Motifs used on wallpapers center around cowboys, bear, moose, pine trees, cattle, oaks, pine, lakes and rivers. Hunting and riding scenes are also much favored motifs and figure in western home decorating ideas as are wild flowers and bushes.
For western style home decor, you can use fabric that is not exquisite, but rough, tough and a bit coarse textured. Try and avoid using shiny leather and settle for matte finishes which gels well with the era. If at all you have to put in some shine, use them sparingly. Fur, woven rugs, denims and tweeds are quintessentially western in nature and are best used for fabric ideas and may also be used for upholstery.
Western home decorating ideas suggest an accent on anything that is old and antique but rugged in looks and nature. That also goes for your private nook. Your bedroom can feature furnishing and linen that look wild and rough but are cozy at the same time.
Leather strips, dry flowers, quilts, mirrors in twig frames, rawhide lampshades as accessories can figure in western home decorating ideas. With wooden floors, the fireplace and mantle with liberal bronze artifacts are prerequisites for a western style living room interior with artwork on oil, vintage photos and paintings.
