On the Sunny Side of the Street

I'm a huge fan of Desert Modern design, and was fortunate to stay in a home exemplary of the Modern Movement while vacationing in Palm Springs. I can barely work a Polaroid, but regardless, thought I'd share a few photos from the trip.
The house we stayed in was contemporary, with a deep overhang at the entrance. The back interior wall was basically entirely glass, showcasing the pool and the mountain views.
With my husband, striking a prom-pose outside our pad.
All the houses on the street were ah-mazing.
I like this regency pink door the best.

I've never seen an elevated lawn detail like this before.
I didn't snap many photos, but the house was recently sold by Christie's so I found additional shots online.
I'm absolutely in love with this front door.
Desert Modernism is noted for combining indoor and outdoor living spaces.
The objective is to highlight the mountain views (or desert valleys).
I really should have befriended the neighbors...
Movie night, anyone?
Across the street was another beauty.
A closer look at the dramatic colonnade entrance.

Can you imagine owning one of these homes? I'd need to pinch myself daily to make sure it wasn't a dream.
