With the tones of a moody desert sky, this atmospheric scheme picks up the muted shades of the decorative cacti.

A pattern-rich curtain steals the showand gets whipped into shape by a rustic leather braid.

Low-slung seating in bold geometrics, teamed with this evocative backdrop inspired by a big sky, captures the laid-back Navajo spirit.

The natural hues and bold red trim of the footstool tie the look together while grounding this energetic scheme.

Cool blues and elegant furniture sing against the main attraction – a wicked wallpaper that knows it’s the chief.

All-out pattern makes for an edgily cool combo – with walls that rock a rattlesnake vibe and a statement chair in subtle hues.

Feature tiling and an indoor garden bursting with exotic faux plants create a desert oasis for the perfect chill-out zone.

An eye-catching chaise in poncho-inspired stripes brings this look to life, while the fireplace follows its colourful lead.

The softer side of desert style shines through with smudgy sunset shades and deep-hued, vibrant patterns.

The sharp lines of these tiles pack a punch, while enticing you through to the rest of this harmonious suite.
