How to create a Palm Springs inspired bedroom

I’ve always been a sucker for Palm Springs inspired interiors; it’s the perfect balance between being bright and colourful whilst also being glamorous and chic.

Sunny Palm Springs in California has influenced architecture, design and interiors ever since its heyday of the 1930s when Hollywood celebrities famously holidayed there, and these days the look is still very much alive through the works of American designers Kelly Wearstler and Jonathon Adler.

The style comprises a vibrant mix of hot pinks, minty turquoises and fresh greens with gold or brass accents, tropical greenery (think fiddle leaf figs or indoor palm trees), bold geometric prints, colourful photography and plenty of sculptural and Art Deco inspired furniture thrown in the mix – heaven.

It’s part old-world Hollywood elegance with a minimalist, modern side to it with nice clean lines.

As it’s quite a bold look, it would suit a guest bedroom perfectly as it might overwhelm a little for your regular resting space. I’ve been meaning to tackle our guest bedroom for ages as we’ve been using it as a dumping ground (it’s full to the brim with Christmas decorations, ski gear, drum kits and piles of clothes we no longer wear), so when Wayfair asked me to select a few of my favourite picks from their website it was the perfect opportunity to have a little think about our guest bedroom at the same time!

I’ve introduced a little of this style already through various Slim Aarons photography around the house (including his infamous Poolside Gossip print), which makes my space feel happy and summery all year round – even on the grayest and coldest of days.
