  • Southwestern Decorating Ideas (1)

Looking for Southwestern decorating ideas? If you remember howling coyotes, twisted barbed wire wall plaques and everything from garden ornaments to bookends adorned with ranch brands or Texas stars, you may have shied away from Western and Southwestern decor and decorating styles. But the days of “Wild West” décor have pretty much gone the way of parading ducks and Sunflower Sue as decor staples. Thankfully!

Today’s trends are toward honest, individualistic, and easy-to-live-with. Style today doesn’t subscribe to a formula. The West and Southwest have not disappeared from the scene. If anything, today’s style brings fresh good looks, mix-and-match capabilities and the widespread appeal of sprawling land, blue skies, towering pines, and majestic vistas. You will find a wide variety of options for furnishing and decorating personalized, comfortable and appealing interiors.

Twenty-first-century style Western style is glamorous, upbeat, refined, colorful, comfortable and anything but kitschy! It’s a look we wholly embrace, and there’s enough variety to accommodate a wide world of preferences.

“Nancy Farina of the California Design Center describes Southwestern style architecture as large rooms, high ceilings and huge entryways to reflect “…the vastness of the Southwest landscape.” If your home has these features, try to purchase furniture that coincides with the size of your rooms. If you get furniture that is too small, for example, it can look lost and out of place in a large room. The same goes for a smaller home; avoid too-bulky furniture that can clutter a small room.”

If you are looking for Southwestern area rugs or Southwestern bedding, Canadian Log Homes has a wide variety to choose from.

The featured Southwestern-Style home in the image above is located in Santa Fe, N.M. and owned by Mary and Joe Clark. They were looking for a large home with ample space to entertain, and found a contemporary pueblo-style home on three-plus acres with views of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountains. They purchased it for $2.2 million in 2013. ‘I think I overuse the word magical when I talk about that home but it really is just kind of a magical property,’ says Mrs. Clark.

French doors open to outdoor space on each side of the concrete-floored living room. Hanging over the fireplace is a picture by the artist Caroline Christie. ‘People always comment on that photograph. It has a mirrored quality to it in person,’ says Mrs. Clark. Architect Robert Glazier renovated the home prior to couple owning it, and created an open living plan. The Clarks invested about $500,000 into their own updates.

The following two images are of a stunning Southwestern home that is located in Sante Fe, New Mexico, with a price tag of $4,999,000 USD. Hidden behind high walls, this secluded and private, one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece is located on Santa Fe’s historic Eastside. It was built in the 1890’s and is rich in history. The main residence was remodeled in 1989-90 reflecting the distinct architectural style of Santa Fe’s preeminent architect, John Midyette.

“With unmatched attention to detail, impeccable taste and artisan touches, the home is elegant and romantic. Classic flagstone, plank wood and brick floors throughout. Stunning walls with hand troweled plaster, remarkable hand painted doorways and fireplaces. Ancient old doors, exotic marble, carved accents and ancient beams adorn the property.

This beautiful vacation home was designed by Sara & Rich Combs who own several homes with a relaxed Southwestern style.

One of the design mantras they swear by is designing with natural materials as they have a tendency to enhance with us and celebrate age as character. They implement this design principal throughout their homes by including rustic woods, natural fibers, and earthenware. They wanted to find a sofa that would allow a casual atmosphere where guests could enjoy themselves without fear of ‘ruining’ something.

When they think of this room in particular they dream of movie nights, popcorn, glasses of wine, music, friends chatting, playing games etc. It’s a casual space, and so rather than creating rules around it they found a sofa that would hold up to some love, and wear in well over time. The slip-covered sofa is from SixPenny and is available in different colors and materials.

What is Southwestern Design?

Rugged and Natural

The best of the genre stems from nature, both in materials and spirit. It may reflect the rugged frontier landscapes or the nature of vast skies, brilliant sunsets and violent storms. It might also speak to the majesty of towering mountains and crashing waves, or the appeal of flowing streams, colorful land formations and wildlife. This diversity of natural resources translates into a cultural cornucopia as well, with a one-style-cannot-contain-it-all philosophy that embraces it all.

Western and Southwestern décor does not hesitate to mix materials: It stems from a history of using what was available. It seems appropriate and it makes sense. Go ahead and hang a chandelier of blackened iron dripping with polished crystals or opt for rusted metal forged into very contemporary shapes for wall sconces. Wrap a rustic beam with unadorned bulbs strung from exposed wiring for a contemporary twist on what could have been a “frontier” solution.

Mix graphic weavings with calico and plaid as easily as with soft leather and natural hides. Take color cues from the vibrancy of the sunset, cactus flower blooms, the eye-popping colors of Mexican weavings, or go subtle with hues from the desert, the prairie or gentle mountain valleys.

