The four-bedroom, four-bath house is U-shaped with this large, open-plan living area in the center. Kennedy, the designer, kept the old lava-rock fireplace but repainted the living room walls, which had been Tiffany blue. Instead he selected a subtle shade that mirrors the desert outside. For above the fireplace, Kennedy commissioned a diptych by artist Shawn Savage. The pair of paintings, inspired by an abstract artwork of the period, reflect the house's new sand-and-chocolate color palette. The result: Midcentury spirit interpreted for a contemporary setting.
