In her living room, Annie paired an earthy and neutral jute rug with pattern-heavy custom draperies and custom-upholstered furniture and topped off existing neutral sofas with coordinating retro-inspired pillows and throws. If you’re eyeing those amazing Moroccan lanterns, we’re sorry to report that Annie found those one-of-a-kind beauties at one of her favorite vintage shops in Palm Springs!

In her bedroom, Annie developed her color palette from this bold piece of art and incorporated pops of those bright hues throughout the space. Take her upholstered headboard for instance, paired with pink bedding. To add a little MCM zing, Annie’s added patterned pillows and a coordinating linen throw to the mix. Custom draperies and a geometric wing back chair finish off the design. Shop this desert escape look here!
