If you can’t get to nature, let nature come to you. This is a wonderful picture that brings a real splash of color and life to even the dullest or plainest of rooms. It’s a simple image that says so much and creates the feeling that you are among the trees, experiencing nature at its best. There is a nice contrast between the colors of the leaves and the shadows behind, making it look even more lifelike. The beautiful shades of green are easy to accentuate with the right accessories. It’s a nice picture to brighten up an office setting or a hallway, somewhere that needs that extra something to perk it up a bit. Hang it as one complete picture or break it into sections and create little spots of color around a room. This would make the perfect gift for someone who is creating a spring or summer theme in a room
Rather than buying a picture to put on your wall, why not create your own wall full of pictures like the one in this room. This bedroom features an entire wall of picture that represent the life of the owner of the room. Above the bed there is also a picture of Marylin Monroe. I like the idea of taking your own pictures and making a mural. It brings a sense of creativity into the room. The rest of the room is decorated with different colors and patterns such as mint and gold.
For art that uses an advanced printing process (making it almost indistinguishable from the original piece), browse a wide selection of giclee prints. Choose gallery-wrapped canvas art prints if you prefer the canvas to be pulled all the way around the stretcher and secured in the back. Once you’ve decided on the look you want, watch this video for techniques on the best way to properly hang your artwork.
Once you have an idea of a general spot, frame out the area with painter’s tape to visualize the spot. Stand back a few feet and see if you like where it sits on the wall. Get artsy with this; maybe you want to hang your wall art slightly off center because there’s a plant in the corner or a chair that will block some of it. Create a vignette, or setting, like the image above, where the art is part of the grouping and slightly off center.
Metal wall art is elegant and classy, and it's a method of decorating your home that makes your decorations really stand out. It's an eye-catching accent to any room of any style. Go from classic and antique to postmodern abstract, and create a design theme that perfectly communicates your sense of aesthetics and style to visitors in your home. Choose metal pieces to add depth and texture to a room since most stand out from the wall to create a 3-D feel.
