Airstream Dreams And Oh Yeah….Modernism Week

This week is “Modernism Week” in Palm Springs and among the events and home tours we are attending, my most favorite so far is the Vintage Trailer show.

It’s a secret dream of mine to own an Airstream trailer.  I was never an RV kind of gal, but this is more an “art studio on wheels” kind of dream.

Rolling through the U.S., visiting other artists, seeing their studios and video taping interviews . . . yep.  That’s the BIG dream.  BIG!

Included in the show were dozens of Airstreams – big and small, stripped down with furniture set in them or completely decked out with built in everything.  I love ’em all.

Clearly, the trend is to do a retro inspired interiors – but my most favorite was the one above – very feminine and French.

Mine would be a tribal or safari inspired interior – just saying’.

Here’s a few other trailer shots.

As for other Modernism Week events we attended, cocktails at Liberace’s was very cool!

The home has been completely remodeled since Liberace lived there, but I love how they incorporated many of his things into their decor.

We also attended a walking home tour of one of the older neighborhoods.  Famous mid-century architecture is a kick!  Many of the homes were completely original with decor to match.  Sunken living rooms, huge brass sliding doors, 30 foot long wet bars and pools – always pools!  Very Mad Men.  Others were updated and swank.

But always always, the way way to cool off in the Desert is with a pink drink…..
