Every February, scores of design fans flock to Southern Utah to attend the annual St. George Area Parade of Homes. This year, we were among them and took note of a number of trends that defined the style of this year’s celebrated desert dwellings. Ready to be inspired?
Indoors and out, glass walls create bold architectural statements while inviting desert views and natural light to flood interiors and high-style spaces.
WOOD SLAT WALLS
Wooden slats and molding transform walls from blah to ahh in a number of the homes’ bedrooms and office spaces. The memorable detail adds instant pattern and dimension to statement walls that define the décors.
Breaking free from predictable symmetry, numerous fireplaces showcase asymmetric forms and unbalanced silhouettes that add interest and mod style to desert décors, indoors and out.
BLACK & WHITE
The classic combination of black and white has been enjoying a (long) decorating moment, and a number of the Parade homes use it to add high contrast to their décors. From flooring and wallpaper to fixtures and painted walls, this timeless pairing adds a punch of drama to rooms of all types.
Given Southern Utah’s sunny climate and spectacular views, it’s no surprise that stylish outdoor living spaces are prized in nearly all of the homes, large and small. Savvy design even makes bathing an enjoyable outdoor activity, as shown below.
Ribbed, grooved and channeled surfaces deliver dimension and visual interest to cabinetry, furnishings and walls in creative and eye-catching ways.
