Southwest Boho Style

I think my mind is ready for a vacation south of the border… or at least south of this rain. I’ve been obsessing over natural linens and layered textiles in soft palettes that recall warmer weather and seaside vacations. Still cozy enough for winter, but inviting the spring, the only colors here are shades of brown and grey with hints of dusty roses and variations of peach…

The palette (recalling the 90’s) reminds me of something Georgia O’Keefe would have painted. Stick a skull or a desert vista in there and we’re right on target!

So when I recently discovered that a bunch of the new additions to West Elm’s rug and pillow selection included this same vibe, I was pretty inspired. Never has a ‘get the look’ been so easy!

With the addition of a few more pillows from other designers, these prints and patterns mix and match quite nicely, dontcha think? I especially love it with the addition of a rich, rusty brown!
