Happy New Year, friends – it’s been a while! The blog took a little quiet time over the holidays and start of the new year, but today we’re back with a little peek into our Palm Springs casita. (Finally!) I’ve shared our Palm Springs home here a couple of times (here, here, and here), but I’ve never shown you guys the casita, the small guest house on the property.
It was certainly one of the things we loved about the house from the start. The casita is a completely separate guest house that has a full bathroom, a small kitchen area, and an open space bedroom that features floor-to-ceiling windows and the prettiest hillside views. Those swing chairs (sold out but similar here) on the little wraparound deck are legit the best seats in the house. We loved that guests could have their own little private space, and we fully planned to make it a cozy little guest retreat.
But when we started furnishing and decorating the main house, the casita got put on the back burner, and eventually, it was kind of forgotten. It had a couple of beds for friends to crash, but that was really it. It wasn’t until last spring that I decided it needed a big refresh, and after having lunch at The Pink Cabana at The Sands Hotel (photo below), I decided to start with a wallpapered accent wall. (Or more accurately, I became OBSESSED with having a wallpapered accent wall.)
I found this blue palm print wallpaper from Think Noir, and then everything else kind of fell into place. The upholstered beds perfectly pull the lighter accent color from the walls, and we added a sleek ceiling fan for more circulation and light at night. Easy bedding, throws, pillows, an accent chair (bought second hand from a family friend), and a nightstand (from a local shop) gave the room a more comfy, cozy feel, and I really love how it turned out.
I think in the not-so-distant future we’ll have some remodel plans for this space and the Palm Springs home in general (stay tuned!), but for now, this little refresh is just what the casita needed. Hope everyone has a great rest of their week!
P.S. – Here’s a little peek at the room before – YIKES – and my wallpaper inspiration at The Pink Cabana at The Sands Hotel.
