Palm Springs Getaway: Part 1

Palm Springs

Well, after 13 years of living in California, I finally made it down to Palm Springs. And it was everything I’d hoped for: sunny blue skies, 80 degree temps, those incredibly tall palm trees and miles and miles of mid-century charm. It was fun just driving around the different neighborhoods and checking out all the homes—from the modest to the iconic.


We arrived at the tail end of Modernism Week, an annual festival that celebrates mid-century design, so we booked a home tour by architect Donald Wexler. No pics allowed inside, but I can tell you it was immaculate. And next year I really wanna check out that Kaufmann house by Richard Neutra. So cool.

We met some friends for the weekend (my old Cleveland neighbors!), and they rented this place, pictured above. Not only was it very cool, I have to say it was really nice having a BBQ and pool parties all to ourselves.

That being said, another fun thing to do in Palm Springs is check out all the hip hotels. We had dinner at the Purple Palm in the Old Colony Hotel, and lunch at Norma’s in The Parker. Everything was groovy, right down to the menu.

We stopped into a bunch of other places as well—just to check out the scene. And our own hotel, the Korakia Pensione, was ridiculously charming (I’ll be posting pics of that next).
