I found this pretty iron and wood artwork at Michael's last week, and picked it up. I'm a sucker for scrollwork pieces, and I've been looking for some large wall pieces for our new home for quite some time. So when I saw this one for 50% off, I went for it.
I love the soft, feminine curves combined with the square outline. I love the color of the wood, which coincidentally and miraculously matches our new wall color perfectly. I love that the color of the wall and the color of the wood look almost the same shade, which makes the wooden part blend in rather than being a strikingly different color on the wall.
I like the rusty metal too - just a little bit rustic, but not too much.
When I bought this piece, I had this spot in mind for it - at the bottom of our stairs, in the living room, on a blank wall. I still haven't found the right curtain panels for these windows, and so the wall is very bare and needed some interest. (My yet-to-be-implemented vision for this room includes slipcovers for the two chairs, a white slipcover on the sofa during the summer months, and soft tie-back curtain panels on the windows that have a soft barely-there pattern to them.)
I like the iron and wood artwork on this wall.
But then when I went upstairs to do some laundry, I noticed a bare wall above the bookshelf at the top landing, and thought the piece would look good there too.
Yep, this is a nice place for it too. I used to have a fall berry wreath here, then a piece of Christmas artwork, but since after Christmas it's been a blank wall again. This piece looks nice here and really gives a great focal point when you come up the stairs. It would be visible from the front foyer here as well.
But I like it in the living room too. It really draws your eye and make the room look more "finished".
But, I don't know, it looks great upstairs too.
Which would you choose? The living room...
... or the upstairs hall?
Please leave me a comment and let me know which spot you'd pick!
