Metal Art

Happy Monday! I am off this week to take care of my grandbaby Ezra again but wanted to leave a post for you.  have a great week!
Metal art work or Wall Grills as they are often called, is very big in the world of decorating. Metal art work is great because it is "colorless" so it works in almost any setting. It is a great way to incorporate art without trying to make it match other things in the room. It can give a wall a light airy feel or depending on the piece give it a weightier feel and help anchor the room. Using metal to decorate with can be a good investment. You can change the color scheme of the room and the piece will still match. It can also be moved from one room to the next to refresh a room. This is especially great if you like to change things often. It is important to remember when hanging it, to place it in an area that is proportionate to the size of the piece. A common mistake is placing a piece that is too little above a sofa or piece that is too big on a small wall. Invest in a piece today. You'll be surprised by the versatility of it. If you need help choosing a piece or help with placement, I am available to assist you through my on line decorating service. If item is purchased through, service is free.


  1. Love these and I have some all around our home. I think they are very subtel way of adding texture to a room.

  2. Debbie,
    I love the metal art you showed on the fireplace mantel. Something like that would look great behind a cooktop on the backpsplash (or in place of), especially if there wasn't any tile or tile design there. I used something like that in our cabinet showroom because they didn't want to spend money on a tile backsplash.
    Hope you have a good week!

  3. I love metal decorative pieces! I covered the electrical panel in my poolhouse with a metal wall hanging! I will take a picture and show it to you sometime! I was quite proud of myself for coming up with it to cover the eyesore:)

    Enjoy your week with that sweetiepie Ezra! HUGS!

  4. I have several pieces of metal scroll art and I just love them! I couldn't agree more. They go with everything! Love them!

  5. I love using metal pieces in my own home. A client made life difficult recently though when she said, "And I don't want one of those metal piece thingys", which would have looked perfect in her entry!

  6. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.
