It’s Palm Springs Modernism Week, so that means my Instagram feed is full of amazing midcentury modern houses perched atop desert landscapes. One of my favorites is the low-slung Edris House, designed in 1954 by architect E. Stewart Williams.

The rainbow-hued Saguaro Hotel aside, I love the classic midcentury Palm Springs look: stark, minimalist exteriors that blend seamlessly into the desert landscape. Even if you don’t live in a historic 1950s masterpiece,  you can bring the desert minimalism inside. I love how designer Lori Dennis created this hotel-inspired master suite that features bright white walls, dark wood furniture and trim and blue and green accents. There’s even a bedside cactus!

We’ll, I’ve admitted my midcentury modern design obsession. Do you go for the minimalist look, too?

  1. OMG this bedroom really looks amazing & spacious, though the outdoor may not be that classy with Edris House but yes the interior is authentic & way too classy. Specially the mix & match of wooden interior is truly giving extra zeal & warm feel.

    Yes, indeed, Palm Springs is a hotbed of Mid-Century Modernism madness this week and I'm lucky enough to live right in the thick of it!

    Edris House is one of many Mid-Century Modern landmarks that are a joy to see, whether it's a drive by and admire visit or the place you call home.

    And for Mid-Century Modernism Week, visitors have been treated to sunshine, blue skies and temps in the 80's. It doesn't get much better than this!

    Thanks for the shout-out, Liz. http://blog.hgtv.com/design/2014/02/18/modern-bed
