The desert colours interior design trend has arrived, decorating junkies, and it’s taking the world by storm. In today’s post I want to show you some amazing ways to make this trend shine at your place.
This colour craze sees us adopting rich shades with mood and depth. Think warm tones like terracotta, ochre, rose and burnt orange – teamed with cooler, contrasting green hues.
And don’t worry; you don’t have to go all out and paint a wall orange to channel the vibe. Simply update your bedding and other soft furnishings to enjoy a new look without any big-change regret.
This post is produced in partnership with Lorraine Lea.

Desert Colours All in the One Bedding Set
I have to start this desert tones showcase with my fave new-season drop from Lorraine Lea. It’s the Lola Quilt Cover Set you see above and below, and boy is it a beauty. Not only does this quilt cover set offer up a sense of whimsy, but a dazzling dose of colour too.
And while there are certainly a number of tones at play here, it doesn’t feel at all overwhelming. That’s thanks to the white backdrop and delicate print, which dances across one side of the quilt cover. A white underside provides some visual rest.
And notice the contrasting European pillows? How good are they!? Not only do you get depth from the rich green backdrop on these, but they come with tasseled edges for added fun and tactility.
Accessories to Pair The Lola Quilt Cover Set With
The scene you see above is undeniably feminine. That’s thanks to the Lola Quilt Cover Set being teamed with the unapologetically bold Premium Percale Sheets in Petal.
This look has turned up the soft blush tones, there’s no doubt about it. But you could easily pair Lola with terracotta sheets, oyster or moody green ones if you wanted to take the look in a more grounded direction.
And when it comes to cushions (you know how I feel about the amount of cushions you should have on a bed), I’d recommend the divine Cadence Cushion in Primrose. It’s an impressive newbie in the Lorraine Lea range and pairs so nicely with the gorgeous Meridian Cushion Cover.
Also In This Scene: Arwen Lamps, Baxter Floor Rug and Dhalia Vase.
Go Moodier with the Taya Brandy Quilt Cover Set
Lovers of Lorraine Lea will recognise their impressive Taya quilt cover set above, but you’ll be delighted to see it in a brand new colour story: Taya Brandy. This shade is a perfect fit for where interiors are headed; warmer and more visually inviting.
The quilted and ribbed fabric on this quilt cover set makes it perfect for the cooler months and will work well in so many bedrooms at home: main bedroom, teen room, tween space or guest bed. It’s a versatile base you can have fun adding accessories to.
Here the team have paired Taya with Premium Percale Sheets in Charcoal, but you could do yours in black or oyster to keep the look rich and moody, or try something lighter with shades like white, ecru, pewter or stone.
Also In This Scene: Meridian Cushion Cover, Meridian Throw Rug, Chester Lamp and the Indiana Vase in Amber.
Channel Desert Tones and a Boho Vibe with Arco
Lovers of a bohemian vibe at home are going to find the impressive Arco Quilt Cover Set a hard one to pass up. Of all the shades in the desert colours interior design trend, this one is the most intoxicating.
Not only does it evoke warmth and comfort with its burnt orange colour story, but there’s a wonderful sense of whimsy at play thanks to its considered pattern. I like this print because it gives you enough interest with it being busy. The best of both worlds!
This is a strong tone, so the choice is yours in terms of how you’ll dress the bed around it. Choose Premium Percale Sheets in White if you’re looking for a high-contrast look, or consider an earthier tone to keep the scene monochromatic.
Also In This Scene: Morrisey Floor Rug, Aspen Throw Rug, Aspen Cushion Cover.
Shani Takes the Desert Tones in a Softer Direction
The Shani Quilt Cover Set you see above taps into the desert colours interior design trend but with a lot less richness. If you find yourself drawn to lighter shades over more moody ones, the soft pink in this beauty certainly delivers.
Not only does Shani offer up colour that’s easy on the eye, but she also gives you loads of textural detail thanks to her crinkle finish. And there are loads of different directions you can take this in when it comes to the styling elements around it.
Premium Percale Sheets in White are a no-brainer if you want to keep the look simple and refined. But of course, if the terracotta tone of the Meridian Throw Rug above is catching your eye, consider carrying the colour into your sheets with a Flannelette Sheet Set in Brandy.
Seen Above: You can see how good soft furnishings in the desert colours interior design trend play together on a sofa. Isn’t the round Cadence Cushion in Terracotta the absolute standout here? It even shines as a solo player on an armchair, as seen below.

It’s that beautiful, Earthy Eucalyptus green that makes any room look refreshed ♡
We are currently renovating. The house is really coming together with a mid-century/scandi style that we love. The bedroom is next on the list and the Harbin with its beautiful olive colour and embossed texture would be perfect for an MCM retreat.
Elayna White Linen (king)It will be all white on the night and in the day I can play with the endless variations of colour and texture in bedroom accessories and linens, be they plain or patterned, the story is timeless….
I love the colour of the Edmonton, which would lift the bedroom, compliment the colours of the home and look fabulous all year round across every season.
I love Lola! Stunning colours and Australian design. The burgundy knit throw complements it perfectly
I love the beautiful Australian design and colours! I want one
The Flinders brings the outdoors in. My bedroom stays dark as I’m a shiftworker meaning I can’t have plants in there but with the Flinders I don’t need to. I think the cotton x sateen would feel AMAZING to slip into after a busy shift in the Emergency Department.
Lorraine Lea, you make it difficult to choose! But the stonewash look of Austin has my heart and I love that it can be used all year, with or without a quilt inside. Beautiful AND practical!
The whole desert collection is just stunning. The colors are amazing and would brighten up any home. We all need to change our bedroom style once in a while as it definitely gives you a feel good vibe. Lorraine Lea has been around for a long time and always continues to impress with their up to date linen. I just love this collection.
