Last modified on March 30th, 2022 at 9:57 pm


If you’re considering buying a home at Georgetown’s Gardens at Verde Vista, you’re no doubt drawn to the Texas Hill Country style of decorating. We are here to help you find ways to furnish your Texas Hill Country Home. To find inspiration, you need to look no further than the natural beauty that surrounds you – rolling hills, majestic trees, beautiful lakes, and rugged limestone.

You may be wondering what defines the Texas Hill Country look. The truth is, it’s a combination of many factors: a wide-open feeling to your home’s living spaces, a bit of western flare, and an understated sophistication. If you’re looking for ideas on how to furnish your Texas Hill Country home, here are some décor ideas. This will help you give your new garden or villa home an authentic Texas Hill Country look and feel.

One of the things that make Hill Country décor so interesting is that it doesn’t play by the rules. Instead, it’s led by big ideas and themes, incorporating laid-back elegance with Texas sensibility. That opens up a world of possibilities as you choose the furnishings for your new home at Gardens at Verde Vista.

One of the big ideas you’ll find throughout Texas Hill Country homes is high ceilings. These lend a feeling of spaciousness no matter what the square footage of your home may be. Several of the floor plans offered at Gardens at Verde Vista feature volume or Cathedral ceilings, right on-trend with Hill Country style.


In addition to a western flare, the area’s climate will influence how you decorate your home. Weather in the spring and fall is beautiful and the seasons can be lengthy, extending the time families can spend outside. Every garden and villa home at Gardens at Verde Vista includes a signature gated courtyard entrance – again, right on trend with the indoor/outdoor living that exemplifies Texas Hill Country style. A popular trend is to use sliding or retracting doors to adjoin interior rooms with outdoor living areas, thus increasing entertaining space and bringing in the outdoors.

According to a noted Hill Country interior designer, the design and finish out of these outdoor spaces are approached in a similar fashion to interior rooms. These outdoor spaces, such as your courtyard, often feature upholstered furniture such as sectionals, outdoor rugs, and forgiving materials on dining tables such as Brazilian ipe wood, concrete, and teak. Outdoor spaces often have conveniences that include heaters, kitchens, bars, and fireplaces.

Certain finishes tend to be favorites among Hill Country homeowners, such as accents made of weathered and reclaimed wood. The use of mixed-metallic finishes is another popular trend. For example, combinations of copper mixed with gold or antique brass with silver used in plumbing and light fixtures, accessories, and door hardware.

Indoor/outdoor fabrics and natural fabrics such as linens or cotton are also popular choices. They’re easier to care for and can more easily hold up when grandchildren are visiting.

A few choices for how to furnish your Texas Hill Country home include:

  • Leather. Plush, oversized leather couches and chairs are a classic and comfortable choice for your home. Dark, rich colors add a rustic flair to any room, complementing traditional Hill Country architectural design.
  • Rustic Wood. In addition to using rustic wood as an accent, you may want to consider coffee tables and dining room tables made of rustic wood to add the perfect Hill Country touch to your home. With a natural look and feel, these statement pieces aren’t only durable, but beautiful, too.
  • Wrought Iron. Mixing wrought iron accent pieces with dark wood and leather can transform any room into a Hill Country haven. Wrought iron chandeliers, sconces or artwork add character to new homes in Georgetown, TX.
  • Tapestry. Tapestry may not be a choice that immediately comes to mind when you think of Texas Hill Country home interiors. It’s actually very popular. It’s a simple way to add texture and depth to your new home. From side chairs to wall hangings, a tapestry is an elegant way to tie your decor together.
