What I Wore: The Saguaro Palm Springs

The Saguaro Palm Springs

During my recent stay in Palm Springs, I made a point to visit The Saguaro . Named after the iconic cactus of the Sonoran Desert, The Saguaro is a rainbow-colored modern desert masterpiece. Color takes center stage both inside and out and no detail is too small — air conditioners are even painted to match the room’s color schemes and pool towels are blazing pink.

As we explored the hotel grounds, the pool area was quite lively and being surrounded by a spectrum of color (rumor has it that you can request a specific room color depending on your mood) made the experience even better. The set of 12 colors featured throughout the hotel grounds are said to be based off native desert wildflowers. They follow the light spectrum, which creates different perspectives of the hotel according to the time of day.

I’ve seen The Saguaro on so many travel & lifestyle blogs over the last year — it was pretty surreal to visit and I love the full-on boldness of the colors throughout. Just check out those striped bed spreads! Find out more about The Saguaro here.

Teenage Engineering

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I came across the site of Swedish inventors and synth-makers Teenage Engineering. The modern yet toy-like styling of their OP-1 Portable Synthesizer and the aesthetic of their overall site was an oddly enticing mix of 80s-infused design and Japanese pop culture.

Though the company’s inventions feature a toy-like appearance, they are actually quite advanced; beneath the candy colored buttons and bold type on the OP-1 is a professional grade synth.

You can also add a number of accessories to your synth, from cranks to carrying cases, all available in the store! If your mind isn’t blown yet, check out their other inventions, most notably the Absolut Choir below, which features a 22 piece robotic singing choir!
