The Doors You Don’t See

That Pink Door - A Non-Colorful Palm Springs Door Tour

During my last trip to Palm Springs, my friend Sally and I were determined to go on our own Palm Springs door tour. Obviously I’m referring to “That Pink Door”, and all of the other brightly colored doors belonging to the mid-century modern houses. While Sally was after something more bright, I was a lot more appreciative of the doors that weren’t brightly colored. I loved all of the doors that added a certain charm without taking away from the beautiful architecture. Today I’m simply sharing some of my favorites.

While we were slinking around (ha!), snapping photos of random people’s houses, a man who lived in one happened to be outside and invited us into his backyard. Sounds totally cool right? Or like the beginning of a horror film. Either way we very carefully went to check it out. It turns out that all of the homes back onto a golf course and have a beautiful view of the mountains. It was sort of magical.

On top of the stylish architecture, the landscape of these homes was stunning. From purple cacti to artichoke-shaped plants, everything was interesting. I just love desert landscape and wish I could make it work in our rental.

  1. This was a fun post and perfect timing as I was just there last weekend. I went on a modern home tour with The Mod Squad and I highly recommend it. After the tour my sis and I made a quick trip to the pink door. Quite cute! Hoping to get a post out soon about my three days there. Not sure if you have been to the Parker but the photo ops are endless. Have a great week!

  2. Oh this is such a fun post idea! I am always looking for a good background and doors are one of my favorites.

  3. All three of those doors are super cool! That pink one is my favorite – you definitely don’t see that around very often 😉

  4. I’ve never had Palm Strings on my tourism wishlist, but the photos you posted are gorgeous! I love the colorful cacti and the pops of color. The metal door covers are intriguing.

  5. I absolutely love the color of that door. It is very feminine. I think your blog post will sound creepy if it is a black door. Oh, if it is black, I would not love to enter it. I am glad its not and I think that everyone would love to stay in that spectacular place.

  6. I’ve been to Palm Springs several times, but haven’t really noticed the colorful doors! I gotta be more observant on our next trip!

  7. I absolutely LOVE this post idea. I have been looking at doors lately. I think they can really describe a person and are something that should not be missed in a home.

  8. I have never been to Palms Springs, but I love the fresh clean look. I have always wanted to visit it so I am going to have to make plans.
