Fresh off of Coachella with summer in sight, desert inspired style, decor, accessories, and art are particularly hot right now. (See what I did there? Hot – summer, desert, cacti. wink wink!) Bad puns aside, we’ve rounded up our favorite cactus inspired items should you want to throw this trend into your current style. Believe us, it wasn’t easy to narrow down!
A neutral tote is a necessity. A cactus tote is just awesome. This one found at The Future Kept.
I’m a bit of a hand cream addict and I find that all Illume products are particularly luxurious. Their lavish hand cream in any scent is…well, lavish! Our pick: Illume Cactus Verde Lavish Hand Creme pictured above. Buy it online or stop in Anthropologie.
Postcards are a lost (and missed) sentiment! Send them, receive them, buy them, and as I like to do – frame them and hang them! Cute postcards make great, inexpensive art for your home. These cactus postcards come in a set of 8 4×6 prints for only $12! Too great, right?
Accessorize your accessories! Keep your gadgets on trend with this cactus phone case. I love the simple blue and mint green design, and that it’s not too feminine. Other options that caught our eye can be found on Brika and Keep.
Pillows are the easiest way to inexpensively change up your decor or color scheme. Throw this cactus pillow on a chair or two and it will quickly add a summer vibe to your home. (And who doesn’t want it to feel like summer?)
Simple gold necklaces go with everything and are the best, classiest “everyday” necklaces to have. Change it up with this cactus shape pendant from JewelMint.
If you don’t have a green thumb, go with succulents! If you live in California, we’re in a drought, so definitely go with succulents! If you’re looking for a good hostess or housewarming gift, go with succulents in this wooden planter. It’s simple, chic, modern, and neutral enough to lend itself to any household decor. It’s a pricier planter, but definitely worth it!
Everyone has a denim shirt (right?), but a denim shirt with a light cactus print takes it up a knotch. Pair it with a cute skirt, tie it in a knot (if that’s your thing), and boom – you’re ready, comfortable, and on point!
If you don’t want desert themed overload in your home, this pretty watercolor print is a simple and light way to fold the trend into your current scheme. The print we picked is $30 from The Aestate. Warning: while you’re there, you will be tempted to blow your budget. Everything she does is absolutely beautiful.
