03| DESERT LIVING


Creating an outdoor desert living space can be challenging, but there are many elements you can include to make the space more than just a desert. You will want to include drought tolerant plants, rocks, and stones. You can also combine different elements — pool, fire pit, pathways, a pop of color, and decorative rocks.

Think about what you will be using the space for and incorporate furniture that will work with your lifestyle — Outdoor dining table for entertainment or sun loungers for relaxation. Use plants and/or stones to create movement within the space. Using straight lines, minimal color and right angles create a contemporary design. No matter how creative you get, a desert living outdoor space is a perfect way to enjoy, relax and entertain all year with minimal features.
