What To See at Modernism Week: Meet Kelly Golightly at Modernism Week #kellygolightly @modernismweek #palmsprings #deserteichler #eichler #eichlerhouse

Happy weekend, my little palm vivants! Many of you have sweetly asked where I will be during Modernism Week, which makes me turn pinker than the wallpaper that will be gracing the walls of my Dressing Room at the Modernism Week Show House (oh, wait until you see!), so I wanted to share my Must-See Modernism Week Events + where I’ll be in case you’d like to say hello. And I hope you do!

Here’s where you’ll find me… 

1.  The Christopher Kennedy Compound: Modernism Week Show House | Feb 13-21

The Christopher Kennedy Compound: Modernism Week Show House is the #1 must-see event of Modernism Week. You can get tickets here + take a peek at last year’s show house at TraditionalHome.com and in the current issue of Traditional Home, the show house’s media sponsor. I’ll be designing the Dressing Room, natch, and will be at the Red Carpet Gala and Starlight After Party on February 13th, amongst such stellar company! The Red Carpet Gala had sold out but MW just released a few extra tickets, so scoop them up stat! I’ll also be popping in during tour hours throughout all of Modernism Week, so hope to see you there.

2.  Desert Eichler | Feb 13

Last year, the first Desert Eichler made its debut. As the first Eichler ever built in the desert, it was one of the most exciting events of Modernism Week and the home sold on the first day on the market. In the wake of its success, two new Desert Eichler homes have been built and you can tour both homes as well as the first Desert Eichler on February 13th. Gracing the walls of the new Eichlers will be Kelly + Fred Photography! I’m so excited for you to see our photos in such an iconic setting. I’ll be popping over on Saturday from 12:30-1:30 and hope to see you there. The new Desert Eichler house will also be home to this year’s Social House, the press hub of Modernism Week. You can get Eichler Day tickets here, which include the home tours and a film and panel discussion by Eichler developer Troy Kudlac of KUD Properties. And you can take a peek at Kelly + Fred Photography here.

3. Photos.com by Getty Images at CAMP| Feb 13-21

In addition to the above, I’ll also be teaming up with Getty Images to curate a Photos.com gallery wall at CAMP, the central hub of Modernism Week, where you can get tickets, have a drink, shop or simply take a break! Come see my curated picks from Getty’s vast collection. Hint: Expect old Palm Springs glamour and plenty of Slim Aarons. You’ll be able to see Poolside Reunion — our Poolside Gossip reunion photo —  in person as well. I’ll be popping in throughout the week so hope to see you there! No tickets necessary.

p.p.s. And in case it wasn’t clear just how much I love Palm Springs and Modernism Week, I declined both Fashion Week invitations AND a paid trip to the Caribbean to instead be at Modernism Week. My love is deep!
