Wrought Iron Wall Decor - A Key Element In Tuscan Decorating

May 3, 2008
The most popular interior decorating style today, Tuscan is favored for its Old Mediterranean romantic charm and its friendly warmth, and wrought iron wall decor is a perfect match. The Tuscan theme calls for a rustic, relaxed country feel where earthy colors and patina are preferred over shiny and modern. Key elements to Tuscan decorating include natural wood, terracotta, sunflowers, earthy colors such as brick red, copper, olive green, burgundy, Mediterranean burnt orange and golden yellow; all things vineyard - grapes, grapevines, grape leaves; and wrought iron accents everywhere.

This article will focus on the latter, in the form of wrought iron wall decor, and will show you some wonderful ways you can use this in conjunction with your other Tuscan decorating elements to create a pulled together and inviting look.

Wrought iron wall decor comes in many shapes and forms, including iron wall plagues and metal wall grilles. Many of these have a burnished appearance with beautiful copper and reddish brown highlights, perfect for Tuscan decorating.

When you are looking for a work of art that pulls your Tuscan decorating together, a piece of wrought iron wall decor will give you a big impact for little effort. Metal wall grilles and sculptures and iron wall plaques add dimension, architectural detail, beauty and a touch of class to any Tuscan designed room.

Without further ado, here are some easy and beautiful ways to use wrought Iron wall decor, such as iron wall plaques and metal wall grilles, in your Tuscan decorating:

* Hang a large wrought iron plaque or metal wall grille on a large empty wall and accent with a big terracotta vase of sunflowers (real or silk) on a rustic sideboard beneath. When displaying large wall decor, use large sized accents as well.

* What's a Tuscan room without Old-World vineyard accents? Charm your guests with an iron wall plaque such as the Laurum Grape Iron Wall Décor, which crafted of durable cast iron, intertwines bunches of grapes with grapevines, leaves and scrollwork.

* Accent your wrought iron wall decor with Tuscan staples, such as decorative grapes or silk sunflowers.

* Place large, chunky candles on a table top with a wrought iron wall plaque hanging above. The flickering light from the candles will highlight the metal creating beautiful effects. Add a terracotta table fountain to bring a touch of a Tuscan courtyard to your display.

* Offset your wrought iron wall decor piece with romantic wall lanterns.

* In the bedroom, use wrought iron wall decor in place of a headboard.

* Decorate a large wall along an open stairway with an arrangement of iron wall plaques or metal wall grilles.

* Hang a painting or framed print of a peaceful Tuscan landscape (stone farmhouse, vineyards dotting the sun-washed hillsides, crumbing stone walls, etc.) and offset with metal wall sconces.

* Hang a 4-panel piece such as the Vantania Metal Wall Tree Plaque over your sofa and arrange the lighting to showcase the copper tones and flower buds.

When you shop for wrought iron wall decor, consider how you can best use it to
create the Tuscan decorating style you are after. With a little imagination you can create striking effects with your wrought iron wall decor.
