Name: Michael Location: Palm Springs, CA Size: 1,250 sq/ft Years lived in: Own (3 bdrm/2 bath home) >> Enter Slideshow This Friday we're fortunate enough to have two house tours from our new tryout writers. The first is from Rebecca and a mini-house tour of a quintessential MidCentury dwelling in sunny Palm Springs: Stepping into Michael's 1955 Palm Springs home feels like a modern time warp – past or future! Michael's desert home is full of textured accents he picked up on his worldly travels mixed with his love of classic modern style with a color twist. Thoughtful in his design, Michael's use of bright orange as an accent works beautifully throughout his space... >> Enter Slideshow AT Survey: My/Our style: Mid-century modern Inspiration: Richard Neutra structure with a Rat pack meets the Jetsons interior design Favorite Element: The gorgeous mountain views from our living room and front pool. Biggest Challenge: Creating intimate spaces in an open floor plan. What Friends Say: "Lets party!" Biggest Embarrassment: Champagne stains on the cowhide rugs from Buenos Aires Biggest Indulgence: As a housewarming gift, my friends arrived with a 7ft metal yellow giraffe that they had found at an auction.  It was formally at a children’s playground and now sits in my front rock garden and greets my guests. Best advice: Bring the texture and the environment around you inside your home. Green Choice: We use all eco-friendly cleaning products, like method, and we have a salt-water pool. (Thanks, Michael!) >> Enter Slideshow
