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.
