Spending Labor Day weekend in Palm Springs really gave me some mid-century design inspiration. Just at a time when I am helping a young couple (who love mid-century style) with their new condo in West Hollywood.
I’m old enough to remember thinking mid-century looked dated!!! BUT now, mixing it in interiors looks so fresh! My daughter, Alexandra and I hit up some vintage and consignment stores like The Estate Sale Company.
The goods at Bon Vivant were pricier but SO WELL curated.
Alexandra took these photos…sorry about the quality. I realize my I-phone 6 takes better photos but I had left it in the car. Notice the colorful Italian glass! My mom had tall Italian amethyst decanters like these. I wonder where they are now?
We visited a few other shops and it was HOT. So, Alexandra and I decided to stop for a drink at the The Parker Palm Springs…to cool off.
These light fixtures add a fresh element to any space. I’ve always love painted brick.
Notice the colorful vintage glass in the lobby like in the Bon Vivant store.
Our spicy Margaritas (jalapeno slices added to a regular margarita) match the green marble bar.
Fun wallpapered ceiling in the bar.
The hotel has hedges and secret garden spots like this fire pit with fun butterfly chairs.
Here’s the plan for the young couple that I mentioned earlier… We’ve already bought the West Elm Crosby sofa. It’s comfortable.
