Give Your Living Room Desert-Chic Vibes With Patterns and Texture

Who: Kate Keesee, design and thrift enthusiast

Where: Anaheim, California

Why we love this pic: The compelling patterns of the zig-zag rug coupled with the reclaimed wood barn door add plenty of visual intrigue. Meanwhile, an array of organic textures, from the woven baskets and cozy throws to the molded plywood chair, complete the space with welcoming, homespun warmth.

The takeaway: Patterns and textures are a no-fail way to create an inviting design.
