It’s not too late to join thousands of midcentury design fanatics as they flock to Palm Springs for Modernism Week next month. What used to be local architectural preservation convention has evolved into something of an international cultural phenomenon. Join de LaB as we head on our annual desert design adventure for a door tour and an afternoon in a beautiful Desert Eichler.
Palm Springs Door Tour, Sunday, February 19 at 11:30am – $20 (does not include bike rental)
Ever wonder where that iconic pink door is located, the one that you see all over Instagram? Palms Springs Style is curating the first-ever Door Tour that will explore the Indian Canyons neighborhood and its iconic and colorful doors. Docents at each stop will tell us a bit about the homes’ architecture and history. Snap photos and post them on Instagram for a chance to win a Palm Springs getaway and other cool prizes. Bring your own bike OR rent one in advance by contacting Bike Palm Springs at 760-832-8912. After the bike ride, we’ll all end up at The Saguaro for cocktails by the pool. The ticket includes the cocktails.
