a wrong turn or two

my husband and i set out for kauai last week but due to a couple metaphorical travel wrong turns ended up in palm springs. i've been before, but never when it was just this hot and just this perfect weather. and we are here at the parker palm springs which (designed by Jonathan Adler) is quirky and cheeky and just-the-right size (not a huge lumbering resort place) hotel. it is also stunning:




at night, these lanterns (which from a distance seem like regular chinese laterns seem, from up close, to be made of mother of pearl) light up all over the place:




also, you may have seen this before but check out the entrance:



a most excellent selective use of the color orange. it is pretty clear where you are supposed to go in ;)
