Western decor doesn’t have to complicated, simple pieces can make a big impact.
Do you love western home decor but often find yourself struggling trying to put a finished room together? Decorating can be a long process, especially if the pieces your really want are out of budget or require time to save up for. Start simple and work your way up to larger pieces, here are five simple ways to add western style to your home.
All photos have been taken at Triple Creek Ranch during my visit last month. Read about My Montana Moments and Triple Creek Ranch Snap Shots in previous posts on the blog. To learn more about Triple Creek Ranch, visit their website >
1. Hang non-traditional items on the wall
Old saddles, chaps, and pieces of tack make wonderful statement pieces. You can find these items at second hand shops or hopefully in your barn or tucked away in a closet. The old saddle (above) was hanging in the Rider’s Roost and immediately caught my eye.

2. Repurpose old items into something new
This horseshoe chair is impressive! If you know a good welder or farrier who can make stuff, now is the time to start collecting horse shoes. Or start looking on Etsy and local places to find someone who sells horseshoe furniture.

3. Display bits on the wall
Every horse person has a box of bits they are no longer using but refuse to part with. Turn these bits into art and hang them on the wall, you can always take them down later if you need to use them ; )

4. Add artwork to your walls
No room is complete without a painting or a few prints.

5. Don’t forget the exterior of your home
A horse head door knocker like this or a simple statue outside can set the tone for the interior of your space.
