A Midcentury Dream Re-imagined In The Desert


The iconic desert hideaway once known as the Desert Hot Springs Motel is re-imagined today as Hotel Lautner, a stunning modern day oasis in the desert. Los Angeles based interior designer Tracy Beckmann of Tracy Beckman Design and furniture designer Ryan Trowbridge of Brown + Trowbridge purchased the famed modernist architect John Lautner’s mid-century gem (built in 1947) and spent 3 ½ years on its meticulous renovation. The pair now introduces their chic reworking of this architectural landmark as Hotel Lautner, a four-suite boutique resort located just two hours east of Los Angeles, open to the public this September.

With top-shelf features, vintage modern furniture, luxurious baths, contemporary kitchens, private gardens, relaxing spa pool and outdoor lounge areas—the amenities and appointments at Hotel Lautner seem fantastically sophisticated for what was originally a 1940s era prototype for a master planned community in the desert.

How cute does this place sounds with all it's revamps!?
