It's a New Year! Welcome 2022! What better time to share with you our Top 22 decor items and tips to help you turn your home into that HGTV home you've been after. All it takes is a few unique, maybe farmhouse inspired, decor pieces and some helpful tips to get you well on your way. So, let's get to it, shall we?
1. How about some Fish Bones Wall Hooks?
Wall hooks are a great way to help organize your space, especially if floor space is an issue. Easily mount them to any wall, and hang things like keys, scarves, leashes, hats... or use one as a jewelry organizer. These fish bones wall hooks are a fave among our customers, and it's easy to see why! Hand crafted and absolutely unique, these cast iron metal wall hooks are perfect for any space that needs some organization. Makes a great gift idea for your favorite fisherman or a great addition to your beach or lake house.
2. Add a Faux Lion head into the mix!
Lions are known for their majestic appearance. Commonly referred to as "the King of the Beasts," they are a symbol of power, strength, and courage. And if that wasn't enough, they are beautiful creatures! So why not add one of these beauties to your decor?
3. Mini Lion Heads are the perfect accent!
Our customer have had the most amazing things to say about them.
For instance, Tawny says "Terrific, this is such an amazing piece of artwork for our daughters home. Her decor in her living room and kitchen is safari/African themed and this enhances it beautifully!! Thanks so much!!"
We couldn't agree more, Tawny! Nothing says "safari" like a lion!
4. The perfect Wall Clock is a MUST!
An all time favorite is our 18" Beach Wall Clock! Handmade of wood, the distressed appearance of this clock (which by the way is hand painted and distressed, not a sticker like others you may have seen) make this the perfect rustic, beach themed additional to your space.
Another great beachy decor piece is that Rustic Anchor! Right? Can you see it in your home?
5. Anchor's Away!
There is nothing beachier than an anchor! A definite favorite among our customers. Also, available in white if you're looking for that beachy feel but don't want to do too rustic. Made of cast iron, these anchors were made to last!
Check out our White Anchor, too!
6. How to decorate with Faux Taxidermy decor?
Having some fun faux animal decor adorning your home is great, and certainly unique, but knowing where and how to hang it can sometimes be a challenge. There are a few easy to follow do's and don't's when trying to choose the best piece, and where to hang it. Consider the following for some helpful hints. (Note: these tips work for ALL decor accents, not just Faux animal pieces)
- Don’t add one small piece to a large empty wall – This will create an underwhelming look & feel!
- Do add 1 or 2 large pieces to a blank wall, like above your fireplace or sofa, to draw attention to a focal point and also set a more formal tone for your room.
- Don’t add one large piece to a half wall or a small wall either – This will create an overwhelming feeling! A smaller piece is best in this case.
- Do have fun with a gallery wall if you have a large space.
-Start by grouping 3 to 5 decor accents (or more depending on the size of the wall) and make sure it looks natural by unifying the space with the same amount of space between them. Add a small faux animal head, like a small wolf, lion, or deer for a pop of dimension in between your framed pictures!
For instance, this Large Deer Skull is the perfect size, hung centered above the sofa. Anything smaller would be too underwhelming, and while, maybe, this home owner could have added a few smaller pictures or other decor items on either side, I think this piece is the perfect balance. And, best of all, it's a definite eye-catcher!
7. Wall Arrows are a great rustic accent
These Wall Arrows are great if you need something to fill in some blank space on your gallery wall, or if you are in need of a touch of rustic to finish your look. Metal Arrow Wall Decor is not only rustic and metal which adds a Farmhouse feel, but it also lends itself well to southwestern decor themes as well. Available in Rustic Bronze and Gold to compliment any space.
8. Mini White Deer Head, anyone?
This is where Wall Charmers started, and is still one of our best sellers! How can it not be? The detail in this piece is amazing and due to it's smaller size, its fits virtually anywhere! A great gallery wall addition, perfect for kids room or nursery, decorate with just 1, or more depending on your wall space, it's an eye-catching focal point in any space.
9. Large Deer Heads are a show stopper, too!
Need something larger? Here you go! This Large Deer Head has the same amazing detail and jaw dropping effect as the Mini Deer, but it's on the larger side so it's perfect to hang over your fireplace, centered over your bed, or any large wall space that needs some love.

10. Decorating your home with Mirrors!
If you’re not blessed with an abundance of natural light (and even if you are but want our space to look larger), mirrors can help reflect the light you do have around the room creating the illusion of a larger space. Try adding a large mirror to your blank wall space or creating a gallery wall of different sizes and shapes. It makes a world of difference.
Aside from creating the look of spaciousness, be conscious of the hang height of your wall mirror. A mirror should always be hung at the appropriate height for the space. The level in which you hang your mirror will depend on what you want to be reflected. Eye-level works well in many cases, but higher or lower can also work depending on the situation.
For instance, if you have a tall curio cabinet on the opposing side, you may want to hang your mirror higher. This is also true when hanging a mirror above a piece of furniture. Depending on the height of the furniture and the other decor elements on that furniture, your mirror should be hung at a height that accents it all well.
Wall Charmers Hanging Wall Mirrors are the perfect addition to any home no matter your decor style.

15. Decorating with Metal - Should you Mix & Match?
There are many rules we all try to follow when it comes to home decor, and these rules exist for a reason, although there is always flexibility. It is, after all, your home and in the end you can do what you wish. Some people are dead set against mixing different metals when decorating with metal decor items in their home.

22. And lastly... If you LOVE it - Make it Work!
Everyone envisions their space based on pictures they see on social media or maybe an HGTV show (so many to choose from) but in the end it's all about your space and how to make it work. No, not every piece of decor we see that catches our eye and screams "take me home" will work in every space, but often times, with a few small changes you can make it work. It isn't always necessary to make a big change, like repainting your wall (although that's certainly doable). It can be as easy as the addition of some wood or rustic elements to make a new decor piece that stole your heart work in your space!
