Palm Springs Modernism Week
In case you're out of the loop, (Mid-Century) Modernism Week starts TOMORROW in Palm Springs with the preview show and sale at the Convention Center. The show at the convention center runs all weekend, but the great home tours, lectures, and cocktail parties are all week long and run through the 27th! I'm most looking forward to the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation's Retro Martini Party at swank Thunderbird Country Club in Rancho Mirage, where the party will be held in a home that has all of its original hardware and furnishings from 1955. Two other events not to miss are the Airstream Show and the Braniff Airlines at the Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs. One of my favorite neighborhoods, Park Imperial, will be hosting a home tour.
It's a great week to be here if you like Mid Century Modern, or just a fan of architecture or interior design! Hope to see you here!
