Ideas For Wall Hangings

  • Metal wall hangings can give a very stylish yet ethnic look to a room. They can enliven the soul and mind with beauty and can even be interpreted in various ways. A large metal sculpture is perfect for decorating a huge empty space, while a small metal piece is ideal for an area with a smaller space. Do not put a large metal piece in a small space because it will look out of place and very congested. Blend the metal art work with the wall size and also consider the color coordination of the wall and furniture. A large metal piece looks very attractive when placed on a wall with a cathedral ceiling.
  • Tapestry is a fun way to spice up your décor. It comes in many colors, styles, sizes and shapes. From ethnic India to Native American, they can spread their exotic charm to your cozy wall to give you a homely feeling. With the right choice, it can add fun and flair to any home’s decor. From interesting mirror works, colorful patchwork, hand painted tapestry to woven art pieces, there is a wide range of styles to choose from.
