The vast landscapes, vivid sunsets, unique topography, and vegetation (or lack thereof) of the American Southwest are undoubtedly a great source of creative inspiration. This fall in particular, the patterns and motifs that conjure the sun-bleached geography of New Mexico and Arizona will be in abundance, which means getting the desert-cool look is totally doable.
From art and bedding in earthy shades like terracotta, ochre, sand, and peach to bold patterned rugs and throw pillows, these eight easy pieces from Walmart’s Fall Style collection will take you on a trip out West—without ever leaving your home.
Let this graphic wool rug be a statement piece in your room. Its tufted, textural detailing and chunky-fringe ends make it an extra-cozy layer.
A tufted, tone-on-tone diamond and arrow pattern adds interest to this 100 percent cotton (and machine washable) pillow cover; it’s available in a 20-inch-square size as well as a bolster version and includes an insert.
Artist Bria Nicole’s Ochre 1, a giclée print on canvas, depicts a still life of pots and succulents that are ubiquitous in the region. Nearly any space in your home could benefit from this piece—hang it solo or mixed into a gallery wall.
Shower curtains are a fun way to incorporate bold patterns in your home. This one—made from a mold- and mildew-resistant fabric—is an oversize geometric version of a classic Southwestern motif.
Infuse desert-inspired vibes into your space (without shouting it from the rooftops) with a more neutral comforter.
Handwoven fiber art brings an unexpected textural element to your walls. This tapestry is made from chunky wool-and-cotton yarns and hangs from a bamboo rod.
The simplest way to incorporate any new trend into your home is by adding a few throw pillows to your sofa or bed. This one, in heathered shades of burnt orange and tan, feels like a piece you’d find while thrifting in Arizona.
Another beauty from artist Bria Nicole. This framed giclée on canvas depicts the last minutes of a sunset beyond a broad desert horizon.
