Summer Style Guide: Palm Springs Chic in 5 Steps

RSS
With Memorial Day weekend just a few days away, summer is finally here and we are READY for some well deserved sun and fun. Get us to Palm Springs, stat!

If you can't make it to the famous hotspot for Hollywood celebrities and the like, you're in luck- you can get it at home! The home design trend sweeping the nation this season is Palm Springs Chic, and it perfectly embodies all that we love about summer: beautiful lounging weather with lush, green trees, bright colors and patterns, and midcentury modern design while you sunbathe in style. Get your fix of summer lavishness with a palm springs design in your home all year round. 




Now how do you get your apartment to look like a modern day summer pad from the luxe era of Sinatra and Monroe without feeling too *old*? We're glad you asked! It's all laid out in our Palm Springs Chic Summer Guide!

1. MAKE IT COLORFUL... BUT KEEP IT WHITE HOT

Bright colors can make a bold statement, but they don't have to go over the top with the right mix of neutral shades and pops of color. Using pieces like white side chairs and lamps that have a gorgeous design but simple colors mixed with bold colored sofas and toss pillows can do just that.

 

2. GET SOME WOOD

Sturdy and handsome, wood bases are also a #MCM lover's dream (Mid Century Modern, not Man Crush Monday...although we like that too!). Well-crafted wood furniture can add in the right amount of masculine balance for the look.

3. MIX IN GOLD ACCENTS

Gold can be the perfect finishing touch for a room- get a coffee table with gold leg accents, a toss pillow with gold fabric, or even a rose gold side table to bring the whole room together. 


4. ADD VINTAGE PATTERNS AND SHAPES

Patterns that evoke the 60s, like the CELEBRATION Credenza by Fimbis can be a great accent piece to give your home style and vintage flair. Diagonal stripes, geometric patterns, and classic shapes are the best bet when you're looking to add this type of look to your room.

 

   

 

 

5. MIDCENTURY MODERN FURNITURE = PERFECTLY PALM SPRINGS

Midcentury design is the heart and soul of Palm Springs living, so adding in MCM accents or larger pieces are the perfect way to get the desert throwback look. New pieces with retro flair help to make sure that your home doesn't look or feel too dated, but just right. Try our Logan Apartment Size Sofa in Mountain Grey, our Carson Sofa in a bold Pink Lemonade, or our Monroe 3 Piece Sectional in Ocean Blue to make your living room a MCM showstopper.
