Desert Dreaming


It was the hottest Hollywood hangout in the 1950s and 1960s – Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable and even JFK are said to have been regular guests. Now thanks to the talent of designer Steve Herman the new L’Horizon in Palm Springs (it’s undergone a name makeover too, it was formerly The Horizon) has us day dreaming of a little desert getaway. It’s said to be the finest remaining example of mid-century architecture in Palm Springs. This photo was taken sometime in the 1950s. Can’t you just imagine sophisticatedly lounging by the pool with a vodka martini in hand?


Well, now you can! There are 25 private bungalows, all complete with their own outside shower spread across 3 acres of luscious land. They have loaner bikes, yoga classes and guided hikes. Oh, and did we mention it’s adults only?
