Laid-back and calming, desert decor is a trend we can’t get enough of. A more minimalist version of boho style, modern desert decor takes cues from desert locales like Joshua Tree, Marfa, and Sedona. Think neutral walls, warm and earthy colors, varied textures, natural decor elements, and geometric prints.
To achieve the perfect desert decor style, start with the rug. Reminiscent of the elements and textures found in desert climates, these neutral rugs will create the perfect foundation to transform your home into a relaxing desert escape.
We’ve rounded up seven of our favorites to help you create the look in your own home.
Re-Jute rugs were practically made for desert decor. The jute-like look and warm tan and oatmeal colors of this rug pair perfectly with the other soft neutrals and natural elements, like the natural wood furniture and ceramic accents seen in this living room. The dainty floral design adds depth and visual interest to the simple space.
Bring the desert vibe into the dining room with a striking geometric rug in a bright off-white and soft black color palette. Pair it with other light-colored decor items, like a blonde table, white sideboard, and light colored chairs to complete the look.
Sometimes simple is best. The burlap pattern of this rug adds just enough texture to the space without overpowering the other decorative elements, while the neutral tones add just enough warmth. To balance out the warmth, infuse a touch of green through plants or a painted arch on the wall.
Desert decor blends rustic elements with bold geometry, and this Southwestern-inspired rug nails the style effortlessly. While the color palette of this rug is mostly neutral, the hints of brick red make just enough of a statement. To add some more color while keeping with the desert theme, try incorporating some greenery.
Whether or not you live in the desert, you can create the perfect desert vibe on your patio with a distressed geometric outdoor rug in off-white and beige. Because of this rug’s natural desert appeal, all you need are some natural wood furniture and a rattan light fixture to complete the look.
Turn your bedroom into a relaxing oasis with a jute-like rug in a striking Southwestern-inspired pattern. Keep the rest of the space simple and clutter free for a truly zen space.
Don’t forget the entryway. Easily give your home the desert vibe by placing a Re-Jute rug with a subtle pattern by the front door, in the foyer, or near the patio door. The durable material of our Re-Jute rugs makes it perfect for these high-traffic areas. To add onto the desert vibe, incorporate a piece of furniture in distressed natural wood.
