Ever wondered what inspired the colorful look of the Saguaro?

Posted By: Friday, February 22, 2019

Look no further than the California desert and its indigenous wildflowers for the 14 striking hues. The pattern and design of the Saguaro Palm Springs was the invention of Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat of Stamberg Aferiat + Associates in New York who used the colors found in the flora of the Mojave Desert to create the Palm Springs hotel. The colors of plants and flowers in the Sonoran Desert set the foundation for the design of its sister property in Scottsdale. Widely-known for their use of color in design, Stamberg Aferiat + Associate’s chosen colors for the Saguaro hotels have made both properties iconic to travelers, social media mavens, and design fans from around the globe.

The exterior colors of the Saguaro Palm Springs have been translated into the design of its 244 guest rooms and most recently into the refurbishment of the hotel’s lobby with the addition of brightly colored vignettes and furniture by Long Beach-based designer Eric Trine. This follows the 2017 repainting of the Saguaro’s exterior using the original color palette in a collaboration with Dunn-Edwards Paints.
