If you've not yet been to the new Raymond|Lawrence space on North Palm Canyon Drive in the Uptown Design District in Palm Springs, you're missing out!  Among all the great vendors there, The Paul Kaplan Modern Real Estate Group also has a 'mod shack' kiosk there with open house guides, flyers for midcentury modern homes, a realtor on site to answer your questions, and books and maps that hightlight Palm Springs' rich architectural resources.  It's located at 830 N Palm Canyon Drive.

Palm Springs Car Wash

I do love going to the car wash in Palm Springs several times a week.  You never know what will pop up.  This '61 Chrysler Newport is dreamy. 

Palm Springs Designer Avanti to be Auctioned

The personal Avanti of Raymond Loewy will be auctioned off by Bonhams on May 11.  Legend has it that this car was designed on a cocktail napkin by Mr. Loewy while in Palm Springs.  Who says you can't mix business and pleasure?  This is the second Avanti belonging to Loewy to be auctioned off in the past few months.  This particular vehicle resided at Loewy's Parisienne address.

Rooms from Yesterday's House of Tomorrow

Is anything better than looking at old idea books for home design.  Does anything current look newer than these designs do?

Desert Lounge Tour; Courtesy Cocktail Lounge

Tickets are selling fast for the first event for The Desert Lounge Tour.  Our first stop will be  May 26 at The Courtesy Cocktail Lounge in Blythe. Part of the Googie architectural movement, The Courtesy was built in 1964 and retains a remarkable amount of its original finishes.  Now that the I-10 has passed Blythe by, the Courtesy does not get the same traffic that it used to.

Join us for a swinging good evening at The Courtesy Cocktail Lounge!  Ticket price includes Transportation to and from Blythe (with fun and games on the bus a go-go), Appetizers, Two Cocktails, Dinner, Dessert, Coffee, and Entertainment by The Gand Band.  Tickets are $80 per person, click on the link below to purchase.
