Mid-century modern is a trend that’s here to stay. You can thank “Mad Men” or our parents’ hand-me-downs, but either way, this style has taken up residence in homes across America. Nowhere is that more apparent than in Palm Springs. In fact, in Palm Springs, mid-century modern styling isn’t a return to anything; it’s honoring a style that never really left.
Palm Springs has historically attracted a huge range of stars, from Frank Sinatra to Liberace. And who can blame them for choosing this spot? The warm weather, palm-lined streets and myriad of pools make it quintessential Southern California. Although it’s been decades since the Rat Pack called it home, Palm Springs still embodies that nostalgic mid-century glamour.
Today, the area celebrates its fashionable heritage in a number of ways, from flat-roofed homes to Modernism Week in the fall. If you’re looking for some of the best mid-century architecture and decor in the country, look no further than this desert community.
