HOOKED ON METAL ART!

This has been my addiction for some time now. LOL  I have really been into metal art lately.
I feel it gives our home the finished look that I have been looking for.
Our home has very high ceilings and some of these spaces have been very hard to decorate. There is just so many paintings you can hung on the walls before your home starts looking funny. I think the metal art you can find in stores today is a great addition to any space and some times, as pretty as a picture or painting.
Here are some ideas

This piece is kind of different and very pretty. When I bought it, I had no idea where it was going to end up.
This is how I used it.




I liked how it looked with the wrought iron on the stairwell




Next, is the super huge wall  on the left as you enter our house, over our formal living room and dinning room.
What a challenge this wall was! Such a big space!  It stayed empty for a long time until we finally found two of these metal pieces.





Here is what they looked like




These are so huge, but it still seemed like something was missing, so we purchased this smaller one.



We finished it last December and this is what it looks like. You can see them from everywhere in the house and even from outside, through the large arch window. We love them!


Through out the year, I have bought some other smaller pieces.
I used some over a couple of mirrors










A little extra touch over a painting in the entrance hall.
I love the Fleur de Lis!






Over the bed





And a few smaller ones around the house







I am still looking for some other special pieces for a couple more spaces and also, always looking for new ideas and inspiration on how to use metal art. Told you I was hooked! LOL
I hope you are having a great weekend.
