Bohemian decor has long offered us a way to make our homes feel simultaneously warmer, more welcoming and more interesting. But according to Etsy’s 2019 trend report, a new 2019 home decor trend will be taking the interior-design world by storm in the coming months: Southwestern decor, a.k.a. decor inspired by the Southwestern portion of the United States.
Southwestern home decor feels a lot like bohemian home decor in that it involves mixed-and-matched prints, earthy textiles and intricately carved wooden pieces. It departs, however, in palette, pattern and style.
Where bohemian decor is about rich and vibrant jewel tones, Southwestern decor takes advantage of more washed-out shades—like periwinkle, apricot and beige. Where bohemian prints feel organic, Southwestern prints feel a little crisper; stripes and triangles trump florals and paisleys. And where bohemian decor is curvy, drapey and loose, Southwestern decor is a little more staid; it feels minimalist but not at all sterile or underdone.
As die-hard fans of interior design who are always looking for fun new ways to add personality to our homes, we at StyleCaster are incredibly excited about this upcoming 2019 home decor trend. And naturally, we’re already shopping it.
Ahead, a visual (and shoppable) guide to the 2019 Southwestern home decor trend. And remember, you don’t have to go full Southwestern to take advantage of the aesthetic; plenty of these pieces would fit seamlessly into your home, regardless of what decor profile you already have going on.
