This beautifully restored mid-century house in Palm Springs is a dream pad for retro design enthusiasts.

The restoration of this charming house was taken over by renowned architect and design wiz William Cody. Built originally in 1962, the Abernathy House was renovated in a way to maintain its authentic flair and identity.

After 50 years of neglect, Cody recently finished the restoration of the Abernathy House. Featuring rich wood textures and colorful art pieces and ascents, the retro design harmoniously meshes with its surrounding palm trees and translucent blue pool water—it looks like a mirage.

The architect also made sure to use all the right contemporary pieces—like an awesomely shaped light fixtures—to make this mid-century house fit in with our modern tastes.
