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.
