7. Old-world Style Rustic Shelf Display
Although rustic wall décor often has a very casual feel about it, this is a lovely example of rustic art in a slightly more refined collection. In this case, the natural elements are present but the styling is more dramatic and the features more refined than other examples of rustic wall décor. The fine detailing of the chair rail, picture frame, shelf, and clock is not identical but works so well together, that fact is unimportant. The candleholder, planter, and bird all are in the same color scheme and the candles, trinket box, and plant compliment the wall as well as the other elements of the grouping.
8. “Love” Wall Art with Reclaimed Wood and Fabric
Typography does not need to be three- dimensional to have a stunning impact. In this rustic wall decoration idea, you can see the visual impact of combining multiple wood tones with fabric and painted typography. The love sentiment is especially popular in both the romantic and the familial sense; the use of ecru fabric roses to make a heart to replace the letter O in love points to a more romantic setting for a piece of wall art like this. A simple adjustment in the making of the letter O would make a similar art piece perfect for a family room or dining area.
9. Wall Collage with Reclaimed Metal Farm Fixtures
Smaller pieces of rustic wall decor in creative groupings can make the same meaningful statements as their larger counterparts. This combination of wood, typography, and metal in a neutral color scheme becomes softer by using floral elements. An interesting focal point comes from using two different colors of wood panels on the wall and connecting the wood at an unusual angle. The surrounding rustic and antique items anchor this collection. Balance and spacing play a large part in the success of this grouping; notice how the various clustered elements do not appear to be overcrowded. Achieve proper spacing by creating a model of the pieces you will use on either the floor or a table. Don’t be afraid to experiment with various items, this is an expressive way to have fun while decorating.
