I have truly been contemplating buying really, really cheap land in the desert where no one much is around, and alot of it, and building a home there. Expenses of course would be getting the electricity in and getting water delivered, but the privacy would be pristine. This design of home is more modern than my tastes run but I could see those Navahoe print blankets switched out for Omani bedouin ones and this house being somewhere close the Oryx preserve in Oman.
Couldn't this home be perfectly at peace in Al Wusta, Oman?
Just add some black and white photographs of Omani landscapes, switch out the wood walls with stone or plaster, and add a sprinkling of these for your next door neighbors:
