On my recent trip to California I visited Joshua Tree National Park. It has to be one of the most stunning, breathtaking places I have ever been to. You will find utter peace and quiet, nestled between towering golden rock, majestic yucca brevifolia and desert wildflowers–all framed against a brilliant blue sky. A truly inspiring location which feeds the imagination.
First things first, to inject a bit of Joshua Tree magic into your home, use natural features. Incorporate wood, leather, stone and foliage into your design to mirror the desert habitat.
Cacti are a must-have and are super easy to maintain. The pop of green works perfectly against earthy wood tones, while woven baskets are the ideal go-between.
Pick tribal-inspired prints to celebrate the ancestral diversity of the region. The options are endless, ranging from cushions, throws and rugs to furniture. The somewhat rough textures are a reflection of desert life and the rich colours celebrate the natural surroundings.
Break up bold prints with leather accessories. The more aged the better for an authentic, rustic feel!
