It’s no secret that I’m a serious Instagrammer, its the perfect platform for me. I’ve been doing photography forever. When I was a little girl I would highly inappropriately dress and style my barbie dolls, (hey it was the eighties) and use my 110 film barbie camera for photo shoots. I even met the love of my life in Photography class. I can’t even begin to describe what was going on while we were developing our 35-millimeter film in the darkroom! Now that the days of developing in the darkroom are over, I’m so glad there’s now an outlet for me … Instagram! Now I just appropriately style myself take a pic and post it on social media. I recently spent the week in Palm Springs and made a cheat sheet of “instalocations”. It goes like this…
The Saguaro Hotel 1800 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, CA 92264……Check out the Saguaro Hotel for mass amounts of color and geometrics.
The Parker Hotel 4200 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, The Parker is one giant “instalocation”. The facade is classic Palm Springs while the interior offers a plethora of design from mid-century to uber-glam, to glam hipster chic.
The Ace Hotel, 701 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, Ca 92264, The Ace Hotel is way fun with so many backdrops. Check out the Amigo Room. I’ve been around the world and the Amigo Room left an impression. The best way I can describe it is sexy in a tacky but completely appropriate fun way almost like it would be a bar in a seventies home of a porn Kingpin.
The Avalon Hotel 415 S Belardo Rd, Palm Springs, Ca 92262, check out the yellow doors and white and yellow geometry of the entrance. Turn left at the pool and keep walking until the black and white tent then Instagram away.
The Cabazon Dinosaurs are also a great “instalocation”. They are a bit outside of Palm Springs about a half hour. 50770 Seminole Dr, Cabazon, Ca 92230 “Tell um Large Marge sent um!” Yup! Remember that movie? Pee Wee’s big adventure? The Cabazon Dinosaurs are the dinosaurs from the movie.
There are also many great murals around the city, check out …
