Western Style Home Decorating

Western Style Interior

Itching to add some western-style or cowboy-style decorating touches around your home?

Great choice! There is something timeless and enchanting about this style of home decorating.

Closely related–and possibly the same–are rustic style, log cabin style, and mountain style decorating, regardless of what you call it, this type of interior design will center upon the use of natural materials.

The first thing you’ll want to do is evaluate how you can add more natural wood, metal, rock, and leather to your room.

When it comes to furniture, Western style is most often large and bulky, but simple in design and structure, look for lots of bare wood.

Fabrics tend to Native American prints, Cowboy prints, or outdoorsy-kinds of prints.

If busy prints are not your cup of tea, consider matte-finish leather, denim, suede, or nubbly weaves.

To achieve a natural and authentic look, choose pieces of furniture true to the style you want to represent, and accentuate those pieces with pottery placed on tables and artwork that reflects western or Mexican themes.

When it comes to decorating a room or home with western touches, strive to provide a natural look and authentic atmosphere by taking the “less is more” approach. check out the post right here

Colors should be those found in nature, such as rich browns, dark greens, dark reds, golds, etc. Other colors might include rock gray, metal black, and cream.

Add Western motifs such as knickknacks, blankets, wall hangings, pillows, and more.

This would include motifs such as cowboys, saddles, horses, Native American crafts, wild animals found in forests and mountains, rivers, wildflowers, etc.

Older, vintage items will go well with Western home decorating too.

Look for bold-colored quilts, old saddle blankets, barrels, weathered farm tools, and so on.

If you’re crafty (or know someone who is), you can really let your imagination run wild when it comes to western home decorating, use old horseshoes as candle holders on your wall or as bookends.

Old Western Ranch

Take bandannas and sew them into pillows, quilt squares, or even lampshade covers.

“Plant” dried flowers in old Mason jars and scatter them around on your side tables and bookcases.

Your floors in a western style home should also be natural… preferably hardwood or recycled plank flooring.

But they could also be made from flagstone.

Be sure to scatter western-style area rugs around though, because natural floors can be cold!

If you can, don’t use window treatments… just leave them bare, especially if you have a great view of the mountains or other natural settings, but, if you must use window coverings, keep them simple, such as plain valances, straight panels, or shutters.

Lighting needs to go with the western style of your home decorating too.

Vintage lamps are great, but you can use almost any lamps made from wood and metal.

Lampshades made of stretched rawhide will really add to that cowboy feel, but the rule here is plain and functional.

Other decorative details might include beading, fringe, twig accents, nailhead designs, metal drawer pulls and doorknobs, and anything made from logs.

Pottery and stoneware will also enhance the look.
