The early American decor is appropriate for both modern and historic structure of home. So, although it carries a more natural and classic look, it doesn’t mean that this is good only for traditional home design. This style refers to American decor before the colonial period of the late 18th century and for some people it may be a bit complicated to realize this style in their homes. Here are some tips for you to spread your home with the early American look.
Early American decor is light. So, make the walls in light hue such as white or a pastel shade of blue or yellow to obtain a historic look. Use a paint technique when painting to add a bit of texture to the style like color washing. Get the natural look of early American by using wood in your home. You can use it everywhere in your home start from the flooring to the walls. Install wide-plank hardwood flooring in a warmer color and add wainscoting to your walls. Choose a few heavy, durable wood pieces in earthy color like mustard yellow to give a finish look in the decor. If you want to add a little detail on your walls, try stenciling your walls. You can create some designs of leaves, birds and other natural elements on your walls or create a border around the top of a wall or above a chair rail. Although you think that you have already used wood for the flooring, you still need to complete it with a floor cloth to create a truly historic feel. This is a piece of thick cloth that is placed on the floor space. It acts as rugs during the early American period. Typically, this is featured with painted designs. The more intricate the design, the more expensive it is.
Now you can make a great early American decor in your home giving you the feeling as if you are living in that period.
