We dare to say; what’s Eiffel Tower to Paris, that’s the Pink door to Palm Springs. The most photographed location.
It’s National Pink Day, and we think the most appropriate way to honor this day the California way is with #thatpinkdoor in Palm Springs. Hidden in the Indian Canyons neighborhood – we won’t tell which street, we don’t want to spoil the door hunt fun – the glamorous door has seen many iPhones and cameras pointed into her direction lately. Pink Door Palm Springs
*The door even has her own Instagram. What another door can say that?
When we discovered it for the first time, we felt jubilant. There is just something cheerful about that pink color. But immediately we also started wondering how might this beautiful house look behind the door, and before the fame. In the beginning, it looked something like this – an unremarkable, brown house no one would make an effort to photograph. But after the designer Moises Esquenazi and his partner bought the house, things changed within a year. Breathing in a new life, renovating and decorating the hell out of it, Esquenazi created what it is today. Almost a landmark.
Esquenazi owned the house from 2004 to 2008 before selling it. We wonder who the lucky owners are who get to walk every day through #thatpinkdoor. It would be a dream to see how it looks inside today, but we searched and found few pictures how it looked when Moises Esquenazi was calling the pink door home.
Have you been there? Have you posed in front of it? If yes, tag us on Instagram, we would love to see you picture with #thatpinkdoor.
Happy National Pink day!
UPDATE: We found the owners and this cute video by Palm Springs Oasis.
