Teenage Wasteland

comments 35


Golden Slumbers by The Beatles plays through my mind as beams of sunlight creep through the canvas sheathed windows . As I open the door to  greet the sunshine that welcoming knocked, I’m instantly paralyzed by the intensity of the desert heat.  I surrender to the warming embrace of the sun and lift my face in exhilaration towards the breathtaking skyline. The view is a spectacular sight, where the mountains meet the endless blue sky . I look down at the pool area from the balcony to catch a wave of nostalgic daze.   The crystal clear pool water looks like a quenching oasis, adorned with circular shaders scattered alongside lounge chairs where vacationers sip on cocktails and sway along to  indie pop music and the classics such as, Bob Dylan.

I couldn’t help but feel as though I was transported to another decade…

I walked directly into the 1960’s.

The Ace Hotel has maintained the retro essence and culture of Palm Springs through its decor and architectural design. Classic shades of cream and burnt orange splash the walls. As you walk into the hotel room, you can’t help but feel as though your a rebellious teenager crashing at someones pad for the weekend while they’re out of town.  This ‘lived in’ shag pad feel is created with posters and magazine clippings hung on the paneled walls, giving it a hipster dorm room flair. The light fixtures are two toned lights with bulbs on either end, one is red and the other is white, creating a cool option for mood lighting.

There was so much life at the Ace Hotel and Palm Springs in general, a sense of a long lost soul creeped into my bones. I definitely felt a sense of home here, maybe many lifetimes ago I had been here once before.
