Today I am going to share the story of the greatest accomplishment of my life. Jeff and I just got back from an amazing weekend in the desert at The Saguaro hotel! We partnered with them for a fun anniversary getaway that included a scavenger hunt… all about color, of course! You can see peeks of our trip here and here, and we’ll be sharing all about it right here in the coming weeks! But first… one of the tasks on our list was to take advantage of the free bikes at the hotel and do some “dream house shopping” in the neighborhoods nearby. However, I had ulterior motives. Motives in the form of this pink door. THAT pink door.
If any of you have ever been on Pinterest, there’s a good chance you saw a picture of that pink door. It’s amazing. It’s glorious. It’s my dream door. I’ve searched the heck out of it and every time I’m in Palm Springs I’ve hoped we’d just happen upon it. No luck. But when the concierge told us that the neighborhood down the street was where Palm Springs began, where all the iconic houses lived… I could feel it in my BONES. We were finding that house. In fact, we weren’t leaving until we found it. So we biked and biked and we found every color of the rainbow (more on that soon!).. but no pink. Later in the day we went into town and decided to take another stab at it on our way home and I went into MAJOR sleuth mode. And finally… WE FREAKIN’ FOUND IT! Guys. I screamed. I screamed so loud, I scared the guy taking a nice evening jog alongside our car. We parked, I leaped out, we took the picture above, and then decided we needed to come back in the morning… when there was better light. Because we are crazy and insane and OH MY GOSH THE PINK DOOR IN REAL LIFE.
So the next morning we came back (hence the outfit change), and we lived out our dream. Ok, it was my dream. But don’t let that photo of Jeff lookin’ all calm and collected below fool you. He was excited too. REAL excited. And the best best outcome out of all of this? I got Jeff to agree to a pink door on our future home. Proof. Right here in writing that he said, so you can all help me kindly remind him when that day comes.

Love that door. It’s the perfect shade of pink! And those palm trees on the right of the house are pretty great too. So tall!
Love, love the door, not just the colour but the texture and raised wood (is that wood)? Who knew Palm Springs was sooooo colourful!

Love love your story about the iconic pink door! I’ve been searching for it too, and have been unsuccessful. But I shall be returning to this wonderful city for my anniversary and I’d love to share this experience with my significant other. On what street can I find this gem? I’d appreciate your help! Thanks 🙂
I love the pink door can u please tell me the brand of paint and the name of the color pink? Thanks so much
What’s the big commotion about a pink door. Has everyone been sheltered all their life. I have a red door at home if anyone is interested
Or I know where there is no door on a house.
Any paint shop carried this color pink.
Hello Can you please let me know the address of this gorgeous house – Im heading to Palm Springs next week and would love to know. Thank you !!
