Western Style Can Blend Seamlessly With Traditional Decor If You Plan Ahead
At times, doing the obvious with keenness and passion can produce great results. A combination of two home decors can lead to outstanding results, producing high-quality atmosphere rich in innovation, culture, tradition, and history. Bringing Western or cowboy décor decorations into a traditional scheme will bring the above-mentioned results.
Blending casual, outdoors-centered cowboy décor elements with mildly quieter traditional elements will create an energetic feel which enhances comfort. Cowboy and traditional décor designs aim at creating comfort to occupants of a room. The combination achieves this by the complement of simple furniture with little intricate details and clean lines. Wood and natural fabrics go a long way in enhancing the appearance of both home decors.
Natural finishes like brass, oiled wood, leather, hand weaving and wrought iron enliven cowboy and traditional schemes. Colors should suggest the tone of water, earth, the sky and plantation common to the Southwest and the West. Accessories with bright colors should be minimum. Subdue light levels without making them come out as dim.
Traditional and western home décor bring out a hospitable mood that makes people feel relaxed. Sticking to common principles helps you add several elements one by one until you achieve the results that provide the satisfaction you desire.
Designers have different style management with various formulas but in the end, you are the judge to what combinations satisfy your decorative needs.
A western design can be achieved by bridging cowboy and traditional designs with a single pallet of colors. Recalling natural fabric dyes and hues of clay tiles and adobe brick, western colors from blues to reds and browns are warm, mute and soothing to the eye.
Natural wood tones should be between light and dark. For a broad range of color choices, oranges, yellows, and nature-based greens tend towards warmth: marigold hues, russet, and sage fit better in the scheme compared to tangerine, neon yellows or acid greens.
Contrasting colors with black and browns makes them gain vibrancy. Doing this is advisable in comparison to using monochromatic schemes. Geometric patterns and solid fabric colors blend well with tie cowboy-traditional décor. Considering geometric patterns appear in numerous types of hand waves, traditional southwestern area rugs or western area rugs will fit perfectly with a Navajo blanket that is used much like a couch-throw. Alike paisley motifs give the impression of fabrics and Western bandana prints from India.
Check echo fabrics and simple stripes that could be made by home weavers.
Ginghams and calico prints recall valued buys from a dry-goods store. Polished bare wood with occasional rugs also conveys a decent theme. A different option is using area rugs on dark-toned carpets. Wrought iron bracket covered with a strong-color fabric or handwoven fabrics with framed pieces can replace traditional decorative prints. Open or course weaves mix shades into the scheme. Natural fibers like wool, cotton or synthetics which strongly imitate natural textures are excellent options.
The quality of light during night or daytime can sabotage or support your general design goals. Historically, hacienda and ranch houses used roof overhangs, deep-sill windows, and trees to screen hot sunlight.
Modern combined décor uses window treatments to mute intense daylight. Artificial daylight should be more diffused rather than focused to a point where semi-opaque lampshades convey the lamp-light atmosphere you desire. Wrought-iron fixtures or lantern-style from a chandelier to table lamps reflect the times when blacksmithing was a trade as well an art.
Accessories like wrought iron, hand weaving and other crafts with simple natural materials portray the feel of a home that belongs to a cowboy.
Different metals, from silverwork to tinware reflect both a Native American and settler artisan traditions. Woodcarving and leatherwork range from trunks and storage boxes to furniture making. Stamped metal stars, metal pitchers full of dried native grasses or oval Conchos edging from a wood shelf’s rim, woven grass mats or earth-glazed pottery honor home-based craftsmen that brought beauty to different homes.
