So, I realize I’m super behind on sharing all my Europe pictures buuuut….one thing at a time. Since it was more recent and there is a lot less of them I thought I would share some of the Palm Springs photos first and then get to the Europe ones throughout the next few weeks.
Palm Springs was pretty much what I had imagined but more…surreal. People kept commenting on how it looked like straight out of the movies which made me think someone would just come out and suddenly yell “CUT” or one of the palm trees would deflate because it’s actually just a fake prop. I guess that goes together nicely with my biggest take away from designervaca, we are all faking it.
I didn’t really do much research on Palm Springs as I was pretty sure I was going to be strictly at the Ace Hotel all weekend. I’m used to the green and forestry British Columbia mountains and did not expect to see any in Palm Springs. Little did I know that Palm Springs is right at the bay of the mountains – these being rocky and dry, however still very impressive.
I’d love to go back to the Palm Springs area one day and go on a little road trip throughout the desert. The landscape was so plain and monotone. Although it may sound boring I felt it was actually a rather inspiring and refreshing emptiness compared to the usual cluttered city life.
Below are a few photos taken at the Ace Hotel. For more Palm Springs photos you can scroll through my instagram feed or search for hashtag #designervaca which all of us used throughout the weekend.
