Warm Modernist Kitchen

A Palm Springs desert retreat gets a cool white reno.

Canadian actress Kathleen Robertson took an outdated post-and-beam bungalow and turned it into the minimalist abode she dreamed of. In her open-concept kitchen, black Bertoia chairs punctuate the neutral kitchen and dining area. A sleek rectangular light fixture is suspended from the original tongue-and-groove ceiling. Stark white walls and cement floors lend the space a gallery-like vibe, which Kathleen and her husband were aiming for.
