Become A Master of Americana Style: 3 Easy Tips
Americana mixes yesterday's influences with today's style. Full of understated elegance, it's a celebration of home and history. The best part about Americana is that it pairs well with other decors, making it a timeless decorating choice. Here are 3 easy tips to help you master Americana style for your home.
Go with rustic finishes.
The Americana Chandelier from our Raleigh collection features a matte bronze finish and dark stained wood, making this light fixture rustic while still being elegant. The eight exposed bulbs give this fixture a Colonial feel. The Americana Chandelier is also available in a smaller, five bulb size so you can select the right size for your space.
Use red and blue--in different hues.
Red and blue are staples in Americana decor but think way behind primary colors. Mix and match different shades: barn red with navy blue, or cherry red with sky blue. And don't shy away from patterns, whether it's a classic plaid or houndstooth, or modern stripes and graphics. Throw pillows and lampshades are easy to swap out each season, or even when you're just in the mood for a change.
Tie it all together with a light fixture.
There is overlap in Americana and Modern Farmhouse decor, and our Industrial Chandelier is the best of both worlds, with its clean lines and brushed nickel finish. A part of our Sonoma collection, it's reminiscent of the rural past while being thoroughly modern. This chandelier features 3 lights and will tie together your entire room, so you don't have to choose between one style.
Wherever you live, decorating with Americana style has never been easier.
