Tropical Retreat

With the help of an enthusiastic design team, a retired couple creates their forever home in this tiki-themed unit at a famed Palm Springs complex.
THE HOME’S COLOR PALETTE WAS INFLUENCED BY THE TROPICAL THEME AND THE HOMEOWNERS’ FAVORITE COLORS OF TURQUOISE AND PINK.

When Carlos Cardoza and his team at H3K Design began work on Darryl and Michele Burns’ Palm Springs home, they had a blank slate. “It was essentially an empty space with just a little wallpaper on a few of the walls,” Carlos says.
