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?
