Home Decor – Guide to Wall Art

You may have the perfect furniture throughout your home, but still feel like there is something missing. It’s probably the walls. Look at your walls. What’s on them? If your answer is paint and a decorative border you are ignoring a major space in your home that could have a much more personal touch.

Wall art gives that personal touch. There are a variety of wall art options that you can choose from to show off a little style in every room of your home:

Paintings

If you are an art-lover at heart, you may want to bring one of your favorite paintings home from the gallery next time you are out and put it in your home. A painting is a way to get a very personal glimpse inside the owner of the home, as all pieces of art speak to the people who purchase them.

Tapestries

If you would like to add some art, but with a soft touch, to a room in your home, go no further than wall tapestries. While sometimes paintings and other wall art pieces are just a little too cold or stiff for a room, such as a dressing room or bedroom, tapestries are rich beautiful images that still retain a soft and supple feeling.

Photos

There are a variety of photos that can be put on a wall in your home. It could be you choose family photos to show off those you love and care for. Perhaps you prefer photos of the places you have been to recall your fun world travels.

The other option is to choose photos based on their artistic style. Photographers are capturing images of nearly every aspect of life and once framed on your wall these images can become the masterpiece that gets everyone talking.

Sculpture

While most people think sculptures belong on a table, there are plenty of other places you can put sculptures in your home. Some sculptures are made to be hung from a wall instead of set on a tabletop. Even your tabletop sculptures can have a place on your walls. There are plenty of individual wall shelves you can attach to the wall. There are even clear ones to make it seem as if your sculpture is floating on air.

Furniture pieces

Have too many books for your bookshelf? What about wanting a little corner nook to pretend you have escaped the rest of the world. This is what special wall-mounted furniture pieces can offer. From small bookshelves to tabletops that come out of the wall, there are plenty of artistically crafted furniture pieces that can fit the bill.

No matter what your home decorative theme and style, you can always add a few touches to really complete the look. Often these finishing touches come in the form of wall art pieces that add to the room’s look as a whole as well as adding a bit of your personal creative taste at the same time.
