In a traditionally built house, the walls will most often be square, and symmetrical, with doors and windows placed at geometrically straight locations, in line with one another. More contemporary floor plans will usually call for an open space design, in which there are only a few walls, and most of the space flows naturally into itself.
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.
With a contemporary or modern space, you want to stick with things that are sleek and free from intricate details. A single large mirror or abstract pieces that are square, round or triangular in shape work well with this type of decor. For those who love a warm, inviting appeal, artwork can be a bit more detailed. Tapestries, prints, and framed artwork are more country themed, consisting of rich, warm colors such as rust, cream, blue, pumpkin and gold. Just be sure to carry through with the overall color of the room, so that your wall decor complements or contrasts with furnishings, floors and other accents.
