Wooden wall art is a great way to add a touch of warmth and a natural feel to your home decor. It is a unique and eco-friendly alternative to traditional wall decor and can instantly transform the feel and aesthetic of your space.

Clients often ask for our feedback or opinion on how to incorporate our designs into their homes. This could be questions about the artwork size, the correct placement, incorporating timber and colours into the existing decor, or playing with new ideas to use our designs in other projects. Since we often have those conversations with our customers I thought I share how you can incorporate wooden wall art in your decor concept.


6 Ways to Incorporate Wooden Wall Art in Your Home Decor


Create a Focal Point

Wooden wall art can serve as a stunning focal point in any room. Most people will have the odd canvas or maybe a few framed pictures on their walls, but wooden wall art is quite unique and unusual making it the perfect type of wall decor to really draw attention to. Hang a large wooden art piece above your sofa, bed or dining table to create a visual anchor. Choose one of our bespoke designs that complements your own style and decor to tie in what’s already there to create a visual connection. Wooden wall art adds texture and depth to your walls, and they work particularly well if you use other natural textures such as linen, jute, or leather in your decor. A locally made, handcrafted wooden art piece is also a great conversation starter for guests.

Add a Rustic Touch

If you want to create a cosy and rustic atmosphere in your home, wooden wall art is the perfect choice. Pick a piece from our range that has a weathered or distressed look, or go with a design that features a lot of natural grain and knots in the timber. This will add character and warmth to your interior design but still look sophisticated and unique. Darker timbers such as Jarrah, Merbau or Sheoak work great with farmhouse-style homes that boast that extra rustic and homely look. Lighter timbers such as pine or oak can add that rustic vibe to your cosy beach shack-style abode, particularly those designs with distressed white accents.

Mix and Match

Don’t be afraid to mix and match different styles and types of wall art designs. A lot of our customers have purchased several artworks and combined them in multi-panel feature walls with fantastic visual results. You can also mix our wooden decor pieces with your own art pieces, such as canvas or other materials. Combining modern and traditional designs can create a unique and eclectic look and a dynamic wall display.

Create a Gallery Wall

A gallery wall is a great way to display a collection of art pieces. Our Tessera and Mini series are a great way to start building a feature wall. Choose various wooden art designs, sizes, and shapes from our range to create a visually interesting display. Some of our customers have commissioned multi-panel installations to match their home decor and interior design style perfectly, and even asked us to incorporate their wall paint into their artworks. Our biggest installation was a seven-panel set that a customer in France commissioned. You can arrange your artwork cohesively to complement your existing decor and aesthetic. A gallery wall is a great way to breathe life into a large, blank wall that needs some character.


Use Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Decor

Wooden wall art is a sustainable and eco-friendly choice for your home decor. We use predominantly reclaimed timber such as salvaged materials from recycling yards, old furniture, leftover construction timber from building sites or cutoff pieces from hardware stores. We also use recyclable packing materials and reuse as much of our waste materials as possible. Each of our designs is handcrafted by us here in Perth, Western Australia. You are not only supporting a small family business but are also purchasing an eco-friendly handcrafted product that is locally made with a small environmental footprint. Handmade wooden wall art is a beautiful way to bring nature into your home while being mindful of the environment and looking after our planet.

Functional Art

Did you know that we don’t only create wall decor pieces but also functional art? Wood mosaics can be applied to table tops or barn doors, which we have done many times in the past. We can also customise wood mosaic bed heads or even entire feature walls. Incorporating wood art into furniture is a great way to let your creativity run free and add a truly unique statement item to your space. 


The Takeaway

Wooden decor is a versatile and unique interior design option that can add warmth and character to any home. You can commission a bespoke design with us and receive artwork that perfectly fuses into your existing decor, or you can get inspired by the many design options in our shop.
