Wood Wall Art
Get inspired with wood wall art! Whether you are looking to decorate a new home or simply want to add a pop of energy to a tired space, these simple wood wall art tips will help to refresh any room with a bold definition, refining texture and timeless, rustic-chic style.
How to Style Wood Wall Art
Are your walls feeling a little ho-hum? Fear not! With some strategic placement and accessorizing, wood wall art can freshen up even the dullest of corners with a unique, rustic-elegant appeal.
How to Place Wood Wall Art Collages
Before you start choosing and hanging your wood wall art willy-nilly, measure your wall space. Knowing the exact dimensions of the area where you plan to accessorize will help you determine which – and how many – pieces will work best.
Once you have a general idea of the size and shape of the piece – or pieces – you are going for, take note of the colors, patterns, textures and materials currently present in your room, and opt for similar wall art.
For example, consider a space that is heavy with cabin-chic or rustic-chic décor – such as wood (with a wood coffee table, chair and television stand), dark colors and glossy textures, which may clash with a piece of light, unrefined wood wall art featuring a beach painting or other coastal setting. Instead, a black and white sketch or a warm abstract ink print on a dark wood background will add unique depth and definition while complementing the surrounding aesthetic. Conversely, a modern living room with sleek lines, bold contrasts and minimal color will need a wood wall art piece similar in style – think framed canvas-over-wood pieces featuring black and white geometric metallics or a crisp photograph of a cityscape – to maintain a refined, pulled-together ambience.
How to Style Wood Wall Art Collages
Before you plan out the details of your wood wall art collage, determine the impact you want the collage to have on your overall design scheme. Do you want to spruce up the space as a whole? Or is your room already well balanced and styled, and do you just need to freshen up a narrow, out-of-the-way corner? If you answered ‘yes’ to the former, then don’t be afraid to go big; the varied textures, patterns and colors of a collage featuring eight or even twelve pieces – alternating in sizes and featuring canvas-on-wood, tapestry and metallic décor – will energize even the dullest of spaces with sprawling style and refreshing definition.
If, on the other hand, you answered ‘yes’ to the latter, then stick to just a few elements; five at the most, before it starts to crowd a small niche. For a timeless look, consider styling three pieces of the exact same height and width side-by-side. For example, three pieces of wood wall art equal in shape, size and silhouette and featuring two identical abstract pieces – and one floral piece sandwiched in between – offer just enough elegance and symmetry to refine without overpowering.
