The only way to describe the PALM SPRINGS style is with two very apt words: FREAKING AWESOME. This iconic design style has everything!
It's chic, it's sleek, it's colourful, yet, it still retains a certain relaxed, casual, feel. Think glamour infused poolside parties, framed by all white architecture that's injected with bold pops of colour and highlighted by splashes of gorgeous botanicals such as cacti, desert palms and birds of paradise. It's bliss and it's coming to Australia.
Palm Springs style is built from clean crisp lines, vivid bursts of bright colour and a charming cohesion of indoor and outdoor spaces influenced by a discord colour palette of blues and greens that would be otherwise foreign in the deserts of California. Together, these elements are the hallmark of this modern desert oasis style.
Influenced from Hollywood Regency trends dating all the way back to the 1930’s, when celebrities from Hollywood would flock to this romantic destination to escape winter’s harsh reality. Luminaries such as Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich, Cary Grant, Loretta Young and Marilyn Monroe would enjoy the endless summers available in the Californian desert. These days VIP’s such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad and Angelina and Orlando Bloom are setting up shop in this oasis.
