This month the famed San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo is coming to town. It’s a great time to celebrate a time-honored Texas tradition and stock up on Western décor. If you’ve never experimented with Western interior design it can be a little intimidating, because it’s a very bold look that can go overboard quickly.

Take a look at modern ways our design experts work Western decor into homes in San Antonio.

Unique Textiles

One of the most identifiable aspects of Western décor is the colorful textiles emblazoned with traditional Native American prints. These hand-woven rugs are so beautiful that many people hang them on the wall instead of laying them on the ground. Another way to incorporate Western textiles is with a warm throw thrown across the back of the couch. If you are on the adventurous side consider adding a recliner with graphic Western upholstery.

Another uniquely Western textile is cowhide. Large cowhide rugs are a real showpiece that should be placed in low traffic areas like underneath a coffee table. Suede and leather are also great options for your furniture.

Colors of the West
Take inspiration from the brush land and deserts of Western Texas when you are selecting a color palette. Warm browns, yellows, rust red and pops of sky blue offer the perfect mix of colors.

Art and Accessories

The Wild West has always had an allure. There’s something about the wide-open spaces and untamed countryside that brings out the adventurer in all of us. Art pieces that feature the picturesque landscape, galloping horses and rushing rivers have long been popular in Western paintings.  Look for picture frames made of weathered wood to compliment the artwork.

Metalwork is also very popular in Western décor. It’s reminiscent of the frontiersmen that had to forge their own tools and shoe their own horses while heading west. Consider getting a wrought iron chandelier to bring Western décor into a dining or living area. Another popular option is accessories or furniture with nailhead trim details.

Solid-wood Furniture

It may look worn-in, but the heavy solid-wood pieces of Western décor are built to last a lifetime. Second-hand pieces are an affordable way to work authentic Western décor into any room.

Lived-in Flooring

Western is all about looking comfortable and lived in. Handscraped hardwood flooring is a fantastic option for a Western-inspired living space. If you’re working on a smaller budget consider laminate handscraped floors or a Saltillo tile.
