With a napping teepee (yes, you read that right), fire pit, bocce ball court, glistening pool, and lots of lounge areas, Desert Sun’s backyard is the place to be. A mid-century home at its core, it has been immaculately renovated, while still retaining unique design touches (just look at the exposed wooden ceilings). Authentic mid-century pieces mix with curated pop art and lots of rattan for a twenty-first-century boho twist, which is enough to know you are in Palm Springs, but without going over the top. You're also close to the Uptown Design District, which is always a plus.

About Palm Springs

If you’ve ever seen any of Slim Aarons’ photographs, you know what Palm Springs is about.
