What is Palm Springs style?

Inspired by the iconic desert resort city in California, Palm Springs style is characterised by clean lines, minimalist decor, and the seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Rooted in mid-century modernism, this design ethos emphasises the use of natural materials to create a sense of continuity between the interior and exterior of the home. The result? A space that feels spacious, open, and effortlessly stylish.

Five key tips for achieving Palm Springs style

Ready to transform your home into a Palm Springs-inspired oasis? Here are five essential tips to help you achieve the look.

1.   Maximise natural light

To achieve the light-filled atmosphere synonymous with Palm Springs style, prioritise natural light in your home. Consider installing larger windows or sliding glass doors to flood your living spaces with sunlight. If you’re planning a remodel, explore the possibility of adding skylights or expanding existing windows to bring in even more natural light. In return, you’ll create a welcoming and inviting atmosphere that epitomises the Palm Springs aesthetic.

2.   Design with minimalist landscaping

When it comes to landscaping, simplicity is key in capturing the essence of Palm Springs style. Opt for low-maintenance plants like succulents, cacti, and palms that thrive in warmer climates. Arrange your garden with clean, geometric lines and incorporate minimalist features such as rocks and sand for a sleek and modern look. Metricon’s Las Palmas facade perfectly complements this landscaping approach, with its elegant vertical timbers and minimalist design elements that evoke the classic Palm Springs aesthetic.

3.   Incorporate iconic mid-century furnishings

Furnish your home with pieces that pay homage to the mid-century modern era, a defining influence of Palm Springs style. Look for furniture with clean lines, sleek silhouettes, and organic shapes that evoke the spirit of the 1950s and 1960s. Opt for materials like wood and metal that complement the natural surroundings and contribute to the overall aesthetic. Metricon’s Vantage display home at Skyridge in Worongary, Queensland showcases how these furniture choices can come together to create a space that exudes Palm Springs sophistication.

4.   Use natural and textured materials

Embrace the use of natural and textured materials throughout your home to enhance its Palm Springs-inspired ambience. Consider incorporating stone countertops, wooden panels, or terrazzo flooring to add depth and character to your living spaces. These materials not only bring the outdoors inside but also add warmth and tactile appeal to your home’s design. By integrating natural and textured materials, you’ll create a cohesive and inviting environment that reflects the essence of Palm Springs.

5.   Create seamless indoor-outdoor living

Palm Springs homes are renowned for their seamless integration of indoor and outdoor living areas, blurring the boundaries between the two. To achieve this effect in your own home, design spaces that flow effortlessly from inside to outside. Consider installing expansive sliding doors or establishing outdoor living spaces equipped with amenities such as kitchens and dining areas tp encourage alfresco entertaining and relaxation. By creating a seamless indoor-outdoor experience, you’ll elevate your home to a true Palm Springs-inspired oasis where indoor comfort meets outdoor tranquility.

By following these tips, you can easily transform your home into a Palm Springs-inspired oasis. And with the help of Metricon, bringing this vision to life is easier than ever. Check out their Las Palmas facade to see how it perfectly embodies the Palm Springs style.
