Remember that stunning retro-tinged W Magazine photo shoot starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie lounging around a midcentury modern home in Palm Springs? Well, if you felt like crawling into the photos and living there, then I would suggest booking a honeymoon stay at the new Hotel Lautner in Desert Hot Springs, California. The cozy desert hideaway, originally built by celebrated architect John Lautner in 1947, has spent the last three years undergoing meticulous renovations. The landmark building, formerly known as the Desert Hot Springs Motel, reopens this month as a four-suite boutique resort featuring midcentury vintage furniture, private gardens, and a luxe pool area—so dreamy. Introductory rates start at $200 per night; book through hotellautner.com. For even more honeymoon ideas, visit our Honeymoons Index. —Lauren Matthews
