Amazing job! Details on the sectional would be appreciated? Thx! - Please provide the brand of sofa & are you happy with the quality? - looks like exactly what I have been hoping to find. This room looks like the kind of space people gravitate too - very inviting space :)

Sorry, it's an old floor model from West Elm.....we love it, but they don't make the same style anymore. They may have something similar though.

Thank You. I live in India. We dont have Home Depot here. So would asking for just Fawn suffice?

LOL! I didn't realize there were places on Earth without HomeDepot.....I suppose it is kind of a mocha coffee color...deep khaki, like a pair of work pants

The many details - I adore the "conscious clutter" of this space! It must be an art. Everytime I attempt it, either the OCD gets the best of me or everything just looks messy! Do you have any tips on how to achieve this overall effect?

Our Edward Curtis Indian is printed on a scrim, I stretched him over a canvas covered frame. We got him at Ikea about 5 years ago. Wish I had bought a dozen, I could have sold them all by now.

What a great space!!! Love the green pendants and open stairs! It's such a warm inviting space. If I lived there I would cover it in river rocks..... You could always paint black to make it more contemporary.... Do you have a ceiling light directly on it? That can make a difference too.

I've got a ceiling fan with lights that I can train directly on it. I like the river-rock idea, but don't know if other half will go for it. I was thinking of maybe darkening it with a deep gray and then painting stairs in a lighter hue? I'm so afraid of paint. Weren't you terrified to paint your fireplace, or did you just cover over someone's previously painted bad idea?

Thank you, We just love our place too....The red "pops" weren't planned, they just happened slowly. .All the walls are Martha Stewart "Fawn"...they would have been a Ralph Lauren color, but sadly RL paint wasn't available in Dallas at the time .....

Thanks James. Unfortunately our Home Depot doesn't carry Ralph anymore either! But they will mix it in Behr or Martha. I still love Ralph colours myself. The Sherwin Williams we have can colour match really well-You may want to try a Sherwin Williams near you or another paint store that can match really well. I have kept all of the paint chips from Ralph-he really does have great colours. I have put you in my favourites so I look forward to what you guys will do next. When I first saw what you have done with your place I thought," That is some really great Cowboy Chic". And I mean that! It's like Southwest really updated. Inspires me to want to change some things in my place. I love the leather chair you guys bought-looks really great in the space. So good luck with the house!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The stuff in this Americana living room shares a theme and a scale (big). There are a lot of things in here, but every one of them was put there intentionally.
Summer Baltzer added this to 8 Ways to Lasso Lone Star State Style
1. A rustic color scheme. A down-to-earth, rustic color palette defines this Texan interior. Dusty reds, whites and blues (like on the Texas and American flags) complement warm wall colors. Get this look: Light base colors work best in the hot Texas climate, so stick to lighter shades on your walls and use bolder colors for fun punches in fabric, artwork, furniture and accessories.
