Browse these wall decor ideas that are sure to add style to your home. Go for large scale art, an oversize painting or photograph will command attention and set the tone in a small space.

Practical and pleasing to the eye, this oversized calendar is ideal for a family kitchen or personal office. Bikes as wall decor? Contemporary wood mounts look chic and hold the colorful bicycles in place. Think outside the box when it comes to salvaged pieces. Here, a railroad crossing sign adds vintage flair to an otherwise empty wall.
Gallery owners and museum curators, however, swear by the 60 inches on center rule. This means that you measure up 60 inches from the ground to find the spot where the center of a piece of art should be on the wall. It works well in many situations, but there are some cases when you may want to alter the height, if you are shorter than the average person, try 57 inches on center, if the art work is an unusual size or shape that looks unnatural at that height.
Instead of forking over a hefty chunk of change for a woven wall hanging, make your own. Frame this common thrift store find for a pop of color on your wall. Choose a scarf with an intricate pattern for more visual impact. Buy an inexpensive ceiling medallion at a home improvement store to mount on your wall rather than the ceiling.
