Palm Springs

I spent last weekend in Palm Springs with clients and friends and we had a great time.  We went antique shopping to some fun places such as Hedge, Collin Fisher and Studio 111.  Then it was off to The Parker Meridien for lunch and spa treatments.  Designer, Jonathan Adler, created funky and eclectic interiors here with lots of colors, shapes and styles through out...

The Entry, I am always a fan and love using over-scaled door handles.. and dig the orange.

I love this Chesterfield Tufted Sofa and the Beni Ouarain Tribal Rug.  Beni Ouarain (Berber tribes in the northeastern Middle Atlas of Morocco) rugs are made of a soft, thick pile and the design has a white ground with relatively fine black lines forming a network of diamonds.  Borders are uncommon.  These textiles were historically used more for beds and bedding to keep warm rather than floor coverings.  

This Antiqued Peacock Mirror from Wisteria is a great focal point for any room.

As you move towards the back, the space has a mid-century modern flair.  Again, a ray of colors, shapes and styles that totally work from front to back.  The entry has a modern, orange-colored door and at the back orange is used as one of the typical mid-century colors for furniture. This inconspicuously pulls it together.

Door Hardware I love..

The Spa.. wish I had also taken pictures of the spa's pool and relaxation rooms

And The Viceroy; designed by Kelly Wearstler. She is known for bringing back bold colors and geometric designs as well but with a Hollywood glamour appeal.

 Love the off-centered tiled wall and the mix of furniture here. There is a lot of white throughout with bold colors which give fresh, light feel.

..and we came back for dinner.  The food was great; the garlicky bruschetta with buratta, marinated tomatoes, arugula pesto and the dugeness crab cakes with cilantro lime aioli, charred corn, and tomato relish were both outstanding.. not to mention the warm cookies for dessert!

Nice color combination and the contrast piping on the drapes add depth to the space.

The finials make the private dining area more defined, important..

The chill and relaxing pool..

A superb weekend with friends, food and design!
