This Modernism Week featured home’s redesign is inspired by travel and sailing

Strolling through the turquoise door of Maison Bleue Moderne in the Vista Las Palmas neighborhood of Palm Springs, you’re greeted by a photo of vacant lounging chairs by a pool, which sets the scene of the home.  

The four-bedroom, four-bath, 2,400-square-foot Alexander Company home designed by William Krisel and produced in 1958 is one of the featured homes for Modernism Week. Situated below the San Gorgonio Mountains, this house has mid-century modern signatures such as combining indoor and outdoor living, a gabled roof and clerestory window. 

The home was revised by Michelle Boudreau Design in Palm Springs and presents the new owners’ distinctive tone and affection for travel and sailing. The blue textiles applied to bedroom headboards, chair cushions, backsplashes and tile in many parts of the home are in appreciation of the oceans.

A California Home Inspired by European Design and West-Coast Sensibility

If Tai Rittichai had to pick a favorite room in her elegant 1920s Tudor home in San Marino, California, it would be the kitchen. The warm and inviting space is a busy hub for three generations of her family. Friends flock to the island when she entertains; her two young sons do their homework there; and her mother, Somsiri, a talented cook, can usually be found there preparing delicious dishes originating from her native Thailand. Style-wise, it also spans nations: There are Belgian farmhouse chairs and Swedish Hans-Agne Jakobsson sconces, and the walls are coated in Farrow & Ball paint from England. It encapsulates the distinct aesthetic that Rittichai and the interior-designer couple Cy and Genevieve Carter created together over several years, starting in 2017. And it tells the story of her life, from an extremely modest childhood in Bangkok to her soaring success as a globe-crossing business owner.
