The newest entry into the world of decorative wall decor used by the masses is metal wall art. Traditionally made of iron or other heavy metal, it's easy to find unique pieces that perhaps weren't originally used in this capacity in an antique or thrift store. Going to places such as that and looking at items with a different set of eyes makes it possible to turn any metal item from the past into decorative wall decor. From street signs to horseshoes, people are taking things from long ago and using them to create an interesting display on their walls. It's also a less expensive way to decorate.
One of the best and easiest way is to add texture to the wall. There are so many wallpapers that have texture, and it is a simple task to paper the wall or walls with a wallpaper that has a raised design, or is made to look like bamboo or linen. Of course, this can be brought to an extreme, and there have been avant garde decorators who adhered straw or paper bags to a wall to achieve texture, but this is not a solution that is for everyone.
One very popular type of modern decor is called minimalist decor. In this decorating style less is more. The idea is to keep furnishings and accents to a minimum. Generally, all the pieces in the room will have their space and function and nothing more is added. If you have ever seen pictures of modern homes where there is a small smattering of furniture in a large room and a lot of open space left, this is a great example of minimalism.
