The interiors forecast is in and it’s predicting a strong desert wind. Set to be one of the main design trends for 2017, the ‘desert wanderer’ look is about embracing ‘controlled rusticity’ – think raw, natural elements with geographical and topographical nods. If you’re imagining kicking back on a Navajo rug while the breeze ruffles through your linen curtains and over to your indoor succulents, you’re right on the money.

The key to this trend is incorporating natural textures (linen, stone, suede, cork and terracotta), with Aztec, Moorish and Moroccan patterns, and metallic accents of copper and blushed silver. As for the colour palette you’re looking to create? Soothing earthy hues, orange tones, muted spices and cinnamon should guide your choices, with hints of blush tones for softness.
