Southwestern Decor Inspiration

                                              Went to a friends new home, it was so personal

  She adores her southwestern style and has collected everything over many   years and much travel

                                     Her collection of Navajo rugs is enviable

                                colorful pillows collected in Las Cruces, New Mexico
                                                 more pillows and rugs as runners & toppers
                  handmade box with carving and more  patterned baskets

wish this was a close up, the owner made this art, very colorful & personal

great color and scalloped detail which echos the scallop in the fireplace wall. slate tile is a great neutral foil for all the owners colorful possesions

metal clock in  beautiful copper & metal, check out the ceiling detail, echos the cabinets which are throughout the home

                      view of interior Santa fe style pine pole and art from a favorite artist

   close up the carved wood crosses, more art, beer pots with the one on the right being over 100 years old, and the words Harmony describe the feeling of this home perfectly

This home gives the guest a soothing tranquil experince upon crossing the threshold. I immediately felt like I was somewhere special. There is so much attention to detail and it  heightens the visual appeal of all the elements. The best part is that it is a personal, traveled story of  a meaningful  life. I truly enjoyed it. The girl time together wasn't bad either! Thanks Sue.
