INTERIOR INSPO: A DOSE OF PALM SPRINGS DECOR

posted by Elshane on May 18 2015, under Home Decor/Entertaining

Call it the War of the West... two hotels side by side, each designed by two of our home decor world's greatest and most individually unique artists, Jonathan Adler vs. Kelly Wearstler. Here, we have The Parker Palm Springs vs. The Avalon Palm Springs.

The Parker can thank Jonathan Adler for their 2004 re-design, a luxe bohemian oasis with a mix of global design influences —  Peruvian weavings and Edwardian chairs. You can spot pieces from his own collection every so often, like his famous Muse sculptures.

The Avalon (originally The Viceroy but with a recent name change) has Kelly Wearstler written all over it, when she brought her classic Hollywood Regency glamour straight to the desert. Black and White geometric walls are splattered with punches of citron and framed with sculptural trees.

Since my own home is a sanctuary of both Adler and Wearstler, it was hard to pick a winner.

But I did. The Parker. 

Enjoy photos of both hotels. I hope you can guess which photos are which hotel! Hint-- anything black, white, and citron is The Avalon (aside from The Parker's life-sized outdoor chess game), everything else is The Parker!
