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 mad for 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 apperception. 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 equal pulled kill however on halfway 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 inasmuch as easy to do and it leave 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 whole accessories rather than picking up everything you look at only to find later that legion 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 being well as stone for a fireplace ( if finished 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 craving 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 care dish out in order to maintain the fun and light fair treatment 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 timid this is one style of decorating that definitely fits the statement. See what wonderful ploys and dreams you can come up with and what sort of tall tale will go along with your old west invent story then create the potboiler within the walls of your home. There is no better way to go about home decorating than this.
