Rustic Wall Art

If you are planning to turn your home into a rustic wonderland, focus on creating a natural ambience. To achieve this, pick nature inspired wall decor. Pieces like a botanical printed or painted canvas with flowers, plants or leaves and landscapes like a forest, lakes or paintings depicting the country side will go very well with a rustic theme. Contrast a blank wall against canvas paintings with colorful details and it will draw in a lot of attention while making the space appear brighter. Decor items like wooden animal heads and wall hangings will add to the appeal.
