How to put the Old Western touch in your home
It’s easier to get on with the job of doing up your home when you have specific ideas. It narrows down options and allows you uninterrupted time to mull over one theme so you come up with the best options. Take a look at some ideas to give your home a rustic western, cowboy touch:
As far as possible, go for the natural look.
- Go with a lot of dark colored wood and stone finishes. When you choose paints, rich, darker shades give an authentic feel to the décor. Shades of brown like beige and tan work well to give a spacious look. Other colors like black, burgundy and dark gray work look good when coupled with lighter shades of beige and tan.
- Add a pop of color with Native American rugs or quilts on wooden floors. Introduce colors into the room like deep russet, red, orange, green, yellow and blue colors in the form of cushions, throws or artwork and pictures on the walls. Use a lot of leather in the form of sofas and other seating arrangements. A burlap table lamp will add to the atmosphere.
- Saloon doors can complete the look. You can hunt for old saloon doors, maybe doors with bullet holes in a sale or you can get them made to your specification. Saloor doors or café doors are also known as bar doors and are ideal for a space that doesn’t need complete privacy. They create partial separation between two areas and allow light and sound to pass through while allowing for a measure of privacy. Take a look at Pinecroft Royal Orleans wood finished café doors. These swinging doors can remain in open position when needed. The doors can be stained or painted according to your requirements.
- Add some swivel bar stools around the bar area or near the breakfast counter to clinch the Old Western look. Boraam saddle swivel bar stools have a sleek oak finish and are made from solid hardwood. They fit comfortably into any décor and are sturdy and durable. A wagon wheel coffee table in the lounge area or living room will look right in place.
