Seeking Shades Under The Palms
Travel inspires us, whether visiting a local spot that brings charm and life to our hometown, Las Vegas, or exploring somewhere far away. Every new place and face is a teacher filling our hearts and our creative well to power up and pull from for our next project. Color is a constant in design, and what better way to catalog our travels than to pull unique palettes from each nook of the world we visit?
Palm Springs was such a treasure for a weekend. Tucked at the bottom of a mountain’s edge, this picturesque palm-strewn desert oasis sprung to life for one of my best gal pals and me. With incredible food, street art, and quirky places to browse or have a cocktail, it’s no wonder that the city has been an escape for A-list celebrities. I was not sure what to expect from this city but was pleasantly surprised to find it filled to the brim with heart.
…And one just because. Amidst all its other wonders Palm Springs hosts a pretty amazing zoo with an African exhibit where you can feed giraffes. Swoon!
Till next time!
