For a virtual vacation, grab your remote. Hulu recently came out with “Palm Springs,” a delightful rom-com about two lonely wedding guests who relive the same day over and over again, developing feelings for each other along the way against the charming desert background.

While the title points to the iconic resort city, the movie was actually not filmed in Palm Springs. As production designer Jason Kisvarday told Architectural Digest, “The biggest challenge was trying our best to try to make these towns feel like Palm Springs and the surrounding areas without actually being there.”

The team achieved their goal. The movie set mirrors a typical Palm Springs resort destination, with a lush swimming pool area complete with colorful lounge chairs, quirky floats, and bright beach umbrellas—a literal desert oasis. “We did whatever we could so nobody could tell the difference. We even brought in palm trees,” Kisvarday continued.

And the fantasy continues to the sets inside. The residence’s main bedroom is full of inspiration with a natural color palette and mid-century-meets-boho accents like potted plants, wooden furniture, a vintage table lamp, and patterned rug.

If the film has you inspired to bring some desert vacation vibes to your outdoor space, here are a few things you can use to get the look.
