Well alright, alright, alright - 2023 western and southwest home decor trends for coastal cowgirl and beach cowboy vibes

Well alright, alright, alright - 2023 western and southwest home decor trends for coastal cowgirl and beach cowboy vibes

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you would know by now that ‘western’ has made a comeback to fashion and now interior decor trends, and has been on the comeback since the beginning of 2022.

Harpers Bazaar and vogue have both written articles about western style recently, noting that western themes are timeless and classic - something which we agree with completely. 

Of course, we then went looking around for cute western themed homes - BUT if we can be frank, it was slim-pickin’s! We’ve found that 2023 western trends are more ‘Beach cowboy’ and ‘Coastal Cowgirl’ vibes and honestly, it’s amazing. The western influence is more subtle, and it combines themes of bohemian beach decor and minimalist elements creating such a nice, balanced, art-rust (artsy and rustic) mood in the home. 

In fact, it reminds us of the Spell Byron Bay owners home that was featured in Elle Magazine in 2019! Isabella Pennefather, Spell’s owner, had her decor seriously down-pat even four years ago. The article says her decor was “largely inspired by a trip to America's southwest region with high ceilings, barn doors and large reclaimed timber beams, set against blanched walls and curved render”. Looking through the photos, the subtle touches of southwest patterned rugs, lots of wood and exposed beams, and nods to the western lifestyle like cowboy boots and bull horns, all just make for such a balanced and effortlessly curated space. But even so, even the most recent collections from Spell capture that western essence, with desert themes, tasseled fringes and leather boots!

So, we came up with a design board that we think captures the 2022/2023 western trend. Coastal cowgirl/beach cowboy seems just that little bit more creative, fun and relaxed instead of solely rustic, comfy vibes of traditional south/western style. 

What do you think of the 2023 western & southwest vibes? Is the coastal cowgirl style for you?
