MY.weekend.HOME.



























One of my favorite things about Palm Springs is all the amazing Mid Century architecture.  I knew this trip I wanted to take some time to explore the area and see some of the fabulous design that the city has to offer.  In doing some research online I found Elvis' Honeymoon Hideaway.  It's one of the best examples of a Mid Century residence built by Palm Springs socialites, The Alexanders.  It is also the home where Elvis spent the first year of marriage to Lisa Marie. I was really quite intrigued reading all about it's history here. I didn't realize you could actually tour the estate until now, so that is def on the list for next time!

While the home from the street was cool, what I really fell in love with was the entire nieghborhood. It was then that I found my future weekend home. ( You know, once I have an extra $1,000,000 laying around).

 It's pink and powder blue! And Mid Century! And looks like the most fun design project ever.  I'm picturing Jonathan Adler meets Shabby Chic, with a fabulous pool out back.  Can't you just see me and Lola dressed like Twiggy, throwing fabulous weekend soiree's here? ONE DAY....



And hello-- my weekend house has to be on Lola Street.
