Palm Springs Eternal: A Desert Gem Gets Its Sparkle Back

Interior designer Sean Gaston and contractor Jim Jewell felt lucky to have placed the winning bid on a run-down house they had long admired in Indian Canyons, their Palm Springs neighborhood. But they had no idea how fortunate they were until they made a surprising discovery in a pantry. “We found a set of original plans in a roll of dusty wallpaper tucked away on an upper shelf,” says Gaston. “We were shocked to see that the house had been built by Stan Sackley in 1967.” Using this serendipitous find as their guide, Gaston and Jewell went to work ushering this sweeping estate into the 21st century.
