I’m just loving the neutral palette of Kelly Klein’s Palm Beach home. The wood against white has a surprising calming effect and adds just the right amount of texture to the overall minimalist style.
Kelly was wife to Calvin Klein, but the two divorced in 2006. She is a noted photographer and author (her sixth book, Pools: Reflections, a sequel to the 1992 bestseller Pools, will be published by Rizzoli next month). Working with David Piscuskas of 1100 Architect, Kelly built an intimate getaway that’s a perfect fit for her blissful new life.
“I wanted something a little Neutra, a little Ando, a little Bauhaus–y. I knew in my mind how I wanted to live here—in an indoor-outdoor house, enjoying the breeze off the water, with the family always together,” Klein says. “I find that in big houses everybody is always in a different room, no one can find each other. I was going to build a really compact house. I call the four bedrooms my hotel rooms.”
