Get A Room: Trina Turk’s Palm Springs House


Last week, we had the opportunity to spend a relaxing morning in Palm Springs brunching at the stunning desert residence of designer Trina Turk. In addition to the delicious eats and delightful company, it was the Midcentury Modern architecture, awesome retro-chic decor and expansive landscape surrounding Trina’s home that left us inspired.

Trina's house is known as The Ship of the Desert. It was built in 1936 by architects Erle Webster and Adrian Wilson and features curved walls and redwood balconies that bear resemblance to a ship's deck.
