One of my favorite design elements is the use of wrought iron or other metal art to make a decor statement. I love to see it used in unique ways, as accent pieces, and in combination with wood. It can make an otherwise drab area stand out as a focal feature, or it can take an already stately room and turn it into something magnificent.
Iron As An Insert
In my piano room, I felt that this wall was just crying out for something unique. So, I decided to have an insert made from wrought iron. It has an oil rubbed finish that matches the stair railings in the house. I also had a second identical insert placed at the top of the stairs on the knee wall.(Stairs can be seen in the background of the photo). The insert gives a feel of a more open space. FYI – that is one of my girls sitting in the chair. She likes to be involved in everything. 😉
