WANT SOME FUN AND FRESH INTERIOR INSPIRATION WITH LOADS OF STYLE? SHAYNNA BLAZE SHARES TIPS ON INJECTING PALM SPRINGS STYLE INTO YOUR HOME
Sunny Palm Springs in California is synonymous with style and glamour. It has influenced architecture, design and interiors since its heyday of the 1930s when Hollywood stars famously holidayed there.
It’s part old-world Hollywood elegance with a minimalist, modern side to it. Recreate the look with some of these design elements:
WHITE WITH POPS OF COLOUR
White creates a striking backdrop for a colour scheme that is either neutral or black and white. Yellow (in cooler lemon shades rather than burnt or golden yellow) is a popular accent colour, teamed with black and white. Navys and blues, teamed with lots of white and yellow, geometric prints and stripes are also a signature look.
MIX OF FINISHES
Finishes are sleek and smooth. Think marble and glass; stone teamed with timber or timber veneer, with furniture accents in metallic finishes of silver and gold and mirror. Shiny lacquered or mirrored furniture is also typical of the style.
DETAILS AND ACCENTS
The devil is in the detail in Palm Springs. From geometric or textured wallpaper designs to gold and silver accents, clocks, mirrors and oversized lamps. Modern sits comfortably alongside vintage. Don’t be afraid to mix it up.
LIVING INDOORS AND OUT
There’s a cohesive look between indoor and outdoor spaces. A palette of blues and greens creates great flow between the two. If you have a swimming pool, then a cabana with flowing fabric sides is a must, along with cushioned seating and a bright umbrella.
