Although many people automatically associate wildlife art with rustic decorating styles, it can actually be used successful as part of many different decorating schemes. However, wildlife is definitely a natural when decorating a room in a rustic or “outdoorsy” theme. Here are a few ideas you can use as inspiration if you want to decorate your own home “on the wild side.”

A Touch of the Northern Wilderness

If you are decorating a cabin or a room that has a decidedly northern wilderness decorating theme, you’ll find plenty of interesting wildlife metal art sculptures that can add to the overall look. For example, a great piece of wolf metal wall art or a sculpture depicting moose, bears, or other northern wilderness wildlife species can really add an interesting and authentic look. You could use a variety of different animals throughout the room, or simply focus on one particular animal or species. For example, you could decorate a room using a bear motif, mirroring the theme through the creative use of art, wallpaper prints, tapestries, or upholstery fabrics. You could even add a faux bearskin rug to the floor to complete the look if desired.
