Palm Springs

Bring out the Wearstler in me and ship me off to Palm Springs! Now this is my favorite place to look for home decor. I even dress up for the occasion! I get all into it. Whip out my fancy sunglass and my favorite handbag, put on a chic outfit and hit the spots.

I definitely suggest taking 2 days to do it, the guys that work in many of these shops love, love, love to chit chat, and sometimes you end up in a store for an extra hour or so shooting the sh...

I have some amazing recommendations! Please feel free to contact me should you need further suggestions.

Where to stay:
The Riviera -- they just had a major renovation - it's pretty sick.
Parker - Decor is done by Jonathan Adler
The Viceroy - Decor is done by Kelly Wearstler (need I say more)
Ace - new hotel. Great rates on rooms, and chic decor. And they have free bike rentals.

Shopping/Antiquing:
-Bon Vivant -- 457 N. Palm Canyon #3 760-534-3197.
call in advance to make sure they are open. They have amazing accessories, great for finishing touches, and amazing little gold owls.
-Trina Turk Residential - 895 N. Palm Canyon Dr. 760-416-2856
Trina does fashion right. And, she does home decor right. Very Palm Springs kitschy, great colors, great fabric, I love her pillows and she also has one of those porcelain elephants I am dying for. (also - ask for cody!)
-Dazzles - 1035 N. Palm Canyon Drive Palm Springs 760.327.1446.
This place is pretty amazing and a personal favorite. Mike - the owner knows his stuff. They have great pieces!! Awesome glass collection. His glass is a little pricey - but well worth it, and his collection is unreal. He also has great tableware, bakelite, and tons and tons of costume jewelry. It's like the best attic in the world!
-Just Fabulous - haven't been yet, but it's suppose to be great!1035 N. Palm Canyon Drive Palm Springs 760.327.1446.
-A la mod - 768 NORTH PALM CANYON DRIVE .(760) 327-0707
Great Mid cnetury pieces. I definitely recommend walking in.

I have so many more! But these are some of my favorites - more to come!
