The Christopher Kennedy Compound at “Villa Golightly”

I was thrilled to receive a call from Allison and Liza of Trellis Home to discuss a project for The Christopher Kennedy Compound Show House for “Modernism Week” in Palm Springs, California. I was even more excited to find out that my work would be featured at “Villa Golightly”! Kelly Golightly is a social media sensation!

This master bedroom has been featured in Traditional Home magazine “Color Me Modern” issue.

For this exciting project, I took my “vibe” from Florence Broadhurst, a distinctive Australian wall paper and fabric designer. I was inspired by her design legacy and bold style. I was attracted to a particular bold at her “peacock” motif printed wallpaper and decided to create a large peacock silhouette, filling it in with hidden names, places, patterns and even a illustration of “Villa Golightly”. Working with Allison and Liza’s color palette of cream, soaring sky blue, aqua and teal, the monochromatic colors work harmonious together. I rotated the canvas to 45 degree’s to create a diamond shape to highlight the peacock and give the painting a mid-century feel. This piece is completely custom, from the composition to color, and I’m proud to have it included as a showcase piece in this fantastic event!
