If you want to bring Texas into your home, then there are some ways you can decorate the home that will help you to achieve this great western look that people will recognize as Texas-themed right away. Here are some of the many things you can do around your house to make it look like a Texas house.

Choose the right colors

When you want to give the interior of your home a Texas look, you will want to stick with colors that help bring the look together. Your home should have earth tones painted on the walls, anything from tan to light brown will work. You can even go with a light rust color if you choose. You should, however, steer clear of blues and yellows because these colors are best reserved for beach-themed homes. When it comes to the carpet, also go with browns, rust colors, or tans.

Use the right drapes

When it comes to your window coverings, you want to make sure you stick with that earth-tones color scheme; if your walls are tan, the window coverings can be dark brown, dark rust, or even black. No matter what color you do go with, you want to be sure that the same color is used somewhere else in the room, even if it's just on some of the throw pillows.

Use plenty of wood and wrought iron furniture

In order for a home to really have a Texas look, you have to make sure there is plenty of wood furniture. You will have a hard time getting a Texas vibe out of a home that has artsy furniture or furniture from another era. Your wood furniture can have wrought iron along with wood because wrought iron will help pull that Texas look into the room.

Decorate with Texas artwork

One of the most important things for you to do when you are trying to achieve a Texas look is to make sure the artwork you put on display in your home is Texas artwork. Your pictures can display things like cattle, horses, rodeo moments, and more. Along with hanging Texas themed pictures on the wall, you can also find plenty of other types of decor. A few examples of some of the other types of artwork you can display include Texas-themed decorative plates, knick-knacks, and throw blankets with a western look.

If you put all of these tips to use, you'll have a Texas-themed room in no time.
