Two properties introduced at the festival were Desert Eichler 4 and 5, developed by KUD Properties, Inc., the exclusive builder of Desert Eichler homes in the Palm Springs area. With careful thought and respect to the
history of Eichler properties, the team at KUD modernized the properties for today’s Palm Springs lifestyle, including maximizing view of the local mountains, adding high-end finishes, and providing sustainable products. Troy Kudlac, president of KUD Properties, Inc., noted that many original Joseph Eichler details remain integral to the updated plans — including the atriums, pitched rooflines and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Dunn-Edwards was proud to participate in the Desert Eichler 4 and 5 home projects, donating the paint
and advising on color selections. This included creating a custom color, which was documented as an historic Eichler color based on prior research done for the Then, Now & Forever® color collection launch.
