I´m now back after a very inspiring and nice trip to California. It was lovely to get away from winter for a few days and taste the sun and warmth for a little while…
One of the main reasons I went on this trip was to attend the Modernism Week in Palm Springs. This event has been on my wishlist for a long time now, and when my friend Melissa asked if I wanted to join her, I had no doubt.
For those of you who don´t know; Modernism Week’s is an annual celebration of midcentury modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture. This exciting festival takes place in February in the Palm Springs area of Southern California. Modernism Week features more than 350 events including the Modernism Show & Sale, Signature Home Tours, films, lectures, Premier Double Decker Architectural Bus Tours, nightly parties and live music, walking and bike tours, tours of Sunnylands, fashion, classic cars, modern garden tours, a vintage travel trailer exhibition, and more.
We went to a lot of different events but one of my favorite was the Palm Springs Door Tour. On this tour we could explore the colorful and unique doors of the Indian Canyons neighborhood, but then also see all the lovely houses that had these doors. Here are some of the doors that we saw on our tour.
The most famous and photographed door in Palm Springs – “That pink door”. If you haven´t seen this door, you haven´t been to Palm Springs they say… : )
Posing in front of the doors is mandatory… haha.
