Barbwire has long stood as a symbol of strength and toughness in the West. Even those who live in the biggest cities recognize the material for its representation as a barrier for animals and a familiar tool that was used in the Westward expansion. While barbwire has been around for decades, it continues to be a familiar sight on farms, ranches, and other types of animal facilities today. The symbolism and simplicity of barbwire makes it the ideal theme for use in western bedding.
When decorating any room of your home in a western theme, your goal should be to implement as many recognizable features as possible. For example, textured walls and ceilings set the tone for traditional western style decor. Furniture, tables, flooring, and decorative wooden items used to decorate the bedroom should be made from distressed wood. Traditional Western styling also includes leather and geometric patterns to create a comprehensive appeal to the room.
Many of the features highlighted in tips for rustic or western decor include architectural designs such as wood beams or tile floors. For homes in which these features are not a part of the structure, there are less extensive ways of giving your bedroom a more authentic design. For one, use western style rugs that coordinate with your rustic bedding. This can either be a design that specifically showcases your barbwire theme, or a compatible pattern or design that coordinates with your bedding.
Since the bed is the central piece of furniture in the room, a rustic or log style bed is ideal. Natural and distressed wood is a part of the western appeal, and nothing goes more naturally with your barbwire bedding than bedroom furniture made especially for that purpose.
One of the beautiful things about barbwire bedding is that it doesn’t have to stand alone as your western theme. It makes a wonderful accent to the variety of designs and patterns that are a part of the western bedding collection. Whether you choose throw pillows with a moose and bear for decor, or stick with the cowboy-inspired theme, barbwire works as an accent piece to anything western. It sets the scene and complements every other staple or accessory that you want to use.
The Smallest Details
Achieving the decorator-style look you want in your western bedroom requires you to pay attention to the smallest details. The cover plate for your light switch, the wallpaper border around the middle of the walls, the lights, and the accessories on your shelves: all play a role in the authenticity of your barbwire-themed bedroom. Omit those details that you want, to accommodate your personal taste, and replace them with the authentic western decor that will have an atmosphere of the genuine American West.
Decorating with barbwire bedding is also easy as far as choosing the right colors. The bed sets include the comforter, shams, and bedskirt in colors and patterns that coordinate well with each other and with the other decorative items you will find in the western decor collection. The barbwire sheet sets will work with any bedding set you choose. Just pick the color that you prefer and create the ideal barbwire theme for your bedroom.
