Hotel Lust: The Parker Palm Springs

Its already Monday afternoon here in Dakar. While I've still got some France-themed posts up my sleeve, I've been itching to do some actual writing around these parts, and yet inspiration escapes me. As I've alluded to over the past couple weeks, I've felt a bit flat recently, especially since returning from my family-filled French escapade. I've gotta get out of this creative funk!

Perusing inspiring interiors (and concocting design plans) is one sure-fire way to get my creative juices flowing again. I've mentioned it before, but I have a great love for interior design. I might even have a chance to help decorate a new restaurant in Dakar. Will let you all know if it pans out ;)

I stumbled upon my latest decor inspiration while doing some wedding research...

Back up. My high school/college bestie is getting married next May. To say I am excited is an understatement! 1) I witnessed first hand their blooming love story (we were college roommates at the time) 2) I love Emily and Mike 3) I love planning and 4) I have a somewhat strange affinity for weddings and wedding planning. I swear I'm not "one of those girls." Or maybe I am?? ;)

And as a result, I've been scouring the internet for visual inspiration for a Berkshires "rustic elegant" wedding. In doing so, I stumbled upon an amazing (but completely unrelated) venue, The Parker Palm Springs. I haven't done much blog research on the place, but I am fairly certain I would find a gazillion features if I did. I did do enough looking into the hotel to see it was designed by Jonathan Adler. Well, no wonder I love it! Moroccan undertones, ethnic textiles and carvings, unexpected pops of color and texture, old architecture... love it. Check out this article with lots of interesting tid bits and tips on the hotel.

I hope you too find some inspiration from the images I have rounded up :)

The lush exterior with the Moroccan chaises.... swooooooning. Via.

    1. If you love Moroccan inspired decor, then you must check out this guesthouse in Marrakech (unless you've seen it already) Peacock Pavillions: http://www.elledecor.com/design-decorate/interiors/maryam-montague-home-my-marrakesh. The owner also has an online shop with lots of Moroccan goodies, and a book with styling tips. Basically, I should be paid to promote her ;)

      Perhaps it will provide some inspiration for the decorating fiasco?! Good luck!
