Desert Days Part Two: The Homes of Palm Springs

I have it all figured out now. Instead of Prozac, the world needs weekends in Palm Springs. Never in my life have I seen such a bright and beautiful city. It is truly a "happy place." It's wonderfully warm, full of colour and crowded with people from all walks of life. It is a little oasis of charm in the middle of the desert and it's worth the price of gas to get there.

You are stuck in the 1950s in Palm Springs. No doubt about it, and you'll love every minute. As I drove around the countless neighbourhoods (there are 33 in total), I couldn't stop snapping pictures of the architecture surrounding me. 

Of course one of the first houses we visited is one of the most popular on Instagram - the famous pink door of Palm Springs. With that done and dusted we hunted for more - more houses to add to our dream homes list. My camera was snapping away, left right and centre. This is a photographer's dream and I suddenly understood why every single fashion photographer has used Palm Springs as a backdrop for everything from InStyle to Vogue. This is THE place.
