Dried palms, rustic styling and untreated natural surfaces define this pared back look, as we seek to create a more authentic way of living, worlds away from the always-on culture around us. There’s a new appreciation for the beauty of bare wood in all its glorious tones and textures. Wicker and rattan furnishings have a ragged, worn down look and skeletal, sun-bleached branches stand out like ghostly sentinels. Hand-crafted ceramics and accessories are carved and etched, with imperfections that make each piece unique. Pools of refreshing blue break into this arid scene, providing an oasis of calm and cooling colour.
