This is a 1950’s style, or 1960’s or 1970’s, a look backwards in decorating. Geometric patterns are used, even on floors, along with colored appliances (green or gold or even red) and shag rugs, lava lamps and tie-dyed fabrics.

The southwest look uses pottery, sandy colors, woven blankets with Indian designs, and cactus.

I must add a note here. I knew a woman and her whole house was done in southwest style, but oh, my, so overdone with Kokopelli figures and pottery everywhere. It was almost nauseating and I felt bad for her because she obviously didn’t know she’d gone overboard.
