It is not news that I love 70s design. Circa 1983 with the arrival of inflatable palm trees I was not too impressed by that "brown and gold decade" (although I still loved disco jams on the radio). Now that I have aged like a fine wine (but not a super fine expensive wine, hello, I am not that aged), and the 70s have settled in like a respectable, dynaimic Tawny Port, I love the complexity and minimalism of 1970s inspired design.

In California there is a lot of residual design from mid-century modern to glitterati Studio 54 glory days. I like that it is present, and accessible. There is so much of it that it is easy to stumble on a property with potential or an Egyptian Revival statue from Palm Springs.
I LOVE Palm Springs. It could be the finest thing about Southern California. I am going there over the holiday, and I will be sure to report back with some of their incredible consignment store finds. Or at least some snaps of hotel interiors.
