The eclectic quality of these spaces appeals to me the most and no room is ever too “DONE”. I especially love the balanced use of texture and layers in all … Continue reading Interior Design by Justine Hugh Jones

HOTEL LAUTNER , a mid century time capsule !

Love this space. The Hotel Lautner in Palm Springs California.

Its his only hotel design and was actually  motel until rescued and  brought back to life in 2011.   The space is made of only 4 interlocking units.
