Travel Diaries: Home Tour Inspiration

Our travels are always a source of inspiration for us. From European cities to beach towns down south, we are always able to find something that sparks our imagination. This spring, we toured some homes in Palm Springs, CA and Sea Island, GA. Below are some of our favorite pictures of colorful homes across the US.

Palm Springs, CA

Our first stop was Palm Springs for Modernism Week. A celebration of midcentury design, where we saw a lot of color and poolside gathering spots. Here, blue and orange lounge chairs set us the perfect spot for working on your tan or delving into your summer beach read.


Get creative and embroider your beach (or pool) towels with your address instead of your name! This family also used a bar cart to store and display their towels.

This Kate Spade-designed entryway in the Villa Golightly is very chic. Color and pattern help create a welcoming mood as guests enter the home.

The living room in the Christopher Kennedy Compound is all about layering your lighting from top to bottom.

This closet designed by Joy Cho puts one of our favorite ideas into practice: small spaces are perfect for punchy wallpapers and lacquered furniture.

The Christopher Kennedy Compound had several outdoor seating areas that looked just as refined and styled as the indoor spaces. Use bright pillows and decorative items to bring the inside out.

Why not hang art outside? This Gray Malin print brings a piece of the beach to the desert.

Sea Island, GA

This Sea Island home, designed by Parker Kennedy Living, was a blue and white dream. From modern prints to Chinoiserie, this home had all of our favorites!

Orange is a fun, unexpected color to mix into a blue and white theme.

This dining room set up pulls together so many of our favorite patterns and coastal touches. Mixing animal print and Chinoiserie patterns on bright blue dining room chairs is a win in our book.

Upstairs, a green bedroom embraces oriental details and graphic patterns.

Happy exploring!
