Road to Rodeo: Blending Tropics and Outback in Interior Design

Our first rodeo experience in the outback was memorable. Sitting on a ferris wheel, we enjoyed panoramic views of the event. Witnessing our son's classmate compete was incredible, and the delicious giant turkey legs satisfied our appetites.

This event inspired me to create a new interior design look called "Road to Rodeo." This style blends elements of the tropics and the outback to create a personalised space. The neutral colour palette complements personal artwork, including a black and white edited photo from the rodeo and the black and white "Palm Esperance" piece. I have curated a selection of products for those passionate about the outback lifestyle.

For those who prefer a contemporary or minimalist look, I have included a range of styles and products to suit all tastes and budgets. The key is to make your space truly your own by incorporating items that have personal meaning. The "Road to Rodeo" mood board showcases a range of furniture pieces from different eras, including vintage and rustic styles. These pieces add character and personality to a space and can be personalized to reflect one's unique style and experiences. The cushions featured in this mood board are a great way to add a pop of color and texture to any space, and the mix of materials creates an interesting visual and tactile experience. The palm prints on the cushions add a touch of tropical elegance to the otherwise rustic country-inspired decor, bridging the gap between two styles. The use of natural materials like cane and rattan in furniture design creates a warm, inviting atmosphere in any space. The rattan and cane furniture pieces in the Road to Rodeo mood board add a touch of rustic charm to the decor and perfectly complement the neutral color palette. The style of decor that incorporates cane and rattan furniture is often referred to as bohemian or eclectic and celebrates individuality and diversity.

Please note some images are my own + others via Pinterest with my artwork edited to show a style guide of how this piece could be displayed.
