Following on from Edmund Bells Global Traveller series; the next Edmund Bell looks into the style of South American Desert.

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 drylands 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.
