Our number one favorite thing to do in Palm Springs (when we would actually leave The Parker) is to take in all the incredible architecture and designs. There were several times that, while on the way to eat or to somewhere else, we found ourselves driving aimlessly, admiring the gorgeous homes in the area. Palm Springs has a certain signature aesthetic to it that I absolutely love. I'd say my own personal design aesthetic comes pretty close - just throw in a little boheme and a splash of farmhouse, and that's pretty much it.
This trip was perfect timing for us to soak up as much inspo as we could before taking on our biggest renovation yet. Cactus Mountain is definitely going to have a lot of inspo from what we saw.
This is one of my favorite doors (thanks to my friend Stephanie for texting me the address and insisting that Nikko and I go while we were there.) The house and the door are designed by designer, Moises Esquenazi, and might arguably be one of the most famous homes in Palm Springs, at this point. While we're not getting a pink door at Cactus Mountain, it definitely started giving us some exciting ideas. Stay tuned for some inspo to give you an idea of what we want to do sometime next week!
