The Find: Warm Weather Wonder

A chilly day like today reminds me of warm destinations, such as the Palm Springs home of Jim Moore, GQ's creative director. The most lovely aspect of this house, which was photographed by Bob Greenspan for The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details, is the simplicity with which it honors its Mid Century heritage and Moore's knack for decorating with vintage and thrift.

This bedroom is a perfect example of combining old with new. The woven lamps were discovered in a tony, Parisian antiques shop and sit atop two wooden side tables that Moore picked up in a local Palm Spring thrift shop for $25. A bright Jonathan Adler pillow and an orange throw adds interest to the bed, while a Danish Modern chair rests near a colorful, braided rug.

Calm, casual and chic.

If you have a copy of The Find that you wold like me to personalize, email me your information and I'll mail you a bookplate created just for you!

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter

  1. This just bought crisp springy thoughts to me. So simple but so chic. Harry Slatkin makes a Fresh Bamboo candle for Bath and Body Works that I can see pairing nicely with this scene. Oh spring, hurry up and come already.
