Sorry I’ve been away. But I was a lucky girl this past weekend and spent my days basking in some lovely sunshine in Palm Springs, CA. This was my Christmas present from a very romantic husband of mine. He wrapped up an empty box for me to open Christmas morning and after a confused miche stared into loose tissue paper, he presented me with an itinerary of Southern California fun and pre-arranged childcare! I didn’t know that Palm Springs was a mecca of mid-century modern design- but after googling our destination a few times for some fun things to see and do, I was delightfully surprised by this. I LOVE mid-century design and architecture. Palm Springs was a hot-spot for many Hollywood celebs during it’s earlier days. Marilyn Monroe was supposedly discovered at one of these swanky hotel clubs. Anyways, I loved it and we had a fabulous time finding design inspiration everywhere. Here are some of the highlights. Enjoy!
Couldn’t start the first morning without a mimosa!
I think I drove one of these in a former life.
He’s romantic and good-lookin’
Isn’t this beautiful? It’s the front desk of a J.Crew store.
This became our favorite place to dine after a recommendation from friends
Only in California
Quite possibly the coolest looking Target
I have always loved room dividers with this kind of graphic-appeal
I love french-press coffee in the classic bodum!
A couple in love enjoying our very relaxed state 🙂
