Home of the Week: Pink modernist bliss in Palm Springs


Architectural greatness runs through the studs of this Palm Springs home. Designed by local architects Albert Frey and Robson Chambers, the pastel pink landmark consists of a series of interconnected boxes dressed in travertine and walnut touches. Delicate aluminum screens designed by the office of Frank Lloyd Wright provide a layer of privacy while filtering natural light.
