Wall decor is a creative way to add personality and style to any room in your home.

When shopping for wall decorations, there are a few things to consider, such as the type, style and the materials used.

Types of Wall Decor

To suit your unique decor taste, there are many different types of wall decor available at World Market, including:

  • Clocks: Clocks are a functional and fashionable way to add interest to a wall. Perfect for your frequently used rooms, it's an easy way to keep an eye on the time.
  • Shelves: Display books, framed photos, houseplants and more on wall shelves. They're ideal for adding extra vertical storage to smaller spaces and take up none of your precious floor space.
  • Wall hangings: Wall hangings add a welcoming touch of design and texture to your home. They can be made from a variety of materials, such as fabric, paper, or metal.
  • Tapestries: Tapestries are large, decorative wall hangings that can add a dash of elegance or whimsy to a room. They are often made from soft printed fabric, wool or other natural fibers.
  • Wall decals: Wall decals are a playful way to add a pop of color and pattern to a dorm, apartment or kid's bedroom. They are typically made from vinyl with a DIY peel-and-stick adhesive backing for easy application and removal.

Styles of Wall Decor

Whether you stick to a theme or mix and match, there are many different styles of wall decor to explore, including:

  • Traditional: Traditional wall decor is known for its classic style and timeless appeal. It includes ornate frames, intricate patterns and warm, inviting colors. This type of decor can include wall panels, metal work and more, and mixes well with classic and farmhouse decor aesthetics.
  • Contemporary: Contemporary wall decor is distinguished by its modern style and sleek lines. It typically has simple frames, minimalist or abstract design and cool, neutral colors. Mid-century and art deco influences can be seen in this style.
  • Eclectic: Characterized by its broad mix of styles and materials, eclectic wall decor is inspired by motifs from around the globe. It often features unexpected pieces that pair perfectly with a youthful or bohemian home style.

Materials of Wall Decor

Wall decor can be made from a variety of materials, including:

  • Wood: A durable material from Mother Nature, wood is often used for frames, signs and shelves. Available in a variety of types and finishes, it has subtle, natural variations in the grain pattern that give each piece a one-of-a-kind rustic look.
  • Metal: Strong and versatile, metal can be used for frames, wall panels and wall hangings. It's typically finished in modern black or glamorous gold and silver.
  • Glass: Glass is typically implemented in framed prints, shadowbox art or sculptural art. It gives any wall decor a more upscale finish.
  • Fabric: Full of natural texture, fabric adds a warm element to the home. From cotton and wool to linen and velvet, you'll find it in wall hangings, tapestries and framed on its own as textile art.
  • Paper: Paper is a lightweight and inexpensive material that can be used for posters, prints, and wall hangings. A fresh, clean base for any artwork, it's used in all styles of wall decor including our special assortment of sculptural rice paper shadowbox art.

From a hallway to the living room, wall decorations of all shapes and sizes can uplift a space with character and charm.
