Design Inspiration: Palm Springs

I Love VintageInterior Design InspirationTravel

To anyone who knows me well, it's no secret that I adore Palm Springs. From the beautiful butterfly roofline homes, the great shopping (seriously, the vintage furniture shopping is to die for), and the never-ending warm weather and sunshine, Palm Springs really has everything a gal could ever want. I'm actually planning a trip now (for the dead of Chicago winter).  But most of all, I just love how Palm Springs style is proud to be different, bold, and colorful - it is a little mod, a lot of bright and whole lot of spunk -  always a combination I can get behind!Palm-Springs-Summer-Thornton

Every time I travel to Palm Springs I get even more inspired by the colorful combinations, poolside style decor and tropic prints and patterns. Whether it's a floral romper spotted on an ever-so-chic dressing visitor from LA or the perfect vintage pineapple vase, there's always a quirky detail that makes me excited and inspires me to add it to a design project.  Below are a few funky ways to bring a bit of Palm Springs interior design into your home.

And when you go, be sure to check out the Parker Hotel which is quintessential Palm Springs vintage style full of quirk and lacquer.  Also you have to check out Mister Parker's Restaurant inside the Parker Hotel (I'd describe it as a psychedelic trip in the playboy mansion during the 60's) .  And the lobby is cool too with the mid-century suspended fireplace.  To.Die.For.  A must-see if you're in the area.
