Ah, gorgeous, gorgeous Palm Springs - we’re obsessed! Those amazing mid-century homes! The desert destination! The palm trees! We can’t get enough. This week, the stylish US town celebrates Modernism Week, an annual celebration of all things mid-century. And while we couldn’t make it this year, we’re still determined to celebrate, with this carefully curated inspo page - a tribute to modernist architecture and design.
Oh, and if you’ve got a mid-century home - what are you waiting for? Get renovating, and restore that beauty to its former glory!
