About this item

With its pastel green and yellow interior, its dazzling collection of Impressionist paintings, and long, low sofas that look like vintage Cadillac convertibles, Sunnylands was a Versailles for the Space Age. In Palm Springs, the mecca of midcentury modern architecture, this immaculately preserved estate is considered the undisputed masterpiece, envisioned by A. Quincy Jones, one of California’s most important architects, and furnished by California’s great decorator-to-the-stars, William Haines. Built by media moguls, art collectors, and diplomats Walter and Leonore Annenberg, Sunnylands became a seat of power where politicians, movie stars, and corporate leaders could meet, relax, reflect, make deals, and run the world—all with nobody watching. For four decades, an invitation to New Year’s Eve at Sunnylands was the ultimate social prize. Exquisitely illustrated,Sunnylands is a must-have for every fan of midcentury design.

My husband and I visited the Sunnylands Estate for the first time and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Annenbergs home in Rancho Mirage. The tour of the house and gardens were spectacular and breathtaking. The architecture of the home is beautifully displayed in the Sunnylands Estate book....see moreof the reviewer's review
