Desert Digs

I didn’t realize my grandfather, E. Stewart Williams, was an amazing mid-century modern architect until later in life. All I knew growing up was that lemons for martinis were picked from the tree in the courtyard, pocket doors left fewer hiding places, the indoor/outdoor fireplace was not a playground, and the fort we built high-up in the Tamarisk trees was rad. These days, it’s better known for its architecture, but it will always be Poppy and Nanny’s Palm Springs Paradise to me.
