The southwestern style as we know it today is not the same as it was when it was first introduced. These interiors gather their inspiration from the soft lines of adobe houses, Spanish textiles, ironwork and nature. Southwestern color pallets have various colors found in the American desert, such as rust, terracotta, and cactus green to name a few. Furniture is more on the heavy side, often adorning thick legs and bulky finishes. Textures, such as leather and suede, are an essential factor as well. A common modernized version of the southwestern design style includes white concreted fireplaces, dark wood couches or chairs covered in white fabrics, and succulent plants to add a natural touch.
