Style Guide: Texas Chic
There's nothing like living in the Lone Star State. From the sweet tea to our own brand of country music to our beautiful landscapes, Texas has a lot to offer. And if you're a true-blue Texan, introducing some rustic elements into your home decor is almost a necessity!
Here's what you need to know:
Reclaimed wood is on trend right now, thanks in part to Chip and Joanna Gaines' shiplap obsession. Using unfinished, worn, reclaimed wood can keep spaces from becoming too dark. Cherries and mahoganies are out and lighter woods are in.
Wildlife is a big part of the Texas landscape. You don't have to be into hunting to incorporate animal elements into decor. While a cow hide throw pillow or antler chandelier can look great, you can also use art and sculpture to honor the animals that Texas is known for.
Add A Little Bling
What's Texas without a little sparkle? Don't shy away from sparkle! From beltbuckles to rhinestones, use these elements to create texture and dimension. A little bit of glitz goes a long way to help bring some contrast to your natural elements and animal-inspired pieces.
Bring the Outside In
Dried flowers, live herbs in the kitchen windowsill - natural elements are key to creating Texas Chic! These pieces will give your rooms life. If you have a green thumb, use it! If you don't, you can use floral or greenery-inspired decor pieces to give an earthy and natural feel to your home.
Support Local Artists
The best way to show off some Texas flavor in your home is by purchasing a piece by a Texas artist. You can purchase a simple print, decor elements, or even original paintings. Whatever you choose, you'll be adding some Texas-inspired flair and helping your homegrown artists at the same time.
