Dreaming of Palm Springs
|The Mira Loma Hotel in Palm Springs. Via.
Maybe its because I was just in Los Angeles this weekend or maybe its because of my research for this week's Tartan & Sequins Style File post for Classic Bride (live May 3rd), but I cannot get Palm Springs out of my head. Amazing weather aside, I just love the vibe out there. Palm Springs is ultra-cool, ultra-chic and ultra-retro.

For those of you who are less familiar with Palm Springs, this epicenter of laid-back glamour is located about 2 hours (without traffic of course) east of Los Angeles. Since the 1920's Hollywood stars have been flocking to the hot, dry, sunny weather and seclusion in Palm Springs. The stars commissioned architectural modernists who flourished using the city to explore architectural innovations, new artistic venues, and an exotic back-to-the-land experiences according to Wikipedia. AKA, there are a LOT of cool homes there. Here is one of the most famous homes in Palm Springs, the Kaufmann House, designed in 1946 by Richard Nuetra.
