Southwestern Furniture: Paintings, Blankets, Pillows, Coffee Tables, Area Rugs
I usually never make a big deal over décor unless it hits me in the face. For example, I’m from a small Texas town called Corsicana. We don’t have skyscraper buildings or fancy 5-star hotels. I’ve been in this small town ever since I was a toddler. (I’m not originally from Corsicana). I’m used to small motels/hotels, fast-food restaurants, back roads, small stores, and Wal Mart. Texas has its big cities, like Dallas and Houston. So pretty much, I’ve had a little taste of what it’s like in those bigger cities.
Summer 2015 was the first time I’ve physically left the mainland U.S. It was when I went to Hawaii for a church conference. As soon as I landed in Hawaii, their airport was already a different kind of airport that I was used to. This airport had a tropical kind of touch to it. It had flowers, small shrubs, and a few palm trees all around the outside. They had some sort of balcony inside. That was just the airport.
When I got to the house that I was staying at, it was in the middle of all these palm trees. The name of the place was Deep Hawaii. I didn’t really see where I was at because it was night time when I got there. It looked like we were going through a jungle to the house. When I woke up the next day, all I did that morning was go around the house taking pictures. Inside and outside. The house didn’t have air conditioning, we would open the windows and the breeze from the outside would flow in. The house was surrounded by palm trees. They had like lawn chairs in the front yard. I guess if nobody really kept up with that place (maintaining it), it would probably just be a bunch of tall grass and jungle.
Southwestern Style Is A Tricky Art
Where do you typically work at? For some people, it’s at their office or business where they will spend around 8 hours a day working at a desk or with whatever tools they work with. There will typically be little time for breaks and relaxation, yet for those who have been able to personalize their workstation, they could noticeably find themselves being in a more comfortable environment. Having an environment where you feel at ease it vital when it comes to work effort. When you work you want to have a suitable environment where you feel almost at home and can work with a clear head. So why not use décor to increase your own moral? Something as simple as a potted plant or a poster can greatly increase your productivity. Why let your work suffer just because you don’t feel as though you’re in a welcoming environment when you could easily just add some color to your work?
There has been research done that says that people work twice as hard when they are in a happy mindset. If you are a minimalist, like myself, then that doesn’t mean you don’t need any Southwestern decorations around you. Décor gives you the freedom to create and change your living arrangements so that you can be at ease no matter where you are. Getting away from a horrid mentality and introducing yourself to an almost home like one will help in your daily life since you no longer view work as an away from home experience.
People come with different tastes, so each person’s view on particular Southwestern décor will vary, especially when you’re filling you home with area rugs from SouthwesternRugsDepot. Don’t let peer views stop you from expressing yourself though since there is guaranteed proof that somewhere in anyone who would judge you there is something that they secretly don’t want anyone to notice. Take your own thoughts and be creative with your work. Have fun when you’re working or studying so life can just be slightly easier.
