Wood Art 101
What is Wood Art?
Wood art is a variety of wall art made from natural wood. Though often used in rustic and industrial homes, wood art can also fit right in with even the most contemporary setting. By pairing handsome craftsmanship with the natural beauty of woodgrain, prints, ornaments, clocks, and carvings made from wood all bring charming authenticity to any decor.
A lot of wood art utilizes natural brown and grey tones, but it can also be painted and printed with any color imaginable. Some wood art is even deliberately torched to bring out the rugged flair of blackened wood. Wooden plaques can also feature printings of animals, plants, maps, flags, quotes, people, and much more, allowing you to find a piece that is perfect for any motif.
Wooden carvings range from ornate to plain and often feature rich stains to amplify the gorgeous natural patterns in the woodgrain. Many wood carvings display intricate floral designs and abstract geometries, though carved decorations can also exhibit animals and landscapes.
How to Decorate with Wood Art
A large, colorful piece of wood art can be a beautiful focal point in any room, while a smaller and more naturally-colored piece will add atmospheric charm without drawing too much attention. In rustic decor, use wooden pieces that accentuate the natural patterns and hues of the wood. For a more contemporary motif, use a piece with an artisticprint. Wooden plaques printed with quotes can be inspirational and humorous, and some wooden art is specifically designed for holiday decorating. As with all other forms of wall art, find wooden art that matches the color scheme and mood of your home decor.
