Designing for the Western Lifestyle: An Introduction


The West has always been known for its individuality, rugged landscapes and pioneer spirit. From Cowboy or Pioneer Homestead to Refined Mountain or Rustic Contemporary, we will explore the common elements we have discovered while designing for the Western lifestyle and at the same time show how these elements can be combined to create completely different interiors.

Key elements in designing for the Western lifestyle include:

  • Creating a cozy, inviting environment where you can gather with family and friends
  • Bringing the outdoors in by using natural materials — metal, stone and wood for the interior finishes
  • Selecting a mix of furniture pieces that will stand the test of time
  • Allowing for each person’s vision of the Western lifestyle to find its expression

Beginning this week, we will be doing a blog series taking you through the ins and outs of five unique styles, all of which fit under the umbrella of Western design: Refined Mountain, Mountain Contemporary, Western Cowboy, Mountain Lodge and New Mexico Territorial. Come back and visit to see how each of these themes fits into interior design for the Western lifestyle. You can even follow the blog to have our updates sent right to your reader or email inbox!
