Creating a Masculine Space with Metal Wall Art

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Most men dream of having their own room away from the daily grind of work and family.  While they may affectionately refer to it as a “man cave”, it is, yhst-23119701400359_2112_52906136essentially, a den or basement.  With some well placed Entertainment and Musical Wall Art,  a simple room can quickly turn into a man’s retreat.

Nothing says man’s room better than sports.  If the man in question is a baseball fanatic, add a Swinging Batter Baseball Metal Wall Hanging to the room that reflects that.  At almost 30-inches high and 15-inches wide, there will be no missing the obvious hint that a man occupies this room.  The colors are reflective of a man cave and the piece will blend in nicely with the rest of the room’s decor.

Are motorcycles a passion for your man?  With a Hog Heaven Cycle Metal Artyhst-23119701400359_2117_126299713 sculpture on the wall of his den he will be able to show off his hobby and decorate the room at the same time.  Even the colors of saddle brown, walnut, yellow, chrome, grey and black in the artwork’s design coordinate well with colors typically found in a man’s den.  The rich detail to the piece will add visual interest, as well as, a bit of sophistication.

When selecting the decor for a man’s retreat, choose pieces that are masculine, but also have a sense of style.  This will keep the man cave from looking like a college frat house, and more like the rest of your home.  By helping the man decorate his space, you show that you are not only interested in his hobbies, but that you also encourage him to take the time to relax and unwind in his own room.

Wine Inspired Wall Art

Monday, July 19th, 2010

Kitchen wall art is derived from many different areas of inspiration.  Nature, animals, modern impressions and more all find their way into kitchen decor.  One of the most common themes in kitchen colors and patterns is a beverage with natural origins.  Wine decor is one of the most used themes in kitchen decor, especially when it comes to wall art.

A common way that wine is often displayed is in a hanging wine rack.  The Rolling Vineyard Metal Wall Wine Rackyhst-23119701400359_2113_40703509 is a perfect example of such a metal wall art piece.  Its practical design holds up to four wine bottles.  By storing the wine on the wall, it too becomes part of the room’s decor.  yhst-23119701400359_2111_115550202Although there are many different wine rack styles, this particular piece has an elegant curve and flow that makes it ideal for even the most sophisticated of kitchens.

The open metal design of the Tasting for Two Metal Wine Wall Decor sculpture is another example of wine inspired wall art.  It features black metal construction shaped into the form of a wine bottle that is flanked by two wine glasses.  Its open and airy design are perfect for a more casual decor.  At 24-inches high by 15-inches wide, the metal wall sculpture makes a striking addition to the room’s wall decor.

When selecting wine inspired wall art, choose pieces that fit the look and feel of the kitchen.  While practical pieces are always helpful with storage issues, they may not carry the same aesthetic look as more casual and whimsical sculptures.  Once the wall art is added, include wine inspired accessories throughout the room to bring the look together.
