The neutral color palette in this master bedroom keeps the space feeling light and bright, while the dark wood of the dresser and nightstands add contrast. Neutral curtains diffuse the desert sun, making the space feel airy and comfortable.
To add crisp contrast to this sleek living room, dark gray ceramic panels surround the fireplace and the chimney. The flanking walls are almost entirely glass, firmly connecting the residence with its desert setting.
A negative edge pool is a beautiful fit for cascading down natural slope of the land. Mosaic tiles create pops of color shining through the water to brighten the natural tones of the design. A natural rock retaining wall with built in waterfall feature creates a textural contrast to the smooth patio tile.
Designers wanted to make the most of this odd shaped living room, so they arranged the sectional to fit the space to ensure the room has plenty of seating. To create a focal point in the space, a chandelier was hung in the center of the vaulted ceiling. This fixture draws the eye to the cream brick fireplaces that draws a subtle contrast from the white walls and adds texture to the space. Finally, a photo of a horse on the beach gives the room a little splash of color.
High-contrast landscapes call for high-contrast color palettes. This desert ranch stays cool with a white exterior and an accent of chocolate brown trim. The beauty of this color combo? Any accent color can be chosen for outdoor furniture and decorations.
A soft gray color palette contrasts against the rustic elements of exposed ceiling beams and stacked stone in this cozy bedroom. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow beautiful views of the Arizona desert and mountains.
Ample sunlight and a soothing desert-inspired color palette prove a winning combination in the spa-style master bathroom of the HGTV Dream Home 2010. A drop-in bathtub is encompassed in black-speckled white tiles and given a soft vibe with a row of illuminated candles. A candle chandelier hangs above a painted sage green double vanity, which is contrasted by the dark blue color accents used to trim the doorways.
