What is Your Home Decor Theme?

Southwestern Theme @ Mi' Casa (My House)

I Love anything Indian and Southwestern, the more "Rustic" the Better!...
The only place in My House, that's NOT Southwest...The Garage!!!

What Decor Theme is your House?

Mine is different in the living room than the kitchen. Those are the only 2 rooms that have a theme. My bedroom is next.

Living room is Southwest and Wildlife.
Kitchen is Lighthouses.

We've run out of room to put stuff and I keep finding more that I want. I'm addicted to a website that everything there is $14.99. The dream catchers were $14.99 for the pair.

Our theme for the whole house is BORING! With a little country added to the kitchen.

Light brown walls and carpets in most of the rooms. The entry way, guestbath, main hallway, kitchen and kitchen nook are oak hardwoods.

The big lights over the kitchen table, dinningroom table and in the entry way are black iron with white frosted globes. Well, they are not globes.. more like bell shaped glass. The dinning room has white chair rails and the lower parts of the walls in there have white wanescoating.

All the windows have the white molding also.

It's a big beautiful house but... after living here for three years we've yet to decorate in any way. Three pictures are hung and we put white wood blinds in two of the bedrooms and UGLY curtains in the master and the other bedroom. BORING!!!!!!! Our Bedroom has a very nice cherry set in it and the dinning room has Paul's piano and our oak dinning set in it... the rest of the furniture is old and falling apart and really needs to be replaced.
And we'll do it all some day but we seem to spend all our money on more important things. It's a little embarrassing once in awhile when we have people over but... for the most part it's home. And we love it!

Living room is Hawaiian-tropical. Rattan living room set with bamboo and palm accent pieces with a smattering of dog toys here and there. I will not show a pic because it's a mess right now.

Bedroom is oriental- Red and black-

Here is Mama=San and Papa-San-

Here is DH's Samurai sword.(no snickering,lol.)-

Bathroom is fern decor-

Kitchen is fishes. This is one wall-

So is my humble grass shack.

Wasabi! I love that headboard and bedspread!!

Our's is somewhere between Salvation Army and Goodwill.

We have a chair that should have been tossed out in 1981 (actually it was, that's how we got it).
