These days, you don`t have to go to salvage yards or dumps to find this type of wall decor. In fact, you can buy new items that are made to look like old architectural pieces. My personal favorite is wrought iron pieces that look like old gates or fences. These go with a wide range of decorating themes and look great on your walls.
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.
Adding a chair rail or opting for a wainscoting or paneling project, which will require a helper with a few carpentry skills, is still another way to dress up those tired old walls. Doing something simpler like covering a less than perfect wall with fabric or just making a decorative curtain wall to cover the entire space is another alternative. Walls decorated with an interesting fabric are practical, good-looking, and flexible and can also be used to complement other fabric items in your room.
