Splash House 2015 will return to previous pools at the Saguaro Hotel and Hacienda Beach Club, while replacing the Hard Rock Hotel with the Palm Springs Hilton for the first time. With the Hilton's expanded pool and grassy areas, plus additional pool-facing balconies to decorate for the now traditional ‘Splash House Best Balcony Contest’, the Hilton makes a perfect new home for 2015.

Palm Springs Style recently did a spread on Frank Sinatra's Twin Palms Estate in the Movie Colony neighborhood for their DESIGN + DÉCOR section.
They had some really interesting things to say about the property...
"Sleek and understated with a flat shed roof few had seen before in the desert, the now-iconic design featured clean lines with floor-to-ceiling windows and clerestories that gave a light, airy aura to the 4,500-square-foot modular layout. The modern design won Sinatra over, and Williams’ team worked around the clock to get the project finished in time for Sinatra to ring in the New Year at his new home, which was dubbed “Twin Palms” in reference to the two tall palm trees in the yard."

Frank Sinatra's Twin Palms Estate and Palm Springs Modernism Week got a great write up in the New York Times, heralding a new era of Palm Springs hipness. Take a look:
PALM SPRINGS, Calif. — They came for the walking tours of Vista Las Palmas, the neighborhood so popular with Frank Sinatra and his crowd that it is known as the Rat Pack Playground. They rode buses up steep hills to view the gemlike house built around a massive boulder by Albert Frey, an architect known as a father of desert modernism. And of course they could not miss the outdoor show of vintage travel-trailers and the nightly parties in private homes rarely open to the public.
Before “Mad Men” made its debut, there were the modernistas, as aficionados of midcentury modern architecture are known. About 50,000 of them descended upon this affluent town in the San Jacinto Mountains this month for the 10th annual celebration of Modernism Week.
