Leave Modern

Ah, Palm Springs. while I think of it, I believe of The Rat Pack, that swanky Sinatra location, The Kaufmann House, Alexander Package Homes, fields of wind wind generators, the desert alongside the brilliant blue skies, Peewee and Dotty in a dinosaur, the Prada Outlet, the oasis of pools, vibrant Blenko bottles, mid century modern furnishings, orange turquoise and white, the diverse Jonathan Adler Designs in The Parker Palm Springs, Suzanne Somers’ mad contraption which gets guests up the mountain to her home, Kathy Griffin’s star on The Walk of Fame…as well as the list continues.

What’s Desert Modern Design? It’s certainly not restricted to Palm Springs while Palm Springs is the initial place that comes to mind. Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico have a lot of desert inspiration to provide. Desert Contemporary is now whatever you would like to make of it, inspired its past by environment, and potential requirements. We have noticed this is proven by the smart and thrifty owners of The Brick Home. It may be Sinatra-esque palm-leaves background. It could be a dialogue pit. It may entail the most recent methods to preserve water and locate some shade that is cooling. When you view it it the one point it usually has is a large touch of enjoyment you understand it, plus it really never takes itself too seriously. Below are a few good examples of Desert Contemporary from houzz that is around.

Okay, I confess it, I will be completely stuck on Adler’s Parker – it is an excellent example of the way in which the desert can be worked in by a palette of several feels.

I swear, here is the final Adler shot, but I saved the most readily useful for last – a dialogue fire pit that’s actually a prescription for anti- dwelling.
