If you’re like me, you’ve always been mesmerized by the beauty of the Arizona desert. The vibrant color palette, the unique weather, the ambient sounds, and the organic living—there’s just something about living in the desert that feels special.
As I began to rethink my own Arizona home and lifestyle, I realized that I didn’t just want a beautiful home in the desert, I wanted a place that would inspire me every single day. I wanted a home that would reflect my personality, my values, and my love for the desert.
And that’s exactly what I discovered on my journey to rethinking my Arizona home and lifestyle. In this blog post, I’ll share my finds, tips and inspiration that have helped me find joyful, organic living in the desert.

Discovering Joyful Living in the Desert


Desert Colors:
One of the first things you’ll notice about the desert is the vibrant color palette. From the deep reds and oranges of the sunset to the cool blue of the nighttime sky, the desert offers a stunning array of colors that can inspire your own personal style.
To incorporate these colors into your home, consider replacing your neutral colors with shades that mimic the desert tones. You can also incorporate natural materials like wood, stone, and clay to bring the outdoors indoors.

Desert Weather:
Living in the desert means navigating a unique climate that can be challenging at times. But if you take the time to understand and respect the desert weather, you can find that it can also be a source of joy.
For example, the hot summers can be offset by the mild winter weather. And if you embrace the dry air, it can actually be good for your skin and hair. The occasional dust storm can also be beautiful in its way, and serve as a reminder to appreciate the beauty around you.
Ambient Sounds:
One of the most distinctive aspects of desert living is the ambient sounds. From the rustling of palm leaves to the chirping of birds, the desert is alive with sound.
To create a serene and peaceful environment in your home, consider incorporating natural materials like bamboo or bamboo-blend fabrics that offer sound-absorbing properties. You can also create a courtyard or outdoor space that allows you to enjoy the ambient sounds of the desert even more.
