As you know, I spent this past Saturday soaking in the Palm Spring architectural goodness.  It was the start of Modernism week and since the double decker architecture tours were all sold out, B and I went on our tour.  The homes in this post are not really representative of PS Modernist Architecture but they are FAB!
 I call this the "Flintstone house" and it also reminds me of Spanish architect Gaudi and his Palau GuellGaudi did work during the Modernist or Art Nouveau period but is best known for his own creative style.  Mid century modernist in PS is way different that Art Nouveau ( I think!) but I digress... Anyway, I just loved the fun look to this casa.
 The beauty of PS architecture is how people embrace everything about the desert. They don't want to disturb the natural beauty and build homes that nestle in and don't alter the gorgeous desert landscape.
 The other cool thing that I love is all the windows.  It is a way of being part of nature and not obstructing the views, which should be part of your home enjoyment.
 PS  also has it's share of Spanish Style homes.  I personally am torn between Spanish style and the mid century modern, hopefully the sealaura stock will go up so I can have both!!
 This is the view from this particular neighborhood.  I LOVE IT!  Do you see the windmills in the distance?
How about these gorgeous boulders and the mountains?  It was a rainy day in SoCal and we were so lucky to capture the sun, the mountains, and the desert.  That, my friends is what living in California is all about!
