Whether you live in the south-west or you just want to recreate that fantastic New Mexico atmosphere, a couple of Santa Fe themed throw pillows could instantly transform your living room!
Also known as Mission style or Southwestern, the Santa Fe style of interior decorating is all about creating the pueblo adobe atmosphere inside the home. It does so by incorporating the red, orange and yellow colors of the New Mexico desert, with striking shades of blue and turquoise (the stones traditionally used by the Navajo people).
In terms of pattern, traditional Navajo and Pueblo designs are key. These are gorgeous geometric designs, often arranged in rows. However, if you're looking to recreate great vacation memories from Santa Fe, you could also use motifs of chilly peppers or even an Indian dream catcher (we included these in our collection).
