Prairie Style Decorating

The prairie style decoration comes from Frank Lloyd Wright and his   minimalist architecture.  The prairie   style emphasized built-in shelves, closets, and closets in single-story   buildings that followed the long, low horizon of the prairie.  Such houses usually centered around a   central area with a fireplace and then branched out into wings to house   bedrooms or utility rooms.

One Pinterest blogger described it as not frizzled, not strict,   but just right.  The settlers of the   Western Movement could only bring goods that could be packed on the back of a   mule or loaded into a Conestoga wagon.    The real prairie houses were often built of grass, or even bales of   straw, or wood pulled from nearby states that were more blessed with   trees.  The result was a replacement   architecture.

Interior decoration often focused on a valuable piece or two   brought “from the east” and furniture that residents could make   from local materials.  Wright’s   architecture benefited from this sparse decor, which revolved around a good   piece or two.  As a result, the prairie   style is somewhat eclectic.

You may find a concrete Greek urn on a handmade table with a   distressed paint job – a look that sometimes fades into shabby chic.  The prairie style is less cluttered,   however.  It’s best to use a special   piece or two as a focal point without getting too fussy about how it looks.  The original homes were more concerned with   the work that needed to be done, or maybe even preserving the heirloom pieces   that made it to their new world.

Prairie Style Decorating will therefore consider function.  But functional does not rule out   beautiful.  Even ordinary wood like   pine or fir can be made beautiful by staining, artful distress, or even the   layered paint that is so popular in shabby chic decorating.  The decorative objects are arranged in such   a way that they underline the clear lines of the low, horizontal   buildings.  You could almost say that   any type of decor is part of the prairie style – but maybe not entirely.  It has a more open, lovable feel to it than   shabby chic, not as fussy as Victorian or as classic as Greek.  It has an open, welcoming feel to it.  The decor is not that different from the   country or cottage and can sometimes take on a southwestern aspect.  The key to having some good pieces that are   well presented.
