Creating a Texas-inspired space means designing an interior with elements that are bigger and better, just like the state! Whether you live in Texas, or you wish you did, add these touches to your home and you will feel like you just stepped onto the ranch.
1. Texas Inspired Touches
No matter where you live in the state, you are proud to be a Texan. Incorporating décor that features a Texas history-inspired theme, or displays symbols of the Lone Star state are more than welcomed in a traditional Texas home. These elements can be as small or as elaborate as you like, but embracing Texas culture is a must-do.
2. Rustic Wood
Another characteristic of a classic Texas home is the use of rustic wood throughout the home. Ideally, it is incorporated within the home’s wood beams and fireplace mantels. Indigenous woods such as Spanish Oak, Black Cherry, and Texas Ash add warmth and character to the space. Wood can also be used in fine details such as furniture and wall décor.
One of the focal points of a Texas home should be leather furniture. This can be a sofa, chair, or ottoman. Leather associates your mind with certain aspects of Texas such as saddles, ranches, and superior craftsmanship.
When it comes to décor, nothing is as equivocal to cattle ranching as cowhide fabric. Available in a variety of colors and sizes, cowhide can be added to your design by something as large as a rug, and as small as a throw pillow.
Living on a Texas ranch is also about simplifying your life, so get rid of anything that doesn’t serve a purpose. Choose warm, rich colors such as charcoal and brown with distressed textures to create a comfortable tone that any Texan rancher would be proud to call home.
