The Trend Bible for the UK has predicted Palm Springs Style as being a major influence in the UK for the color palette in a range of household products from towels to disposable napkins as well as home furnishings and paint colors! As residents of snazzy Palm Springs, we already knew that we were trendsetters!

We love area rugs, and just changing one out can really make a room come alive:
Slab by Michal Kopaniszyn for Moho Design, Poland is a beautiful rug made from pure wool. Pachamama and Cell DSGN conspired on the Eclipse collection of area rugs that have a single element in common, circles and more circles. Domestic Modern has a huge selection of modern style rugs, and we love this one with a large graphic bird design.

Totally digging the Lilly Pulitzer Collection by Lee Jofa! Looks fabulous in this urban-ish setting at High Point, but it would be right at home in Southern California! Very cheery, retro, and up-to-the-minute at the same time!

Grasscloth has never taken a hiatus in the desert, and for good cause, it's durable, ages well, and really dresses up a room! Some of our favorite new patterns are from a recent collection from Phillip Jefferies- called appropriately enough- "Fashionista."

Liven up your summer by adding accessories in porcelain white and bright colors.
These accents can bring the lively, cheerful colors of summer into your favorite room. There are a variety of well-priced accent pieces that can add seasonal zip for summer. We decorate for the holiday season, why not for the summer season? Try a bright white bowl filled with colorful fruit like bright yellow lemons or green granny smiths.
Vases, photo frames, servicing trays are all great ways to bring bright accents into your space. Keep accent items small and in groupings or use one or two large bright pieces to add focal accents. White is a great “non-color” to work with as other colors can be added to it to suit the season and décor of your room.
My favorite stop on the Alexander Weekend home tour (though I may be biased because I live in it) was on Laverne Way. I really had fun with this house using so much orange inside and out. My favorite thing in the living room is the amazing Kyle Bunting laser-cut cowhide area rug. It looks spectacular in this great house! The great thing about this particular Alexander home is that it has such a large master bedroom and so many clerestory windows.
Have an unfinished home remodel project? Something that you "let slide" last year? You'll be suprised at how much custom design you can afford: our newest interior design clients in Rancho Mirage are getting a new guest bathroom- for under $7500.00! This includes custom vanity cabinet, color and tile selection, and white-glove project management with the security of a professional design team behind their remodel project. We love remodel projects- seeing a homeowner in love with their house again is a great feeling!
