In 2015 there seemed to be a dominance of palm leafs and pineapple motifs indulging us in all our tropical fantasies. But 2016 sees interiors taking inspiration from a host of desert-inspired imagery. And here are a few ideas to give your home that little bit of desert chic!

The humble cactus has to be the archetypal desert motif. And this charming apartment space makes great use of the cacti to add life and character to the clean white walls and beautiful wooden frames.

Whereas Zara Home allow you to bring a wilder side of the desert into your home with this decorative animal skull. Thankfully, no animals were harmed in the making of this product which is manufactured out of natural resin, but can add a great deal of arid character to just about any interior.

Cactus motifs can also be used in a more subtle way such as in the wallpaper in this living room. The funky wallpaper offers a softly charming backdrop of mint-green cactus silhouettes that work really well against the natural fabrics and calming light pink rug.

Whereas this living room makes great use of desert motifs with an elegant shabby-chic Joshua Tree picture contrasting with the modernist lamp. And the beautifully textured cushions below feature a pattern that wouldn’t look out of place on a poncho!
