Texas Home Decor: Easy Ways to Incorporate a Texas Theme in Your DFW Home

Achieving a Texas theme can be as simple or minimal as you like. With just a few rustic elements that bring in shapes and colors that relate to Texas and its history, you can easily add Texas flair to your Metroplex home.

Incorporating Texas home decor into your house or apartment is easier than one might think. You can tailor pieces that represent Texas to your unique tastes. From rustic elements to artwork that displays native flora or sweeping sunrises, Lone Star State–themed Texas home decor doesn’t have to break your budget or require arduous renovations. Here are some easy tips for inspiration.

Use Texas-Inspired Shapes and Colors

When one thinks of Texas, two iconic shapes come to mind: the outline of the state and the star that adorns the Texas flag.

  • The outline of the state is easily recognizable, and easy to work into your interior design. Consider framing antique maps of Texas and hanging them in your home. A Texas-shaped piece of metal or wood makes for a great addition to your fireplace mantel.
  • The Texas star is also quite popular. Marked by a five-point star (often enclosed by a circle), this shape is highly recognizable in Texas home decor. Many rustic furniture stores in DFW sell Texas stars made from stained wood and rustic-looking metals. Some are even suitable for hanging outdoors on porches and patios. Iron Designs and Signs of Weatherford (a town outside Fort Worth) offers numerous variations of the Texas Star in a number of finishes and colors.

Regarding Texas-inspired colors, you have abundant options. You can incorporate the colors of the state flag (red, white, and blue) or the colors of native flora like bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes. Rich blues and vibrant hues of red and orange can add pops of color as throw pillows or accent walls. If you don’t want to commit to painting a room, you can always hang artistic photos of bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes or even place arrangements of these silk flowers on tables and mantels.

Paying Homage to DFW’s Cowboy Culture

Fort Worth, along with the rest of the state, has a rich history when it comes to the cattle industry. Consider visiting the Fort Worth Stockyards for inspiration on Texas’ long-standing cowboy culture. If you want to pay tribute to the cattle industry, placing cowhide-patterned rugs or pillows throughout your living room or bedroom is easy and affordable. Hanging wooden and metal silhouettes of longhorns (or real longhorns) is another popular way to incorporate Texas’ rich history into your house or apartment. Rustic Furniture Depot offers large horns for sale, among many other Western and Texas-related items. If cowhides or horns don’t appeal to you, leather furniture and pillows are another popular option for adding cattle-themed texture to a space.

Achieving a Texas theme can be as simple or minimal as you like. With just a few rustic elements that bring in shapes and colors that relate to Texas and its history, you can easily add Texas flair to your Metroplex home.
