Close Up on Trina Turk Residential in Palm Springs



Trina Turk is known for her bold, resort inspired fashion. Always relaxed, always chic. Now, imagine the graphic prints of Trina’s clothing collection in pillows and upholstery to pop the interiors of your home. Trina Turk Residential, located right next door to Trina’s original Boutique on North Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs (and which was designed by Kelly Wearstler), foots that bill.

In addition to items made with Trina Turk signature prints, you can find beautiful items for the home including Missoni towels, Jr Ceramics and accessories, hip housewares for the garden and home by Alice Supply Company, Trina Turk candles and lots more.

Located in a 1962 Albert Frey building, Phil Smith of the Art Office created a series of simple, formal white surfaces coated with a three dimensional version of one of Trina’s signature fabrics. This white band continues around the entire retail space embracing the display boxes and cash wrap. 

Behind this white gesture, the space is painted a bright lemon yellow, evoking the optimism of Trina’s designs. This yellow is also reminiscent of the curtains Albert Frey used in his own home to frame the  yellow encilla flowers whose blossoms cover the desert foothills each spring. Frey is also the architect of the Palm Springs City Hall and the landmark gas station that now serves as the Palm Springs Visitor’s Center.
