IRON DECORATING IDEAS

HAVING AN INTEREST IN IRON DECORATING IS SOMETHING THAT HAS DEVELOPED OVER TIME FOR ME. I AM CERTAINLY NOT AN EXPERT WHEN IT COMES TO INTERIOR DECORATING IN GENERAL, ONE THING I HAVE LEARNED IS PEOPLE HAVE THERE OWN VIEWS AND IDEAS OF WHAT THEY PERSONALLY FIND ATTRACTIVE FOR THERE HOME.

THERE IS A CERTAIN UNIQUE QUALITY THAT IRON DECOR CAN BRING TO YOUR HOME, ITS STRENGTH AND DURABILITY IS ONE ASPECT, ANOTHER IS HOW THE DESIGN OF THE OBJECT APPEALS TO YOUR PARTICULAR TASTE.

ALTHOUGH I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH METAL AND IRON WORK IN AN INDUSTRIAL ENVIROMENT FOR MANY YEARS, IT TOOK A WHILE FOR ME TO FIND THAT CREATIVE SIDE, BEFORE I STARTED DEVOTING QUALITY TIME AND EFFORT IN METAL HOME FURNISHINGS.

BELOW ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF HOW IRON AND METAL DECOR CAN BE USED TO ACCENT YOUR HOME, JUST SOME CREATIVE IDEAS THAT I WANT TO SHARE WITH MY VISITORS. I HOPE YOU FIND THE INTERESTING AND UNIQUE.

IRON PLANTER

IRON DECORATING...FOR AN ATTRACTIVE AND FRAGRANT DISPLAY THIS IRON PLANTER GOES GREAT WITH SOME FRESH FLOWERS.

THE VIBRANT AND NATURAL COLORS OF A FLORAL ARRANGEMENT, BLENDED WITH AN IRON STRUCTURE CAN CREATE A BEAUTIFUL VIEW TO ADD TO A TABLE, COUNTERTOP, MANTLE, OR MAYBE A SHELF.

ADDING A SMALL WATER SOURCE CAN EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR FLOWERS, I WAS ABLE TO GET 3 DAYS OUT OF THIS ORGANIC ARRANGEMENT USING A SMALL CRYSTAL BOWL.

YOU CERTAINLY CAN GET CREATIVE, ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE IN THE COUNTRY WITH AN ABUNDANCE OF FLOWER AND PLANT SPECIES, OR MAYBE YOU ARE A CITY DWELLER, A LOCAL FLORIST SHOULD HAVE A NICE SELECTION TO CHOOSE FROM. NOTHING LIKE BRINGING SOME NATURAL BEAUTY INTO THE ASPHALT JUNGLE OF THE URBAN ENVIROMENT.

WALL IRON DECOR

CANDLE SCONCE... ACCENTING YOUR WALLS WITH A DECORATIVE PIECE OF IRON ART IS ANOTHER WAY TO ADD SOME UNIQUE FLAIR TO YOUR HOME. THIS GOTHIC STYLE CANDLE SCONCE HAS THAT OLD IRON FEEL TO IT, A BLACK AND GOLD CRACKLE COAT FINISH PRESENTS A RUSTIC WEATHERD APPEARENCE.

ALSO ACCOMPANIED BY A TULIP SHAPED GLASS CANDLE HOLDER, WITH A WHITE CANDLE. I'VE HAD THIS ONE LOCATED ON A LIGHT BLUE BATHROOM WALL, ABOUT 14 INCHES ABOVE A SHELF.

ORNAMENTAL WALL DECOR CAN BE AN ATTRACTIVE ADDITION TO YOUR DECORATING PROJECTS. IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU FIND APPEALING AND TASTEFUL, SOME PEOPLE LIKE MODERN AND ABSTRACT OBJECTS, AND OTHERS FANCY A TRADITIONAL STYLE, SUCH AS, VICTORIAN AND ART NOUVEAU. FOR ME, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FOND OF IRONWORK THAT HAS A BOTANICAL THEME TO IT.

DECORATIVE METAL FURNITURE

ORNAMENTAL TELEPHONE TABLE...A NICE DECORATIVE TABLE OFFERS A LITTLE ELEGANCE AND FUNCTION FOR YOUR IRON DECORATING. THIS TELEPHONE TABLE HAS A SLIGHT ART NOUVEAU STYLE AND SHAPE, A TOUCH OF FRENCH INSPIRED IRONWORK WAS AN INFLUENCE FOR THIS ABOVE MENTIONED TABLE.

A WHITE 12 INCH MARBLE TILE BLENDS THE IRON FRAME, CREATING A NICE HIGHLIGHT FOR THE TOP OF THIS TABLE'S SURFACE. A TEXTURED BLACK GRANITE PAINT FINISH GIVES A DURABLE AND NATURAL STONE APPERANCE, A LITTLE MORE EXOTIC THAN A BASIC FLAT BLACK COATING.

A DRAWER AND SHELF PROVIDE ADDITIONAL FUNCTION FOR STORAGE AND DISPLAY. MAYBE A HALLWAY OR FOYER WOULD BE A GOOD SPOT FOR PLACING THIS CLASSIC LOOKING PIECE.
