Nothing says cool and chic like the easy breezy Palm Springs style. It’s a great way to glam up your home, add a splash of colour and have some fun!
Originating from the Californian City Palm Springs, this style is perfectly suited to the Australian climate and lifestyle. Easy living in the sun is it’s MO, with a strong focus on the indoor-outdoor way of life. So expect lots of palm trees and succulents, both inside and out, and some clever passive design with its signature use of breeze blocks to promote natural heating and cooling.
The clean lines of the tiles on the left provide a great foundation to showcase the bold prints and colours. While the muted tiles and breeze blocks on the right offer a fresh backdrop for the vibrant foliage and subtle prints.
Add colour pops
Palm Springs decor typically has a white base with pops of colour, including citrus yellow, flamingo pink and ocean blues.
Again, in these examples they have used crisp clean white tiles as a base, and built the Palm Springs look around it. The subway tiles (left image) maintain a strong contemporary feel, while the floor tiles keep it fresh and practical for the inside-outside living.
Make a statement
As you can see, wallpaper is a very strong feature in the Palm Springs home, and can be used either as a feature wall or all over if your room can cope with it and you’re game!
The image on the left has gone with a blush pink hand cut tile as a base, while the middle example has incorporated a square marble tile with a hint of blush pink to compliment the colours in the wallpaper.
Style with a tile
Of course, the tiles don’t have to sit in the background – they can easily become the feature of the room, if you want to add a textured pop of colour.
