Home Tour: 'Dragnet' house in Palm Springs gets an updated look
Palm Springs Modernism Week is coming Feb. 12-21, and to whet your appetite, we've got a Palm Springs house with a pedigree for you to examine. The home originally belonged to Jack Webb, best known as Joe Friday on "Dragnet." He had it built in 1960, just after the show's eight-year run came to an end.
The current owners -- snowbirds from Illinois -- hired Palm Springs decorator Christopher Kennedy to help them get a look that is true to the house's Modernist roots, but doesn't look like a paint-by-the-numbers Palm Springs abode.
