So what exactly is southwestern home decor and how can you get it into your own home? Well, to start with southwestern home decor reflects the southwest and all its best traits. Southwestern home decor means colourful throw rugs, gorgeous wall hangings, and if you look hard enough, you can even find great kitchen accessories as well.
If you’re considering bringing southwestern home decor into your residence, first of all, you need to check whether it will blend in with your existing decor or whether it will clash horribly. Almost all southwestern home decor involves bright, eye-catching colours and stunning designs and motifs.
So, if your existing furniture would clash with any of these lovely pieces, you can do one of two things. First up, you could always just ditch all your old furniture and replace them with gorgeous pieces of southwestern home decor. Or you could just buy one or two pieces of the southwestern home dcor range and match them carefully with your existing pieces.
Personally speaking, I would just love to replace everything I already have since there’s some wear, but in reality that’s just not possible. For one thing it would just be too expensive, and for another I would rather not have to listen to a lecture from my mother about waste. I’ve found that you can escape from your friends but not from your mother!
However, I’m also a little happy that I didn’t give into my initial impulse and renovate everything in a southwestern home decor style. Granted that it does look really nice, but sometimes I also like the serenity that some of my other pieces of furniture bring about in me. Therefore, I have now come up with the perfect solution and have instead decided on purchasing one-off pieces that catch my attention and dotting my home with those instead.
And I have to admit that its made quite a difference to the look and feel of my entire home. Lush and rich pieces of the more traditional furniture now rest quite comfortably with the more vibrant and stunning designs of my southwestern home decor. I’ve also got hold of a great throw rug for my bathroom floor along with a gorgeous set of bathing towels. My kitchen sports a new set of southwestern motifs, and my foyer has the most wonderful lampshade and statue in prominent view.
Although all of this might sound a bit much, I’ve found that this is the easiest way to bring the splendours of southwestern home decor into my life, without going the whole hog and replacing my whole house with southwestern decor and motifs.
After all, you only want to bring a splash of southwestern decor to your home, not the whole sheebang. Oh, and did I forget to mention the gorgeous tapestry I bought the other day? It’s just perfect.
