Lighting

  • wrought iron lamps
  • wrought iron candle sconces on the walls
  • fixtures feature simple forms and lines with terracotta finishes
  • use of animal or regional motifs
  • lighting options should complement the overall color scheme

Hints on choosing lighting:

  • use dim lighting (and a bold color scheme) to bring out dark reds or browns
  • use plenty of natural lighting to bring out beige and light colors
  • pottery makes excellent lamp stands
  • patterns with bold colors will accentuate the Southwest theme
  • cowboy and Old West lamps are an acceptable lighting alternative
