If you want to get a great feel of the American west, take a look at the slide shows below of some western landscapes. They will really get you in the right frame of mind for decorating your house using some artifacts or accessories from that region of the U.S.
In addition, because of the accompanying music, I was totally overcome with a sense of calm and peace while watching this video. This is the feeling you need to impart when people visit your own home.
Get lost in these landscapes and get inspired!
There is something very inspirational about the American west when I watch the video above. I can’t put my finger on it. Perhaps it’s feeling that all of these western landscapes were created by a higher power. Or perhaps it’s knowing that the United States was originally undeveloped and these scenes depict how many areas would look if it was still this way. Many parts still are, which makes it all the more important to cherish our open spaces.
If you should feel inspired to decorate your own home with a western theme, watch this video first and you just may get some ideas or inspirations that you didn’t know existed.
