I was surprised to see a picture I keep on my desktop starring in the Palm Springs episode of Stay Here, an American interior design series new on Netflix. It’s a show in which a stylist (Genevieve Gordner) and a property broker (Peter Lorimer) help home owners revamp their rooms for rent into golden holiday experiences. Make over. Make money. Better quality, better value, better revenues, better futures. Sending all their kids to college. And most results are stunning.
In this episode – the most luxurious problem property I have seen so far – they put the cherry on a fabulous Palm Springs mansion; fully decorated in style, a perfect time machine, putting the guest right back in the stylish sixties. This place was only partially redesigned, the owners are period crazy and had recreated many sets already. (Sets you can translate as selfie spots or instagram backdrops.) The pool area being the absolute lift off spot of the total experience.
The picture above is a piece the owner had longed for for almost a decade, and now, after the Stay Here-team had done their magic, it was the centerpiece in their garden room, looking great. A good spot for it to hang, full circle.
