Southwest Chic Roundup

Last week I posted on the Southwest trend in interiors and while there are some beautiful inspirations out there, you can also spot lots of examples of a good trend gone bad! So I decided to round up some lovely Southwest pieces that you can add to your interior without having to move out West or start wearing cowboy boots! 

I love the vibrant hues of this printed throw pillow, available here on Etsy

The rustic soft aqua glaze on these nesting bowls is so pretty. I love how they look stacked and they would be great for serving too! From Hodaka Pottery


These geometric wood chargers from Wolfum are a bit Southwest inspired but still mod and very cool!  
I love this silvery-gray wool throw from Pendleton - it looks so cozy and soft 




The oversized scale of this woven pillow gives it a fresh feel. And what a great the subtle color combo too! 

This is actually a Turkish kilim rug, but its pattern and color palette reminded me of the Southwest. It would look so great layered over a larger sisal rug too!

I hope these chic pieces have given you a little more Southwest inspiration. I think in moderation, any trend can work in your interior!

I rarely see SW design done well. Good examples though - classy presentation.

I like these finds. And you're totally right -- a dose here and there would be fantastic in a space!

I like the pattern and execution on the wall in the first image - i can picture that in a clean, modern interior and it would look totally different.
Thanks for the inspiration.

This is reminding me of Santa Fe...I was there last year at this time. And I am yearning to go back! I didn't think Southwest style was for me and right when I left last year it started showing up everywhere as a trend...I guess in subtle doses like you have shown here I can like it :)

I love that Pendleton throw...beautiful design and colors. I did a post a while back on Santa Fe style - it's unique and not for everyone but done well (as you show here) it can be really beautiful. Funny how the Turkish rug looks so similar to the SW styles...seems like a lot of the designs overlapped long ago with trading, etc...part of what I love about travel is seeing the connections between people and design around the world!
