If you pay attention to some of the more obscure Oscar categories, you're likely already familiar with the name Jay Hart. He recently took home the Oscar for Best Production Design alongside Hannah Bleacher for their work on the hit Marvel Studios film, Black Panther. The set decorator is also known for his work on films like L.A. Confidential, Pleasantville, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man 2, Punch-Drunk Love, and Fight Club.
Knowing his reputation for set design, when we recently found out that Hart put his Palm Springs home on the market, we couldn't wait to take a look inside. Located in Chino Canyon, California, the home offers sweeping views of the infamous Coachella Valley and décor that evokes the desert aesthetic. Hart listed the estate for $2.195 million with the TTK Represents group of HK Lane, an affiliate of Christie's International Real Estate.
The home spans 4,100 square feet and is situated in the exclusive Little Tuscany neighborhood of Palm Springs, the elite desert community now well associated with its lively hotel pools and Coachella music festival accommodations.

In the kitchen, modern décor and appliances give the room a sleek atmosphere. There are multiple hanging pendant lights, waterfall countertops on the kitchen island, and white cabinetry. The same tile from the living room is featured here, creating a cohesive look.
This dining room is a stunning space complete with an eye-catching contemporary chandelier that cascades down from the high ceilings which, like the living room, are punctuated by exposed wood beams. The room feels cozy and welcoming thanks to a patterned rug, flowers, and textured dining chairs.
