Palm Springs Style

Someone please, take me far away from this cold winter chill! If you are anything like me, it's about this time of year when I decide I've had enough of the cold and am ready for some warmer weather. It's not just the warmer weather, but the colour & vibrancy that comes along with it. Winter is just way too grey for my liking (even though we've hardly had a drop of rain since April!).

Usually I start yearning for tropical spaces, filled with salty air, colour and warmth, but this year is different. This year, there is a new yearning in my heart and it's for a place that up until now, I'd never given much thought to. I'm talking about Palm Springs, and the more I look into the place the more my mouth is dropping at just how cool their design style is. A combination of glam mid-century and bright, vibrant colours give Palm Springs life like nothing else. It's young, it's fresh and it's playful - what more could you want for a summer holiday paradise?

Speaking of holidays, I always love to bring home a little piece of each destination with me when it's time to leave. It's one of the best ways to create an innovative interior, and each piece will serve as a beautiful memoir. With these spaces, I could happily take home each and every room, but something tells me I could also create this look with pieces found a little closer to home. Take a look at my tips below for how you can create a Palm Springs paradise in your own living room.

Coloured glass & Desert hues. The colour scheme of this room looks to be inspired from desert hues and summery sun sets. Using the bright, white as a canvas, this space is light, airy and fun. I love how the look has been achieved with the coloured glass and black accents.

Add a statement. Nothing says "Palm Springs" quite like a statement cactus. Usually, we see these outside, more than in, but they are a perfect indoor plant choice - especially if you struggle to keep plants alive. The cacti and other succulents in this room work beautifully to incorporate the Palm Springs vibe, even without using bright colour.

White on White -  This look never fails, but here it has been further enhanced with the pops of yellow and mix of patterns, shapes and textures. It really gives this space a sense of presence and elegance.

Speaking of mixing it up... Mix up textures, with bright colours and natural timbers. The timber bed-head used here is perfect and simply divine, and don't get me started on that lamp and side table! I could just package up the whole room.
