Tips On Showcasing Metal Suns In The Home To Their Full Potential
The shape of a sun is a image that can have a profound positive effect on us and it is no surprise that it has become popular in interior design through metal sun wall décor. These suns come in a range of shapes, styles, metals and colours to suit different tastes and, when used to their full potential, they can have a big impact on feel of a room while also enhancing colour schemes and themes.
The type of metal can alter the effect that the sun will have and its ideal placement.
Different metals go in and out of fashion in interior design trends and they all have a different effect on the feel of the sun and its impact on a room. Some clean copper models are meant to be indoors in warm rooms with complementary features like rustic kitchens, some silvery steel and alloy offerings work better in rooms where design overrules comfort and rough, beaten bronzes bring a sense of outdoor sculpture indoors, perhaps making them better suited to transitional rooms like conservatories and summer houses.
Minimalist, abstract designs v.s. bold, childlike ones.
The range of designs for metal sun wall décor is vast as designers take inspiration from a universal theme and run with it. In many adult rooms where décor is carefully considered and refined, artistic offerings that are more minimalist or abstract can be quite complementary. These pieces can also make more of a statement so if you are looking for a conversation starter on a focal wall, something with striking lines, plenty of bold rays or an odd twist on the design would be ideal. Of course there is also the other end of the metal sun spectrum, the detailed, almost childlike suns with their smiling faces that are too warm and comforting for a stark living room.
Whichever style you choose, always think about the colour and how it will have an impact on the room and other furnishings.
Often these metal suns are crafted purely out of that one material, letting the colour of the iron or copper do the talking or allowing the colour of wall to contrast against it through the gaps in the rays. This is great if you want a bold shape on a brightly coloured wall but a more subtle approach is to take a sun with colours included, such as those with coloured glass centres or ceramic or shell designs at the ends of the rays and pick out other objects and furnishings – lamps, vases, cushions, etc – to match those hues. Furthermore, the soft, seaside tones created by shell designs also adds to a room with a marine or nautical theme, which leads nicely to the final point.
Colour is a great starting point for a room but so is a theme or a culture.
Last but not least, consider metal suns that have some cultural significance. Sometimes a sun is just that, a standard motif that is common in western culture; other times, a sun can have a much different shape and style and be closely associated with a specific culture or region. The clean, laser-cut shapes of an Oriental sun, for example, not only look good in a clean, minimalist room but can work with other Eastern designs and are therefore a great wall decoration in rooms with a Japanese feel when there isn't the space for bolder artwork.
