Southwest Style: Represent!

Southwest Style: Represent!

Typical Southwest style can get a bad rap what with the proliferation of Kokopelli and dreamcatchers it's easy to think that that's all there is. But with how many people have already signed up for the Fall Cure in the Southwest I can't wait to see some mad style coming out of there. Plus, I've just spent 5 days in Moab, Utah soaking in the blue skies and red rocks so I know firsthand that the landscape can inspire. So tell me, what did I miss?

Architects like Rick Joy are transforming the landscape and the hot, dry desert is a prime place to try out solar heating and power. So what else? In a small town like Moab I didn't see any of that. I also wasn't looking very hard since I was there to be outside! But with the beauty of the landscape and the realtively cheap cost of property people are making it work and doing it with style. What design do us left coasters miss out on as tourists in the Southwest? How about you Texas? Arizona, Utah, Nevada? We want to hear from you!
