If you’ve read my post about the stunning Christopher Kennedy Compound, you know that when it comes to kitchen design, one of my favorite cities to visit is Palm Springs. The city’s connection to mid-century modern design and architecture truly embraces the concept of modern living. And one of my other favorite design teams coming out of this area is Thomboy Properties. I’ve always admired how Thomboy Properties designers by Jackie Thomas and DeeAnn McCoy revitalize a space without losing sight of a property’s history and unique charm. Let’s take a look at how this design duo used Bosch home appliances as part of their latest home remodel: Sierra Way.
Before the renovation, Sierra Way was in need of a new aesthetic that complemented its stunning San Jacinto Mountains backdrop. It was also important that this project, especially from a kitchen design point of view, celebrated the spirit of Palm Springs: a vibrant place to refresh, recharge and reconnect with friends and family. As Palm Springs locals, Jackie and DeeAnn believe that a kitchen must be as equally functional as it is attractive, so the homeowners can not only relax and rejuvenate, but also comfortably host those that matter most to them. To achieve this balance of form and function, the designers chose the sleek design of Bosch as the centerpieces of the space. But, pay close attention to the design of this kitchen—there is more than what meets the eye.
When you first enter this kitchen, it might just take your breath away. The open floor plan is accented by warm-toned cabinetry, sleek countertops, and fresh accessories that add a bright pop of color. I love how all these design elements work together in perfect harmony to create a seamlessly integrated kitchen. I also admire how the horizontal wall oven installation, pictured below, creates a focal point for the kitchen that is a true conversation starter.
But, perhaps one of the most interesting kitchen design choices is how the pair incorporated two custom panel dishwashers and refrigeration into the kitchen. On the right in the kitchen above, you’ll notice that the custom panel refrigerator pair blends effortlessly with the cabinetry, while also providing the perfect medium for keeping food fresh and delicious. And, in the image below, our Bosch dishwashers are perfectly incorporated into the caramel-colored cabinetry, creating a peaceful, streamlined and cohesive feeling within the kitchen. With so much of Palm Springs living taking place in the kitchen, who wouldn’t want to brew a morning cup of coffee, or prepare an afternoon snack, in this beautiful space?
But, as they say, “pictures don’t do it justice.” Luckily, Jackie and DeeAnn were kind enough to walk us through the design of this gorgeous project. Take a look at the video below for additional kitchen design inspiration.
