Palm Springs is that beautiful designer Californian getaway for the rich and famous, about an hour drive out of Los Angeles. The Mid Century Modern is characteristic of that area and responds very well to the strong light and the harsh weather conditions of the desert environment. The Palms Springs style is becoming a popular choice also in Australia and for practical reasons as well as for its great looks. Offering a floor-plan of spacious rooms that easily links with the outside, the Palm Springs characteristic style is characterised by beautiful clean lines, an elegant minimal palette and a play on textures and visually interesting materials.
To help you understand how the Palm Springs look is achieved we have created a beautiful moodboard composed of beautiful finishes and textures. Watching the video added below will help you pinpoint the elements you should focus on to achieve this look, and for a complete list of the materials and finishes discussed in the video you can download a detailed palette, here.
I trust this video has given you all the information you need if the Palm Springs style is the one that you wish for your own home. For more house styles, stay tuned, because Brickworks has prepared an inspiring series of videos, with more in production to be added soon, to help you understand and 'Get The Look' that best responds to your building's needs and of course your taste.
