I appreciate how Emily Summers, a Dallas-based interior designer, revived this 1969 Palm Springs property into a crisp, mid-century modern gem. The pops of color are refreshingly playful and the retro chairs are especially a highlight – each one so wonderfully distinct!

    I love all the minty greens and teals, they work well with the retro vibe but still look modern with all of the white. I really love the electric orange and grey combo too!

  7. The neon colors contrast the white walls very well, giving a waarm atmosphere even if there only is little color.
