A colourful tour of Palm Springs

Colourful tour of Palm Springs. 

If you have been following me on Instagram, you would have seen that I was away in Palm Springs and LA over February. I love colour hunting on my travels. Palm Springs was a dream to photograph, so I thought I’d show you a colourful tour of Palm Springs.

The photo above is the Saguaro Palm Springs hotel. I’m sure you’ll agree with me that it is a colourful visual feast. Must have been so fun painting this place. I haven’t shown a photo of my bedroom here, but believe me it was all very pink.Here is an external wall of the Saguaro. The graduated pastel hues and pretty palm patterns are super cute.I just adore all the candy colours. See how the palette of pink changes to orange and then yellow. It was so wonderful to see blue skies in February compared to the grey and cold of London then.Balloons always make things prettier don’t they? These were by Geronimo balloons.Check out those floats. I was actually in Palm Springs attending a blog conference called Alt Summit, and many of the attendees brought their floats, so that we could all take photos.

Now for a little bit of exploration outside the Saguaro.This is the iconic orange door of the Parker Palm Springs.

Palm Springs is Instagram door heaven. I will be showing you more below.The interior of the Parker was super stylish, all designed by the renowned interior designer, Jonathan Adler.Love the sunshine yellow of the Lemonade bar at the Parker.Here’s another inviting pool waiting for me to jump into.Now for the door tour of colourful Palm Springs. There were so many beautiful doors, I couldn’t stop snapping. All these doors were just a five minute drive away from the Saguaro hotel.Many of the houses were bungalows, one level living homes.

I’m not sure whether they were built like this because of earthquakes or whether it was the trend of the 1950s to 70s. Palm Springs have also been a popular place to retire to, so one level living may have been popular for older people who have moved there. Here is the famous pink door of Palm Springs. A curious neighbour asked us why so many people had been photographing this door. I explained to her about Instagram. She told me that once someone got knocked over by a car, whilst photographing this door on the road. The lengths we go to, to get the perfect picture.Such a pretty Turquoise colour.and one in Emerald green.I could have spent hours just looking at these beautiful doors. I wish I could take a tour inside these houses. Are you curious too?Hope you have enjoyed my colourful tour of Palm Springs. I will show you my photos of LA soon.

Wishing you a happy start to your weeks.

      Thank you Rachel. There isn’t actually anyone living behind that pink door according to the neighbour, although I’d be interested to see the inside. x
