Midcentury Modern Home in Rancho Mirage, California
The Swan home, in Rancho Mirage, California, was built in the 1960s and has been reimagined for the twenty-first century. Glass walls around the home provide a three hundred and sixty degree view of the valley below and the mountain range above.
Stepping through a bold red door leads visitors into a private courtyard, where weatherproof chairs and a fire pit create a comfortable outdoor sitting area. Stone paths surround the vignette, offering a rich contrast to the wood deck.
