Hope you had a great Easter weekend!

I was lucky enough to have been invited to Palm Springs for the weekend with a bunch of moms and teenage boys to stay at La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs. The hotel is a gigantic but incredibly charming golf resort built in the 1920’s surrounded by a beautiful mountain range. The entire site was so pretty it felt like a movie backdrop. And to make it even more interesting, I stumbled on one of the most magical houses I’ve ever seen….

While wandering the area I happened to stumble upon a wedding being set up in a courtyard of  a house in a quiet corner of the hotel property.

Something with the house really intrigued me and I had to take a closer look.

Turns out the house once belonged to Swedish silent film star Greta Garbo.

The entire house was left the way it was when she lived in it.

The simple yet grand Spanish 1920’s kitchen.

The kitchen led out to a lowered sunken living room…

Where time seemed to have stood still.

The house consisted of three separate wings divided  by the courtyard.

The living room was very Scandinavian.

I can only imagine what it looked like at one time.

And amazingly old/modern bathrooms.

How cool!

I bet the lone seeking movie star enjoyed some real peace and quiet here.
