Time to change up your décor? Since you live in Colorado, paying homage to the state in your decorating isn’t a bad idea. You don’t have to go totally mountain rustic, but use your imagination in how to weave in bits and pieces of the beauty and history of the state.
If you want to change up room colors, use the beautiful mountains for ideas
Beautiful blue skies, slate grey of the high mountains, cool browns of the rich earth and evergreen trees make for amazing inspiration. Just paint alone can give you a great Colorado feel. Calm blue walls, with touches of deep green and brown will give you a mountain feel. The greys and even burgundy streaks of slate can make a room special. Use your imagination and take your cue from your surroundings.
Want more Colorado touches?
Add touches of wood. Beautiful hardwood floors, exposed ceiling beams or wood mantle will make the home feel more rustic. If you have a fireplace that is brick, cover it with slate or stone. You can go as rustic as you want from just a bit here and there to total cabin feel.
Don’t forget the history of Colorado in your décor!
The railroad was huge. Native American tribes and cowboys make the list. Search at estate sales, antique shops or thrift stores to find that perfect piece to tie in Colorado history in your home.
Do some research in your local library to see if there is something special or specific to your town and see how you can make that part of your decorating plan.
