 Here’s a cool spot for discerning mid-century enthusiasts and desert rats planning their annual fall and winter escapes to Palm Springs.

Maybe you’ve heard of it, or stayed there, but the iconic desert hideaway aka The Desert Hot Springs Motel underwent a major makeover and resurfaced as a chic, four suite boutique property called Hotel Lautner.   Los Angeles based interior designer Tracy Beckmann of Tracy Beckman Design and furniture designer Ryan Trowbridge of Brown + Trowbridge purchased the famed modernist architect John Lautner’s mid-century gem (built in 1947) and spent 3 ½ years working on the facelift.

All feature high end appointments, vintage modern furniture, luxurious baths, contemporary kitchens, private gardens,  spa pool and outdoor lounge areas.

Located in Desert Hot Springs, about a 2 hour drive from Los Angeles, the Hotel Lautner appeals to a metropolitan sensibility, with contemporary creature comforts such as Frette linens, L’Occitane bath products, induction cook tops, TV/DVD, free WiFi and iPhone docks.

  Sculptor Rik Phillips Exhibits At Savage Gallery’s “Super Show” Palm Springs contemporary sculptor Rik Phillips has amassed an impressive variety of patrons of the arts clients, including Barbara Streisand, as well as being part of the permanent art collection of business tycoon Armand Hammer. The talented Mr. Phillips is also eclectic in his wide range of sculpting styles -- from the wildly “retro-futuristic” such as the “Biomutants” series to the delicately crafted “old world” reproductions of everyday objects carved from wood to massive metal abstract public works such as the sculpture seen on prestigious El Paseo Drive in Palm Desert. He also had the good fortune to meet and work with Internationally-know sculptor Alexander Calder. Phillips will reveal never-before-seen works at the upcoming Savage Gallery’s “Savage Super Show” event. Portion of the event’s proceeds will benefit The Mizell Senior Center. Sponsored by PalmSpringsArtHome.com. “Rik’s Phillips is a high-profile, well-established artist,” explains Savage, the owner of the gallery. “The obvious versatility, craftsmanship and integrity in the work reflect the qualities of the artist who created them.”
