Dreaming of a modern desert escape at home? Hayneedle has teamed up with Sunset Magazine for their 2018 Idea House, showcasing a host of fresh, inspired looks. The bedrooms feature Southwest-inspired vignettes with an of-the-moment combination of patterns and textures. See below to get the look and integrate soothing desert hues and decor inspired by nature in your home.
Specifically with your pillowscape! There’s no such thing as too much texture or too many prints in a modern desert bedroom. Keep it contained with a similar color palette and play with the different sizes of patterns. Geometric designs with tassels, fringe, and woven details are always in win for a Southwest look.
Capture the rustic nature of the desert with wood grain details in your space. Wood furniture and wood paneled wall decor adds to the look while providing more layers of texture. Try live-edge wood and raw wood pieces with imperfections to make the look even more organic and beautiful.
Greenery & Natural Elements
Think of easy-to-care-for plants such as air plants, cacti, succulents, and fiddle-lead figs. You can also try silk artificial plants that are just as good as the real thing. Elements inspired by nature are the perfect finishing touch to a modern Southwest look including ceramic vases, cowhide rugs, and artisan-inspired planters.
Soft Color Palette
The desert is known for stunning natural beauty and a striking color palette. Draw inspiration from Western eclecticism and work in some light blues, grays, and blush pink. Natural, handmade-inspired elements should create their own color scheme.
Stick to the perfect color palette, natural elements, and an effortless mix of patterns and textures to create a dreamy modern Southwest bedroom — no 100+ degree weather included.
