Palm Springs Weekending

This post is in partnership with The Weekend House, but all opinions are my own.  Some of the links I've included may be affiliate links, which will earn me a small commission when you click on them. 

Palm Springs came across my radar a few years ago, and I immediately fell in love with the colorful & quaint city upon my first visit in 2016.  While I was there during that first visit, a man at a neighboring table at Bingo night warned me to "be careful, Palm Springs will get in your blood!".  To say he hit the nail on the head would be an understatement! 

A couple of visits later, I fell in love with the annual Palm Springs event called Modernism Week, a celebration of midcentury architecture, design, and culture.  While I was there as part of the "Mod Squad", I stayed at the gosh darn adorable Weekend House.  You can find my other recommendations around town in my Palm Springs Life Magazine Weekend Guide, but keep scrolling to see why Lucy Marie Photography & I fell so in love with The Weekend House!

Themed Rooms Abound

I love a good theme, so why not have a whole room that hightlights your favorite icon.  The Weekend House has a flamingo room, pineapple room, cactus room, and the list goes on.  I have to say I think the Flamingo room stole my heart.  That pink phone is just too much!


Games Galore

I'm always a sucker for fun and games.  One of my favorite tried and true ways to make it feel more like the weekend is to shut of the television and break out the board games!  The Weekend House made me rediscover my love for Dominoes, so I bought this adorable pair that they had in their super chic den.  They had so many cute games both indoors and out- corn hole, ping pong, you name it!  


Outdoor Haven, Check!

The best way to enjoy your vacation is to make sure you have a tranquil space to enjoy the outdoors.  In Palm Springs, a pool is a must. They had a hot tub for us to enjoy, too!  We certainly spent some good quality time living it up in this very well thought out backyard. Doesn't being surrounded by lots of green just make you so happy?! This is my kind of "great outdoors"!

Email me or get in touch on Instagram if you ever make your way to Palm Springs. I would love to help you have fun in my California happy place!  You can follow #WeekenderTravels to get even more travel inspiration, or pin this to Pinterest so you don't forget to add it to your bucket list.



Travel Tuesday: Doors of Palm Springs

In Charleston we are all about colorful homes adorned with flower boxes.  Perhaps my love for our Rainbow Row is part of what has me obsessed with the colorful doors of Palm Springs! It's not every day you see a house with a bright orange or yellow door, except in this adorable desert town.  These unexpected pops of color against the sleek retro exteriors just have me swooning.  Have a look at shots from my recent tour of the doors from the Modernism Week bike tour, or recreate it yourself with the instructions below. 

Recreate this tour in a number of ways. If you don't have a car, I would try to rent a bike and have it dropped off at The Saguaro.  From there you take S. Sunrise Way/La Verne to S. Toledo.  Make a right on East Sierra from there.  Whether you're biking or in a car, start at 1100 East Sierra Way to see #thatpinkdoor, and then head to the two lions just down the street (toward S. Camino Real). Make a left on S. Camino Real, and from there you can explore S. Alhambra & S. Yosemite.
