Nothing says summer like the sweltering heat, and no place brings the heat quite like the desert. Between the recent rise of southwest style and rusty terra-cotta hues, our favorite home brands are trading in their tropical fixations for the arid landscape. In anticipation for warmer weather, we’re looking to Zara Home’s 2019 summer editorial to transform our homes into natural wonders.

Drawing on an established set of earthy tones and natural fibers, the fashion-forward brand’s newest collection encapsulates the beauty of a desert getaway. While we aren’t particularly surprised to see desolate landscapes gaining momentum (Sherwin-Williams dubbing “Cavern Clay” as 2019’s color of the year was our first clue), Zara Home’s edgy take pushes the southwest movement one step further.

Grainy whites, scorched yellows, and bare surfaces all signal that desert living is moving in a textured direction. Set within the walls of an uninhibited escape, these three trends reign supreme in Zara Home’s sunny summer editorial. Read on for three standout looks we’re loving and how to bring them home.


Grainy Whites

White has long been regarded as a staple for summertime. Out in the desert, the neutral hue isn’t so crisp. Instead, its purity has been replaced with a sense of grittiness that evokes a tiring trek through the sand dunes.

Scorched Sunset
