Designer colour scheme: Rural Retreat

Love them or hate them, The Kardashian-Jenner family aren’t one to shy away from lavish real-estate purchases with their pretty enviable property portfolio. Kris’s Palm springs rural retreat has become a KUWTK & SHFL family fave. As you can probably tell from our chosen pop-culture references, our HAYU subscription is getting a workout. With winter gearing up, can you blame us for binging a little reality? There’s only one thing better than watching the K.J family bicker; our rural retreat-style guide.


Being able to close the door and take time to relax and unwind is an incredibly rewarding experience, which our collection is designed to amplify. Kris’ extravagant, contemporary Palm Springs retreat is located on a secluded golf-course with breathtaking mountain views and natural lighting – far from the prying eyes of the paparazzi. Gosh, what a burden they must be * roll eyes *. Naturally, Kris Jenner’s 100-foot swimming pool reflects the desert sunsets, but we think nothing beats the rural escape of our sunburnt country. Escape your daily stresses with our rural retreat style guide. It promises the same California getaway vibe and thankfully, doesn’t cost $20 million, okrrrr!

Exterior colour palette: palm springs chic

One of the hallmarks of this design theme is the use of rustic materials throughout, including stunning exposed brickwork and textured feature stone walls. The sense of prestige and luxury in the exterior design provides the perfect setting to debrief on your romances, trademarked momager business ventures and goss – but hopefully with a little less scandal than the Kardashian clan are used to. Because, after all, at a rural retreat, relaxation and tranquility are key.

To help the feature walls pop in your rural retreat, dark tones such as Colorbond Monument steel in black or Harmony roof tiles in Austral black are highly effective and create a bold, modern edge. As you wander through the home, you’ll notice the light, airy nature reflected in the featured colour palette and the feng shui-approved design. The soft Rural Oak Laminex flooring works beautifully with the Wattyl Moody White and Wattyl Scribbly Gum paintwork, with feature artwork and accessories helping to add warmth and vibrancy to the space.

Ok, so your home might not be in the Coachella Valley, but the alfresco area oozes rural, Palm Springs vibes with a concrete aggregate flooring, feature stone walls and wooden accents throughout. Combine with cosy accessories and lush greenery, and it’s the ideal year-round space for catching up over a Poosh-approved matcha tea.

Interior selections that are so chill

Few Keeping up with the Kardashian fans know that Kris Jenner released a book of her favourite family recipes in 2014. Of course, we were one of the few fans who did (duh), so before you go google, we’ve linked it here for your viewing pleasure: ‘In the kitchen with Kris: a Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favourites’, and yes, there’s a kindle version. Cooking and entertaining provide a fantastic way to chill out after a long day – and our collection amplifies this with a calming kitchen design. The feature Laminex Rural Oak cabinetry sets off the Essastone Limestone Cape benchtops, while the feature splashback offers an attractive focal point. The perfect spot for matriarch Kris Jenner’s favourite, healthy turkey enchiladas filled with cheese, a touch of drama and more cheese. Don’t have a kool mill in the bank to furnish your home? We gotchu. Take a scroll through our rural retreat kurated kollection. Ok, fine, we’ll stop with the ‘k’s. (or not):

Make your own rural retreat:

1. The aptly named ‘Coachella leather chair in tan’ by Adairs Home Republic collection will have you feeling like you’re lounging poolside in Palm Springs.

2. For added texture and warmth, consider this Isla Pu Cushion in a rich caramel from Target (said tarrjay).

3. You didn’t think we were going to get through a blog without mentioning Kmart, did you now?
Kardashians aside, Kmart is definitely our fave K word. This rustic, black stained timber side drawer is a total classic.

4. Spotlight’s Cooper and Co Sunset glow artwork 100 x 140cm will do just as its name suggests, give your space a glow-up.

5. You’ll need a hint of luxury in your rural retreat, magnolia foliage and budding branch from Sea Holly is a perfect low-maintenance, front-facing arrangement for your entry table.

6. Matt Blatt’s Shangri-La Morocco Rattan Buffet will add a layer of rustic, sophisticated luxury. A perfect pair with the warmth of the Scribbly Gum colour base.

7. Another one from the Kmart Kollection, this Noir side table will host your matcha lattes like nobody’s business.

8. And lastly, we’ve got the Black Maya Ceramic Table Lamp by Temple & Webster featuring a gorge natural textured lampshade and deep, charcoal base to compliment the woodland grey door palette.
