Saguaro Palm Springs Colors

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 colors was the invention of Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat of Stamberg Aferiat in New York.  They used the colors found in the flora of the Mojave Desert to create the Saguaro Palm Springs color pallet. The colors of plants and flowers in the Sonoran Desert set the foundation for the design. Widely-known for their use of color in design, Stamberg Aferiat chosen Saguaro colors have made the property iconic to travelers, social media mavens, and design fans from around the globe.

Colors of Saguaro Palm Springs

The Saguaro Palm Springs exterior colors have been translated into the design of its 244 guest rooms.  The hotel’s lobby is brightly colored 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.

Explore the desert on a cruiser bike, relax during a spa treatment, take a yoga session, or sway your afternoon away in a rainbow-colored hammock while your friends play bocce nearby. During the weekend, the poolside bar serves breakfast, appetizers—like almond-crusted local Coachella dates—and tacos. It’s worth extending your trip just to take advantage of Taco Tuesday and Thursday (“because one day is not enough”) at the hotel’s main restaurant, El Jefe.
