Thank you so much for all your birthday wishes! You are all so sweet and I appreciate every single comment and email!
After my husband and I spent the weekend in Laguna Beach, California for my big four-o, we headed out to Palm Springs for Mark’s work event that was held at the Parker Palm Springs, the Jonathan Adler-designed Le Meridien hotel. Have you ever been there before?
To say visiting this hotel is an experience is putting it lightly!
Jonathan Adler has an online shop that describes itself as
We are dedicated to bringing style, craft, joy and a general feeling of grooviness to your home.
I would say groovy and cheeky aptly describe this mid-century modern hotel that brings to mind the likes of Austin Powers, baby!
Don’t let the traditional fountain at the entrance fool you. There was nothing traditional about this hotel that was owned by Gene Autry and Merv Griffin over the years, and is known for celebrity get-aways.
We were greeted by two knights in shining armor and comfy seating sporting Adler’s trademark needlepoint pillows, and from there the fun and colorful kookiness abounded.
Our room was modest and eclectic. The tv hails from the last century, but hey – who goes on vacation to watch tv?
