Amanda Blue Leigh's home in Palm Springs is all about connecting the interior to the exterior. While staying true to the Spanish vernacular, Amanda paid homage to the Modernist legacy of Palm Springs by opening up the house and bringing in light, by raising ceilings, adding skylights and glazed doors that open onto the verandas that surround the home. She used reclaimed materials wherever she could - the stained glass panel in the bathroom was a door salvaged from another home under renovation - while she concentrated on a sustainable garden, filled with native plants, that flourish in the desert, regardless of rainfall. Above are a few shots of the interior of her home. Click on pics to enlarge.
