Feature in November 2013 Desert Outlook Magazine

I was very excited and flattered to be featured alongside my Airstream (The Silver Suitcase) and colleague Chris Bale of Modern Bear in the November issue of Palm Springs' Desert Outlook Magazine.  Thanks for the mention, Will Dean!

The short of it is:  The Paul Kaplan Group will be bringing my Airstream to Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles for a brokerage tour and throwing Palm Springs-style Pool Parties in these cities.  We can't help but have fun in Palm Springs.

Palm Springs Modern Committee Fall Home Tour 2013

I spent part of Saturday touring homes for PSmodcom's Fall tour, with such homes as 1961 by Home Lab, the new Dee Residence in Rancho Mirage by architect Lance O'Donnell of o2 Architecture, and a recent renovation of a rear patio unit at The Ocotillo Lodge, which was designed by Palmer and Krisel and built by the Alexanders (one of my favorite condo complexes, there are plaques with celebrity names on the doors, harking back to when it was a favorite weekend haunt of celebrities).  This one had a "Dinah Shore" in gold on the door.  The Estrella Swim club house in Indian Canyons was a crowd-pleaser.
