Palm Springs

Referencing the American mid-century architecture and inspired by the warmth of the Californian climate and arid landscapes, this interior style epitomises effortless living. It’s a little wonder why it’s becoming so popular in our Australian homes.

An homage to old Hollywood glamour, this style balances elegance, natural materials with a touch of kitsch. Stone chimneys and brick walls will add a textural element to the interior while retro styling will take you back to the groovy 60s.

Clean simple lines of the exterior hide generous, open plan living areas featuring a warm palette of soft whites mixed with dusty pinks, sage greens and ochra.

It’s all about bringing the outdoors in so make sure to incorporate breezeblocks and large floor to ceiling windows framing your desert landscaping. Palms, cacti and other drought-tolerant perennials will be perfect for a sun-filled courtyard.

Following the mid-century modern aesthetic, consider an oversized front door. You can simply stain your door but don’t be afraid to add a splash of colour to make it pop. Lastly, add the finishing touch with Gainsborough’s Omni Lock or G4 Oblong Pull Handle in either brushed satin chrome or matt black finish for a stronger visual impact.
