designing for the desert

I am often asked why I incorporate color in my designs as opposed to using a monochromatic pallet of white or beige. I have always believed that the desert offers a great backdrop for color. The natural desert flora has a plethora of vivid and intense colors that I like to incorporate in my designs.Whether it is the yellow you find in brittle bush acacia or mesquite flowers, the orange in desert mallow or purples you find in Texas sage and desert willow, each locale and site offers its own unique colorations.
