The mid-century modern style informs so much of what we call 'modern' today. That's why when I was given the opportunity to be part of this year's 'Mod Squad' at the Palm Springs Modernism week, I jumped at the chance to see what's new in the world of vintage, modern style. George Kovacs Alecia's Necklace Opal Glass Wall Sconce / Splash Coral Curved Ceramic 26-Inch-H Table Lamp I was pleasantly surprised when so many of the lighting pieces I saw at both the hotels and the vintage expos were clean and modern, but also had some of that quirky character that I love to incorporate in my own designs. Modern Lights Up! Meridian Nickel with White Table Lamp /  Jana Brass with Marble 26-Inch-H Arteriors Desk Lamp /  Eleganza Starburst Gold Leaf 22-Inch-H Wall Mirror All of the stained glass at the Saguaro Hotel was perfectly complimented by the simple wall sconces, the arc-desk lamps at the Hilton were a playful version of Castiglioni's famous "Arco". The Palm Springs sun was perfectly represented by a host of bright starburst mirrors --always a chic way to bring a little bit of modern sunshine into the home.  Hope you enjoy these snaps form my weekend in the desert, and my interpretations of how to bring the vintage/modern look into your own home.  Images: Justina Blakeney
