Rare [Photos] of 1950s Celeb Party Pads – #6 is So Swingin’

These days, Palm Springs is known best for its proximity to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, which happens in nearby Indio. But half a century ago, the area was known as the playground for such revered celebs as Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, and Sammy Davis Jr.

And with many of its most magnificent mid-century homes intact, Palm Springs feels like a blast from the past. It’s easy to picture Marilyn Monroe floating in a pool, martini in hand.

From delightfully campy wall-to-wall carpeting to breathtaking floor-to-ceiling windows, come on a tour of the homes where the A-listers of yesteryear spent their leisure time.


Classy vintage celebrities let their pads reflect an era that can never be reproduced. Luckily, some of these original homes are still in tact and you can see their classic MCM architecture, completely styled out.
