Using Western Tapestries To Enhance Country Home Decor

Mar 28, 2008
Western tapestries are the icons of Native American and rustic style home decorating. If you like southwestern and western decor, you will no doubt enjoy decorating with colorful tapestries in your rustic cabin, room or home. No matter how they are used, you will find that rustic tapestries, when used as a tapestry wall hanging or tapestry wall art, will brighten your home and give it an authentic southwest feel.

A lot of times people will add area rugs and runners to the rooms in their homes but do not think of using wall tapestries made of the same beautiful material to dress their walls. The truth is that a wall tapestry is one of the simplest ways to decorate your space and bring life to your home decorating. In addition, western tapestries work well as beautiful artwork, worthy of display, because they are hand loomed.

There are so many interesting designs to choose from that you will easily be able to buy the perfect southwestern tapestry style to go along with your home decor. Southwest decorating usually uses purples, pinks and turquoise, like the colors found in the desert.

Western themes look great with beautiful accent colors like red, black and grey. For a Native Indian feel, there are several patterns to choose from with the Navajo storm pattern being one of the most popular. Unlike years ago when certain colors were not easy to get, you can now find beautiful colors in every type of woven rug, and tapestry designs that keep getting more intricate.

The wonderful thing about decorating with southwest tapestries is that you can put them anywhere in your home. Use them as a hanging tapestry or as area rugs to complement rustic furniture and southwestern accessories. Or, put them in doorways, in hallways, and in front of couches and chairs to fill empty floor space.

Use them in entryways or where you might normally include a framed picture for a creative design style. To achieve a more casual style, hang them at an angle to accentuate that it is wall hanging art. You will be amazed at how much value they add to your home decor and how they impress your visitors.

When you begin your interior decorating, use your color samples to choose which western tapestries and tapestry rugs to decorate with in your rooms, and you will be excited with how they enhance the decor in your home.

When you make your choices, do not settle for cheap looking imitations that will reduce the quality of your home. Select wool tapestries and tapestry rugs that are well made and crafted by hand since hand made wool is more durable and is best for creating the look you want

Add new life to your favorite room with a little taste of the old west, or enhance the decor in your whole home using western tapestries and tapestry rugs to create that great designer southwest style. Today it is easier than ever to find colorful tapestries to use in your home decor.

Many people buy them online or in stores that sell western and rustic home decorating items. If you are looking for a way to get that one of a kind rustic or southwestern style in your home decorating, begin by including the Native designs and colors of western tapestries.
