home: trend [ desert sands ]
Taking the world, literally, by a (sand) storm is the new desert trend with its pattern and texture combinations, homely feel and power to be added to with collected items and finds from travels.
This look combines white walls and then brings pattern in through the soft furnishings. The easiest way to start is with a good Kilim, south western or geometric rug and work upwards with the colour palette from there, with tapestries, wall hangings, cushions, hints of metallic and details in the home accessories and wall art of the desert including cactus, lanterns and rope.
Pick real woods for furniture – teak, mango and walnut, and layer up the trend to create an eclectic look, but the fresh white walls will keep it clean and less cluttered.
