The living room above is a redesigned den featured at A Beautiful Mess. This striking space makes the most of combining two disparate décor styles into one creative and unique look. In this case, the Southwestern style and a sleek, modern aesthetic.
This space goes right to the heart of the desert style and incorporates tons of live cacti into the mix. White walls with black exposed beams make things stark and geometric, with a bit of a rustic vibe. The blue sofa grounds everything out with a soothing, cool feel.
What really rounds out the space are accents of bright gold to create visual interest. The gold accented fabrics, the gold frame on the mirror and the gold hanging from the ceiling all look stunning.
If you’d like to get this look, in addition to tons of cacti, you’ll want to aim for soothing blue fabrics and gold fabrics. You also may want to look for white faux animal skin, like in the rug from the photo. You can see some examples of similar fabric selections below.
