A weekend at the Parker Palm Springs is the perfect way to check out of normal life and check into a life of glamour, sunshine and relaxation!  It’s been a longtime favorite of mine for it’s beautiful design (by none other than Jonathan Adler himself), stunning grounds and amazing spa.  Last weekend my husband, our two dogs and I spent a weekend there enjoying every last minute of it and, as photographers are wont to do, snapping photos all the while.   So happy to be sharing a bit from our stay below!

We stayed in one of the Parker’s amazing villas and once inside it was easy to forget that anything else in the world ever existed. Our villa had an impeccably decorated living room, bedroom, and patio. And with the two pups in tow it was especially nice to have all the space to spread out and settle in. It truly felt like our own little home for the weekend- a glamorous, cozy, and extra-fun home, of course. I’m officially obsessed with the white brick walls, colorful textiles and that hanging chair!

There are three places we preferred to practice our deep relaxation techniques at the Parker: poolside with cocktails, napping in hammocks tied between palm trees and of course, at the stately “PSYCH” spa.  Does it sound like I’m describing heaven?  I kind of am.  Specifically a heaven that also has a lemonade stand that will bring you drinks and snacks while you work on your tan and relaxation.  Yes, indeed!  To see more of this amazing property (including the bananas-amazing lobby) head on over to my blog, A House in the Hills.
