This week I’ve been in Palm Springs for Spring Break, staying with some friends who rented a house. I’ve always heard about this place being the mecca for mid-century modern design, and now I know why.
We’re staying in a neighborhood called DeepWell, and many of its homes show original mid-century architecture. There is also evidence of updates, some that stay within the genre and others that decidedly don’t!
I especially love all the pops of color on doors and mailboxes.
These homeowners have a plethora of new and vintage mid-century stores to choose from when furnishing their homes–all found in the Uptown Design District, along North Palm Canyon Drive.
One of my favorites is Just Modern, which showcases a great selection of original and replica art representing the 1950s-1970s.
Another fun stop is SHAG, the first retail store and gallery dedicated exclusively to the artist SHAG.
SHAG’s art depicts groovy scenes from the era.
I was happy to see Pelago here too.
The owners also have a much smaller store in Oakland right by my house, so it was fun to see their larger assortment here in Palm Springs.
If you’re interested in a stay here, check out Mod Mansions for rental information.
