There is something remarkably calming about the desert landscape. Reserved in nature and generous with heat, there are no shortage of elements that inspire. A single color can be found in a seemingly endless range of shades, from the more subdued to the vibrantly saturated. The occasional cacti or natural green can instill a unique hint of contrast to complement the scene. The organic elements of the desert inspired our latest collection, curated to emulate the quintessence of the landscape. Here’s how you can bring the very best of it into your home.

Dusted White
Subtly textured textiles composed of all-natural materials channel the wisps of white found in a desert. Throws and pillows with a modest fringe or pom pom detail can elevate the underlying simplicity of a colorless item.

Woven Naturals
Rattan is making a comeback. And it’s big. Whether you're embracing the trend in the form of furnishings or accents, consistency is key. Don't be afraid to layer in similar textures as long as they're complementary in nature. Pare down the look with soft whites and creams, a foolproof pairing for the rich brown hue of the rattan.

Sleek, polished, airy, and bright - just a few of the subdued characteristics that complete these naturally-finished essentials.

Desert Rose
Whether it comes in the form of sand or found at the tip of a cactus, this dusty shade epitomizes a more mature alternative to a classic pink. We’re taking major cues from this serene retreat inspired by a Moroccan-meets-Mediterranean aesthetic.

Picture sunset on a vast desert scene, the burnt oranges, pinks, and beiges are inspired to say the least! We're all for emulating these tones within a space, honing in on the more delicate blushes.

Poolside Neutrals
The spectrum of an oasis can surely vary when it comes to a palette. Drawing out the more subtle tones, we're looking to the pieces with delicate details that can transform a space with their defined composition. Think along the lines of a patterned floor piece, to lend a cohesive touch to a space or a statement seat with serious flair.

Couple these woven basics with a paint in a blush or off-white hue.