Elements of Southwestern Design

Southwestern Decor: Elements of the West

Texas is in no way similar to Alaska, just as New Mexico Pueblo differs from Southern California Mission and Rocky Mountain chic is totally dissimilar to Oregon Coastal. But the common theme is organic, the integration of function and beauty, and an appreciation of age, use and history as well as for well-worn and reclaimed materials. The architecture of the West and Southwest reflects history, but is not a slave to it. The West was changed by settlers arriving from other areas, and decorating preferences are still influenced by what is popular elsewhere.
Native American and First Nation peoples exert yet another influence on Western and Southwestern decorating. Mix Navajo rugs with contemporary furniture, dress your beds with native weavings, upholster furniture in eye-popping graphics and stock up on North Woods blankets in historic designs.

Set your table with embellished Mexican silver, collect hand-thrown pottery and decorated serving pieces. Think about copper, hammered or weathered, for sinks, countertops, table surfaces and kitchenware. Collect old wood pieces just because they are weathered and scarred. Put the old and damaged to new use. Just as the West was changed by settlers arriving from the East, by the railroads and highways and population growth, decorating preferences are still influenced by what is popular elsewhere, and by the past.

Quirks and Tangents

Perhaps, most importantly, Western & Southwestern décor is not fussy, and should not require a lot of polishing and upkeep. Keep the emphasis on comfort and orient your lifestyle toward ease. You will have more time and energy to enjoy family and friends, pursue activities you enjoy, and enable your home to function as a personal retreat where you can be yourself.

You need not fear choosing a color palette from one region and tossing in an artistic accent or a weaving from another area. It works; natural elements and expressive arts reflect individuality.

If you love the symbolism of a Texas Star, go ahead and hang one on your wall. The same goes for a rusting Route 66 sign, a cowgirl poster, a lifelike buffalo – or even that laughable howling coyote – Your decorating style should reflect your personality. It should put a smile on your face! Why live any other way?

At its heart, this style is an individual expression of taste and preference. If it suits the way you choose to live, use it. Incorporate the elements you love into your décor and you will always be stylish, even as trends come and go.

Ranch Style House Home Tour

August 23rd, 2022|

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas. The owner desired an ample yet understated home with natural and simple architectural expression that would blend effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.

Beautiful Country Homes Tour

August 16th, 2022|

This post features tours of beautiful country homes designed by Beth Webb, an internationally recognized interior designer admired for her tactile, serene, and dynamic spaces.

Layered light is another crucial element bringing a sense of warmth, romance and contentment to Beth’s interiors.

Atlanta Traditional Country Home

August 14th, 2022|

Today we begin a tour of a stunning Atlanta home where the pallet was inspired by the home owner’s (Jane Hight) vast collection of blue-and-white Imari porcelain inherited from her mother and grandmother. Having served as the accountant for interior designer Lauren DeLoach for several years, it was natural for Hight to enlist the designer’s help when decorating her home. When it came to a color palette, the pair looked no further than Hight’s beloved family porcelain. “While we knew we would use blue, finding the right shade took some study,” says DeLoach. “We didn’t want a too-saturated hue, but we didn’t want it too pale. We also needed another color to add punctuation marks here and there, so the salmon hue came from the Imari porcelain.”

Girls Farmhouse Bedroom Ideas

August 10th, 2022|

Children's farmhouse bedrooms are cozy and charming and provide easy opportunity to make a few seamless changes as they mature. Farmhouse-style is all about clean lines and classic patterns and is characterized by welcoming whites, a penchant for wood and folksy accents. In this post, I have included a broad range of girl’s farmhouse bedrooms that depict the traditional farmhouse aesthetic to rooms that introduce a bolder color palette. The goal is to create a room that suits your child’s individuality, is attractive, comfortable and flexible enough to grow with your child. That way you won’t have to redecorate for many years to come.

White Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

August 1st, 2022|

Kitchen cabinets come in a wide variety of colors, with white being one of the most popular choices. One of the main benefits of white kitchens is that they never go out of style, they coordinate with everything and create natural light reflection. White kitchen cabinets are timeless and the perfect choice for those who want to create a blank canvas and plant to add interest with flooring, window treatments, artwork, and area rugs. White cabinets can instantly brighten a kitchen and provide the illusion of more space. To avoid creating a kitchen that feels cold, consider adding a splash of color or texture, and mixing white cabinets with contrasting countertops or backsplashes.

Cream Kitchen Cabinet Ideas

August 2nd, 2022|

Cream kitchen cabinets have increasingly grown in popularity over the past few years – and for good reason! Cream is warmer than white and lends a timeless and luxurious look to a kitchen design. Cream-colored cabinets work in many different design styles, from modern to rustic, traditional, country, and farmhouse. They also are available in a wide variety of cabinet styles including shaker, recessed, and raised panel. Cream is a soft hue that is as timeless as white or gray but warmer, making it easier on the eyes and helping to make any space feel less clinical. It also pairs effortlessly with any accent color or material, from brass finishes to dark woods.
