In the last few years since the beginning of the global pandemic, home interior design trends shifted to spaces having a lot of external or natural elements. Many people brought the indoors inside by installing indoor plants and opting for earthy hues and tones to mimic the outdoors. Closely linked to this trend is the Southwestern style, which according to The Spruce is characterized by “earthy color palettes and rustic accents.” This style gets inspiration from “Indigenous history, culture, and textile craft; Spanish settlers’ building methods; and the rustic charm of the ‘wild’ American West,” which means even more country and outdoors.
While the Southwestern interior design trend is known for its earthy color palettes such as terracotta, brown, and turquoise, it’s also known for the inspiration drawn from the materials Indigenous groups used in their culture, which often features layered textures. One can say that Southwestern style is closely linked to the natural materials trend as it also features leather, suede, terracotta, and greens from cactus and other plants, HGTV reported.
