Fall in Love With Southwestern Décor

Fall in Love With Southwestern Décor

Fall in Love With Southwestern Décor

Even East Coasters like me can’t deny the beauty of dramatic gorges across a reddish-orange desert, below a deep-blue, Southwestern sky. The region’s popular décor is as inspiring as its landscape. Touch-me textures, natural materials, and intricate patterns look casually cool and approachable in your home.

Use these four design motifs to embrace this trend, like an easy August afternoon.

Regional Patterns

With Spanish and Native-American influences, Southwestern patterns are as distinctive to the region as cacti. Think bright, colorful stripes in warm tones like those featured on this perky serape tablecloth. Have fun with a modern, bold area rug that rifts on the classic diamond motif.

Mission-Style Wood

The simple, clean lines and rich, wood grain of Mission-style furniture—influenced by the architecture of Spanish missions—are hallmarks of Southwestern style. Nestle a chestnut rocking chair into a reading nook near a fireplace or next to these multipurpose nesting tables.

Leather and Hair on Hide

Experiment with the real thing or go faux. Both can feel buttery soft and look downright luxurious and inviting, like this ottoman. Not a fan of hides or leather? Try a flokati rug. Also, jute and wicker are durable and bring texture, warmth, and casual sophistication to a room.

Stones and Metals

Turquoise, copper, volcanic rock, crystal—take your pick. Let a pair of geodes double as accent pieces and bookends. Enlist a hammered-copper bowl as an eye-catching catch-all. If you’re not color-shy, take advantage of this turquoise-veined table lamp’s natural beauty, which really pops against earth tones.

Bedding shown at top is the Madison Park Malone 7-Piece Comforter Set.
