Boutique Design Events and Trade Fairs

Amara Resort and Spa in Sedona, Arizona, has completed a multimillion-dollar renovation encompassing all 100 guestrooms and public spaces, including the resort’s signature restaurant, SaltRock Southwest Kitchen and Amara Spa. Mendil + Meyer Design Studio handled the design.

Amara’s refreshed look takes inspiration from the surrounding red rocks and brings the outdoors in to create a “tree-lodge” aesthetic by encompassing the five elements of nature: earth, wood, metal, fire, and water. Every guestroom feels like a sanctuary as neutral tones blend harmoniously with organic textures, while a deep blue feature wall serves as an anchor to promote a sense of connection to the sights and sounds of the nearby babbling creek. New artwork, carpet, and linens with bold patterns, geometric shapes, and handwoven details create a more masculine identity.

Upon entering the resort, the dramatic, vaulted ceilings are adorned with two eye-catching chandeliers inspired by star constellations, while wood accents and bold textures create a variety of subtle statement pieces through furniture, art, and accessories. A focal point of the lobby is an elongated bar that extends from the adjoining SaltRock Southwest Kitchen restaurant into the communal area.
