Now that summer has arrived, I have the desire to travel and explore. I want to see the sights and be a lounge lizard while basking in the sun. I have found the perfect spot to do this with a fabulously chic boutique hotel that was recently renovated.
Holiday House is a 28-room boutique hotel located in downtown Palm Springs. The Holiday House Palm Springs was originally built in 1951 and was a project of mid-century architectural designer Herbert W. Burns. Burns was one of the most important figures in helping to define Palm Springs modernist style, or what has now become mid-century modern. Known for a less austere approach to modernism than Frey or Lautner, Burns’ strong composition and clear lines stressed livability and humility.
Today, it has been reimagined by interior designer Mark D. Sikes and the team behind Sparrows Lodge.
The property features midcentury inspired elements combined with a communal atmosphere and whimsical edge.
The design centers around Gio Ponti inspired tile-work in the bar and artwork throughout the property including pieces by David Hockney, Roy Liechtenstein, Herb Ritts, Alex Katz and Mr. Brainwash, with a garden sculpture by Donald Sultan.
Each of the 28 guest rooms has been completely remodeled and feature Waterworks bath hardware and oversized showers along with Mark D. Sikes custom textiles, a curated artwork collection, an extensive mini bar with full selection of liquors, and Malin + Goetz bath amenities.
