Designer Spotlight: Trina Turk's Home in Palm Springs


I'm a long time fan of designer Trina Turk's effervescent use of color and pattern in textiles and easy, breezy fashions. Her vibe is purely Palm Springs chic which speaks to the desert lifestyle of lounging poolside, in bikinis or caftans, during the day, and cocktail parties under the brilliant desert stars in the evening. Palm Springs was my go-to weekend getaway spot during my years living near Los Angeles and I appreciate the desert vibe. I spotted this collection of images from the house she shares with her husband, Jonathan Skow, in Palm Springs.  Though they were originally seeking a mid-century modern home with glass walls and clean lines, they fell in love with this home inspired by the lines of a sea going vessel. I hope you enjoy this peek into Trina Turk's vibrant Palm Springs world.


Our home is anchored by pieces my husband, Jonathan, and I have collected over the years. Adding, deleting, and switching things up over time gives a home true character.

Designing a room and a head-to-toe look are not that different! Color, texture, proportion and fabrics are all important—from a room’s architecture (the body) to the furniture (clothing) to the art and accents (jewelry, shoes).

I love Trina's colorful collection of vintage jewelry and sunglasses.
