Bringing The Old West To Modern Home Decorating

Bringing The Old West To Modern Home Decorating



Bringing the Old West to​ Modern Home Decorating
What could be more fun when you​ think about it​ than incorporating the age-old story of​ cowboys and​ Indians into your​ home décor? for​ those who love a​ great story and​ have a​ wild sense of​ adventure this​ could be an​ incredibly fabulous design theme for​ your​ next home decorating project .​
this​ is​ a​ great way to​ bring the rustic charm of​ the old west into the modern world of​ today's busy lifestyles .​
Immediately visions of​ the hacienda with knotty pine and​ leather upholstered furniture comes to​ mind .​
Massive fireplaces and​ antlers everywhere are also first and​ foremost in​ my mind when this​ design idea pops into my head .​
The possibilities are as​ endless as​ your​ imagination​ and​ only limited by your​ budget in​ all honesty .​
this​ is​ a​ look that could be pulled off however on​ almost any budget for​ those that are willing to​ make a​ few thrift store purchases along the way while investing a​ fair amount of​ elbow grease.
One thing you​ want to​ be careful of​ with this​ particular theme is​ not taking it​ too far .​
this​ could be so easy to​ do and​ it​ will only subtract from the charm and​ appeal if​ you​ do so .​
Choose the accessories carefully but implement them minimally .​
this​ should also help with potential budget restrictions as​ well as​ keep you​ on​ track for​ finding the perfect accessories rather than picking up everything you​ see only to​ find later that many simply will not work with the style and​ design you​ are hoping to​ achieve in​ the long run.
Wood floors and​ wood paneled walls are a​ great statement for​ this​ sort of​ décor as​ well as​ stone for​ a​ fireplace (if​ there is​ a​ fireplace of​ courses) .​
you​ want solid furniture rather than something that appear fragile or​ dainty and​ you​ definitely want to​ keep the room masculine in​ appearance if​ at​ all possible .​
Home decorating in​ the style of​ the old west isn't for​ bachelors alone but too much of​ a​ feminine touch will simply kill the appeal all together .​
in​ fact, the less feminine touches the better save these touches for​ a​ romantic bedroom or​ bathroom rather than the primary areas that friends and​ family will visit .​
you​ will also want to​ take great pains to​ imitate the rustic nature of​ the old west within​ the kitchen .​
No delicate china patterns or​ tables with legs that look like that might fall off with a​ hard wind .​
this​ is​ a​ 'mans' style of​ decorating and​ it​ needs to​ look as​ though it​ will withstand​ any punishment a​ man can dish out in​ order to​ maintain​ the fun and​ light appeal of​ the remainder of​ the home .​
you​ can find modern sinks, fixtures, and​ hardware that are designed to​ resemble those of​ the old west and​ beyond if​ you​ look in​ the right places.
for​ those who are looking for​ something a​ little out of​ the ordinary this​ is​ one style of​ decorating that definitely fits the bill .​
See what wonderful schemes and​ dreams you​ can come up with and​ what sort of​ tall tale will go along with your​ old west design story then create the story within​ the walls of​ your​ home .​
There is​ no better way to​ go about home decorating than this​ .​
