Palm Springs Paradise

I know I should be posting about Christmas but I couldn't help but post the photos of my friend David Jimenez's Palm Springs mid-century paradise. He keeps suggesting that I come out for a little vacation and after seeing the photos, I just make have to book a flight. I love the pops of color and interesting details. David is great at layering and creating atmosphere and as I know first hand, a wonderful host and great shopping partner. Enjoy the photos. I'm off to check the airline schedules!

I love the bed with the yellow bed lamps. It looks like it's in a little cubby. So cozy. I want that! Actually all of it. Quite a lovely home.

Don't you just love those gas fireplaces now that they look like this one? And no stinky smoke! Great snaps!

Heather, how do you scan so many great pics? Do you use a flat bed scanner or are you cutting up all of your books? I have a feed scanner, so I could not scan anything bound. I am thinking about doing something uber chic like your site, but from a San Francisco angle.

Anyway, happy holidays!

Have a great weekend in the sun. !!!!

For all of you who are not invited by David I can recommend this little hotel which is really stylish and affordable http://www.moviecolonyhotel.com/gallery.aspx?s=rooms&i=7. I stayed there on my way to Vegas last fall. Great!

His work is gorgeous. He is one of my favorite designers. If I were you, I wouldn't give it another thought and would take the next flight to Palm Springs!

I would love to step into those rooms everyday.
So simple. Uncluttered. So much light! Sigh.
