Iconic Southern California resort unveils new look in its 90th anniversary year

OJAI, Calif. (April 1, 2013) – Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, a five-diamond resort located just 70 miles from Los Angeles, celebrates its 90th anniversary in 2013 with a new look for its 308 guestrooms. Santa Barbara design firm SFA traded the Inn's Moorish inspired hand-painted furniture and heavy fabrics for modern furnishings, minimal patterns, a soft airy color scheme and subtle hints of Spanish tradition. The goal:  to pay homage to the resort's location in the heart of Ojai Valley, the unofficial "Zen capital" of Southern California.

"The updated décor of the guest rooms now reflects the serenity that washes over guests as they wander through Ojai Valley Inn's verdant grounds," said Pete Ells, Managing Director.

Ojai's $5.5 million room renovation, which will be completed this spring, includes all new carpeting, window treatments, furnishings and bedding. Distressed walnut and alder, evoking the rustic wood on the doors of a classic Spanish hacienda, were used in the desks. Chevron-striped fabrics, a popular pattern in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, were selected for the two main chairs. The mercury-mirrored lamps are contemporary in style but with an antique touch. Lavender, the hotel's signature scent thanks to the seven varieties that grow on property, provided inspiration for the hues in the throw pillows, bedspread and carpets. Electronic updates to the guest rooms include new flat-screen TVs ranging in size from 41 to 55 inches, with jack packs that enable guests to connect their computers to the screens, and new Blu-ray players. 

Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is located an hour north of Los Angeles in the uniquely artistic, eclectic and spiritually rich town of Ojai. Home to the award winning Spa Ojai, renowned Ojai Golf Course, world-class cuisine in Maravilla restaurant and featuring the legendary "Pink Moment" sunsets, the resort is an idyllic setting for a quintessential Southern California vacation.
