When you visit homes in Arizona or New Mexico, Southwestern is a popular style throughout the home. Even if you don’t live in the heat of the Southwest, you can still bring the Southwest to your living room.

Out of the 916,645, living rooms and 18 styles analyzed, .28 percent (or 2,597) have a Southwestern design.

Characteristics of Southwestern Design

Traditionally, Southwestern design consists of Adobe (similar to stucco) on the walls, terracotta tiles on the floor, and Native American inspired textiles and artwork. Flat roofs, open floor plans, and even an outdoor living room are quite common in the Southwestern region.

While many of these traditional features aren’t the best options for homes in colder regions of the U.S., you can incorporate many of them into your living room design, regardless of where you live.

As you browse our Southwestern Gallery, you will notice that many of the living rooms have wide-open floor plans, similar to the others styles like the Beach, but Southwestern design is a unique style all its own.

Rich Colors

Unless you live in the Southwest, you’re less likely to see a living room (or home) with a traditional Southwest design. Today, as living rooms become a little more modern, simplistic, and brighter, many homeowners are stepping away from darker colors.

Southwestern style consists of white, tan, and other light-colored walls. Not only does a bright color keep a room cooler in the Southwestern heat but it helps to showcase beautiful artwork or a woven rug.

Even though neutral colors are rarely described as “rich,” terracotta and other warm tones add richness and warmth to a living room with white walls. While traditional terracotta tiles may not be practical for your living room, you can add area rugs or accent pieces in those rich, brown color.

Simple Furniture

Furniture in a Southwestern style living room should be practical, functional, and simple. If you want your living room to be a gathering place, sectional couches or large chairs for lounging can be inviting.

Even if your living room has an open floor plan with tall ceilings, keeping your seating close together can create a quiet and comfortable place for one or a small party.

Keeping your furniture simple can also help draw attention to the artwork on the walls or even a brightly colored woven blanket or pillow on the couch.
