One of our favorite aspects of the South is its undeniable charm and warmth. This vibe can be found effortlessly emanating from sprawling front porches and the beauty of a cool summer night. Hill Country style, which originated in Texas, embraces the rustic nature of the landscape while still incorporating a contemporary, sophisticated feel of the modern ages.
To properly outfit a Texas home, consider integrating strong, decorative accents to fully highlight the unpolished beauty of an austere home. The look can be both traditional and century-appropriate at the same time, and the overall feel should be cozy and relaxed. Natural light is a must in a Hill Country home, to organically light up your space and add character to the interior design.
Sturdy stone and wood are finite Texas staples not to be overlooked, as architecture is an important aspect of this type of style. With European, Hispanic and Native American influences, Texas provides the ideal landscape to create an idyllic home. At Gabby, our designers’ goal is to capture the essence of a style near and dear to us. Take a look at some of our pieces we think would perfectly compliment a Texas Hill Country style home.
An ideal coffee table for a Hill Country home, our French-inspired Acanto Coffee Table compliments natural wood interiors with a rustic framework. The refined table adds a sense of grace to a space while still embracing the picturesque beauty of the surrounding landscape.
To spruce up an entryway, consider a unique seating piece like our Dorris Bench. With a natural oak seat and antique-finished black interlocking half-moon curves, this bench can add a homespun touch to any living space.
Our designers created the Kennedy Dining Chair with a comfortable dining experience in mind. While the piece features a transitional style, the natural rattan and linen seat cushion give it a casual sophistication that lends well to Hill Country homes.
The Ava Mirror makes a grand statement with its antique shape evocative of architectural plaques. The gorgeous wood frame features four cast resin rosettes in an antique gold finish on each corner. The popular mirror brings grandeur to any space with its large size and three finishes.
As we discussed earlier, lighting is very important in Hill Country homes. Our glamorous Catalina Pendant Light was created with a classic drum shade and an antique gold geometric pattern on its iron frame. Hang this eclectic pendant in the foyer, or allow it to light up a dining room alongside the warm woods commonly found in Hill Country homes.
