From vintage to contemporary, it's easy to find ways to make any room special with wall art. Creating a motif with unexpected items can be a conversation piece in any room. It's fun to come up with new uses for old items or use new items in unconventional ways. Searching around in thrift stores and other fun places, you never know what you might find to adorn your walls with. Whatever your particular taste, you can personalize your space with decorative wall decor.
A large decorative mirror or a bold painting with vibrant colors is often chosen to be the focal point in a room. In this instance, the piece should be hung over a fireplace, or on a wall facing the entrance for maximum effect. Large wall mirrors can create space in a small room and can be used to great effect when hung opposite a window. They can also provide an interesting optical illusion when used along a narrow hallway.
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.
