Monochromatic Monday :: Palm Springs

March 21st, 2011

Warm weather has arrived here in Austin, and I find myself craving a little getaway where I can don a bikini and sip mai tai’s by a pool. Perhaps that’s why I’m relishing the opportunity to plan a Palm Springs-inspired book launch bash for one of my fave clients this month, complete with midcentury geometric prints and a punchy color palette of grass green, lemon and tangerine. I’m envisioning desert-inspired florals, hipsters perching on acapulco chairs, and a seasonal menu brimming with citrus flavors. Sounds almost as good as hopping on a plane…
