Many kids love to fantasize about the western life and what their days would have been like when living in the Old West. Thanks to a wide variety of rustic western bedding, living out the western fantasy isn’t just for the little cowboy any more. Beautifully detailed western bedding that is as comfortable as it is visually appealing is the ideal start for creating a western themed room. There are designs for the smallest cowgirl and the roughest, toughest cowboy, alike.
Setting the Theme
When decorating your bedroom with a cowboy theme, the bed will be the central focus of the room. The style of bedding you choose will be the key feature that you use to decorate the rest of the room. Even if the room wasn’t crafted with the same types of materials that you might expect to see in a traditional western bedroom, there are techniques you can use to give the room the authentic touch that you have in mind.
The more coverage you add to your walls, the more you can add to your rustic cowboy theme. One option is to paint walls in coordinating colors to match your western bedding and add the appropriate western themed wall art. You can also use wallpaper borders and murals to add real western scenes or symbols that expand on the design of your bedding.
Choosing Your Accessories
Every accessory you choose for the bedroom will contribute to the authenticity of the cowboy theme. A log bench at the foot of the bed, or a western style throw pillow in the hickory rocking chair in the corner will have a tremendous impact on the appeal of your design. Not only do the little touches matter, but the number of touches you add will combine to have a greater impact than simply adding a few details with a common theme. Coordinate your window covers to your rustic western bedding and add a couple of carefully chosen throw rugs to make the decor look unified.
Additional Western Themed Details that Can Combine for Greater Impact:
- Switchplate and outlet covers
- Fan pulls
- Shelf brackets
- Throws and pillows
When accentuating the bedroom, there are also some things that should be omitted. Even a single significant item that belongs to a different era can take away from your decorating efforts. Lava lamps and strobe lights are some obvious no-no’s for a cowboy themed room. There are also many others that have a modern look which would belong in a different setting.
You may also want to find some authentic western tack to display in the room. An old saddle, printed feed sacks, and spurs are some examples of items that will add real-life western appeal. You could also look for worn cowboy boots to place on a shelf, or a cowboy hat to throw onto the bed post. Once you choose the right western bedding to set the tone of the bedroom, there are lots of ways to add to the theme to create a luxuriously rustic bedroom that cowgirls or cowboys of any age will enjoy.
