Palm Springs Hollywood Glam Home Tour

As much as I was enjoying Modernism Week, I couldn't help but peek into this well-timed open house. I welcomed this divergent moment from the modern minimalist style that we had been exposed to over these past few days.

Maybe it's my affinity for those Palm Springs Viceroy style yellow doors, or my penchant for yellow in general, or perhaps its the resort style pool replete with a cabana.  This is the type of vacation spot, I could see myself calling a second home.  

I've seen painted doors in yellow with these large silver handles in some of the most impressive Palm Springs hotels: orange at the Jonathan Adler designed Parker Hotel and yellow at the Kelly Wearstler designed Viceroy.

I love the unexpected pop of blue on the sofa and the chrome etageres flanking the Palm Springs inspired patterned screen.

This is a pool I could live at.  The amount of outdoor soirees I could throw here, leaves me dreaming.

I think this kitchen could make anyone cheery with that painted yellow wall, fun ceramic light fixture, and mirror.

Every bedroom has a different accent wall with graphic wallpaper.  To some this could be deemed overkill, but I adore these prints, making each room different yet cohesive.  Guests would get that hotel feel but in the comfort of your vacation home.  There is also continuity in each room with curtains that have the same roman shades, and yellow chairs, not to mention the yellow accents carried throughout.

The Master Bedroom.  I wouldn't mind snatching up those chairs.

More yellow walls in the guest bathroom.

View towards the kitchen.  I'm a fan of the black and white gallery wall, the pendant light, and those bar stools.
