If his elegant evening dresses in bright colors are any indication, fashion designer David Meister is all about the bold and the glamorous. But, surprisingly, you won't find any of those vibrant hues in his Palm Springs home, which he shares with his partner, the movie producer Alan Siegel. Our friends over at California Home + Design offers a sneak peek inside the couple's house.
The couple purchased the one-story midcentury modern house five years ago and tapped their trusted friend and interior designer Timothy Guetzlaff to outfit the space. For Meister and Siegel, it was important that the home also serve as a showcase for their collection of contemporary artworks. With that in mind, Guetzlaff used a neutral palette for the home, which features cool-toned white walls that help bring out the colors in the couple's art pieces. And, contemporary furnishings in black leather and mirrored accents were incorporated to give the home a slightly glam-rock vibe.
However, the most intriguing design element is actually outside the home: a collection of chrome hubcaps mounted to an exterior. Guetzlaff got the idea from a visit to an architect's home in Mexico where old mill wheels were hung on a wall as decor -- Guetzlaff just preferred hubcaps instead. Now, they're the first thing visitors notice upon arriving at the house. And, although unusual, we'll say it's a bold touch that's very much in keeping with Meister's daring style.
