departure from other model interiors to pay homage to Desert Modernism, postwar Palm Springs’ rich midcentury modern architecture. The design evokes the bygone elegance of the Rat Pack and other Hollywood icons who favored this desert oasis as their swinging playground. A vintage avocado-and-aqua palette is enriched with velvet throws and faux fur; gold and brass accents add glamour.
Skye is living up to its heritage as a Hollywood playground, earning the Gold award for Best Detached Community of the Year, an honor Chameleon Design shares with Woodbridge Pacific Group, Hannouche Architects, Roxburgh, Professional Design Associates and Outdoor Dimensions. The Nationals also honored Chameleon Design with the Gold award for the Best Interior Merchandising of a Model priced over $1.5 million and a Silver award in the same category.
Artful interplay between indoor/outdoor space is evident in the lounge, which draws attention to the lavish pool court — where a signature sculpture and suspended seating basket elevate otherwise versatile furnishings. Unadorned sliders also permit seamless transition to outdoor leisure.
Although nostalgic, the design feels thoroughly fresh; Chameleon Design catered to sophisticated buyers who prize their homes as entertainment centers. With extravagant light fixtures and adjacent cocktail lounge, the crisp white kitchen boosts an open island design, ideal for entertaining. A great room with hearth and media wall completes the hospitality spaces. Large-format porcelain tile flooring unites the whole design, and retreats are equally distinctive. Book-matched marble, cantilevered cabinetry and recessed mirrors dramatize the master bath. Textural linens and wall coverings, and locally produced art and accents highlight all bedrooms.
