Bedroom with boulder, by Albert Frey

Frey House II

Frey Residence, Palm Springs, 1965

Frey House, photo by Julius Shulman

The Frey House, Palm Springs, 1963-4. Built by Albert Frey for himself, in the Desert Modern style he established in Palm Springs. I love this bedroom far too much.

Bottom two photos are from Julius Shulman’s “Modernism Rediscovered” books, published by Taschen.
