The desert interiors trend is here…
And personally, I couldn’t be happier. The colour palette alone in the desert interiors trend is amazing, but I also love the amount of play you can have with indoor plants in this look. Before we get into those, let’s discuss at the main hues you’ll use in this trend.
For the most part, soothing grey is your foundation. Atop of that, introduce warm terracotta tones and then keep the overall look feeling cool and contemporary with deep blues and muddy greens.
I’ve seen the desert interiors trend executed in a more feminine style before – with pops of blush – but I much prefer it showcased with cooler tones. They balance out the warm oranges in the timbers featured in this trend, and the contrast works beautifully.
Of course, black is always a welcome addition, but it’s seen in smaller doses; a pot here, a lampshade there. Don’t go to overboard with dark colours and you’ll rock this trend wonderfully.
Pots, Plants and Pattern
It’s no secret that we’re all a little obsessed with greenery indoors, and this trend allows you to rock some classics. Cacti and succulents flourish in this trend; showcased in an array of black ceramic pots, concrete vessels and handmade glazed vases.
Of course, you don’t have to opt for living plants either. As this post demonstrates, fake flowers and greenery are back with a vengeance and a tonne of stores stock some awesome choices.
Both images above are from the new-season drop from OZ Design, and I’m completely smitten with them. The desert interiors trend calls for some literal moments in things like artwork (cactus art is so hot right now), but you can also opt for more subtle elements too, like patterns in rugs or soft furnishings.
When it comes to pattern, introduce some in the way of aztec motifs and some geometric moments. They’ll bring some much-needed visual stimulation to this look, and liven up the subdued colour scheme.
