Inspired by coastal Spain, Electric Bowery composed a rich palette of color & texture to complement the existing historical character of Casa Cody. Casa Cody is the oldest operating hotel in Palm Springs, founded in the 1920s by Hollywood pioneer Harriet Cody, cousin to the legendary Buffalo Bill. The project blends historic preservation with fresh and modern colors, textures and patterns, honoring its Spanish Colonial Revival heritage and adobe hacienda architecture with a new lens.[p]>
Quiet and secluded yet just steps from Palm Springs’ center, Casa Cody is a romantic respite with 29 rooms including three free-standing accommodations across well-manicured grounds, situated in front of the rising backdrop of the San Jacinto Mountains under the open skies of the California desert.
Casa Cody is a designated Class I Historic Site, Palm Springs’ highest level of historic preservation protection. In the early 1900s, Harriet and Harold Bryant Cody came by wagon from Hollywood to Palm Springs where they settled on land that was to become Casa Cody and built a home.
With warm coral velvet, textured blue-green accents, and otomi-patterned pillows, the rooms are imbued with depth to enliven the existing plaster interior.
Each room features richly colored zellige tile and deep blue millwork in the bathrooms and bar areas, reflecting the Mediterranean influence in a modern design.
Electric Bowery custom designed upholstered elements and cabinetry in the space for an inviting, residential feel. Dark wood tones balance the rich pops of color, creating a classic yet modern aesthetic that is unlike any other in Palm Springs, as unique as the vibrant history of the property.
With multiple courtyards and spacious lawns against a serene mountain backdrop, Casa Cody is a sanctuary within the creative bustle of downtown Palm Springs.
