Sampling – please note that we are only able to send out pattern cards, binders and loose fabric samples at this moment in time where it is urgent. As we are working with a skeleton team, these won't be sent out daily unfortunately. Any non-urgent samples will be sent out at a later date once the time is right to return to work fully. Please specify at time of order or contact our customer services team for more information.

South American Desert Style

Following on from our English Garden blog, the eighth trend we explore in our Global Traveller series is South American Desert Style.

 

Turn up the heat to feel the vibes of that hot desert look!

 

Ethnic chic has never been so fashionable, and of course teamed with dry textures and kilim patterns, you can take the neutral path or the contrasting bright path – mix it up with a cactus or two and hey presto…….you’ve got the look!

 

 

The desert room would not be complete without rustic coloured fabrics and earthy tones. EQUILIBRIUM and MANHATTAN take on that very rustic charm and characterize the desert style to perfection and with diamond appeal DIVINE, which picks up on the ikat shape so prevalent in this trend.

 

 

Integrating greenery into a more neutral desert inspired interior will re-fresh the muted environment; essential for a modern desert inspired interior. The succulent drought resistant plants such as the archetypal cactus, palm, mother in law tongue and air plants, are perfect and easy to live with. MANHATTAN, a dry twill, works very well in this environment and mixed with MONSOON it really “cools” the environment.

 

 

Desert style can also be quite Bohemian and aesthetically eclectic; mixing and matching stripes, colours and indigenous handicrafts therefore creating a very laid-back look. By combining hot amber tones with aqua hints, so colours at the opposite colour spectrum, the look sizzles!! Consider natural woods and exotic woods, something that every desert chic room demands and combine with leather; tan of course! The rustic textures of DUET, OPERA and QUARTET prints really helps to accentuate this look.

 

 

Hot, fun, exciting colours will also make a massive statement in capturing a modern desert décor…..think of those arid landscapes, vast canyons and the dry lands of Mexico…..so much inspiration, especially including the Navajo patterns and amazing Mexican blankets.

 

The result is a warm and worldly interior dusted with colour and vegetation.

 

 

Next, we will delve deeper into the global trend of Indian Extravaganza.
