Outdoor wall art comes in all shapes, silhouettes and materials to bring beauty to any space. Don't let the endless option overwhelm you because we're sharing the best ideas for every style of outdoor wall art in one place. Peruse our top picks for the best canvas, metal, iron and botanical-style outdoor wall art in the links below. And, be sure to check out the outdoor wall clocks while you're at it.

Outdoor Medallion Art

Shape up your back porch or patio with eye-catching medallion wall art. The medallion silhouette is curvy and round, bringing softness to otherwise rigid exterior walls. Take a minimalist approach with streamlined circle designs or go bold with a sculptural floral medallion instead. Install a medallion-style piece solo above your outdoor fireplace or in sets of two or three on an empty wall to create a balanced vignette.

Outdoor Canvas Art

Create a seamless blend between your indoor wall art collection and outdoor space with vibrant, all-weather canvas prints. These specialty canvases come in every size and color story, allowing you to continue your interior design aesthetic beyond the back door.

Pro tip: Not all canvas art can withstand the elements. Invest in rust-resistant, UV-protected and waterproof canvas designs to ensure your artwork will continue to bring beauty to your deck or patio for years to come.


21 Beautiful Outdoor Rugs for Every Style

Make your outdoor space an inviting place to lounge by adding a pretty and practical rug.


Outdoor Clocks

Watch the day slip away while luxuriating on your all-weather sofa with an oversized outdoor wall clock. Wall clocks are practical and pretty, providing you with a time check while grilling on the back deck and giving outdoor rooms a pulled-together, finished appeal.

Anchor a grand outdoor clock above your patio fireplace or under your covered porch wall for easy reading. Select a finish that contrasts against your exterior wall or chimney for maximum design impact.

Metal Outdoor Wall Decor

Metal outdoor wall decor never fails to bring beauty and interest to backyards, gardens and patios alike. Popular outdoor metal art is copper, iron, brass or steel-forged for texture-rich, dynamic results. The metal wall art is naturally durable, embracing the elements to develop a one-of-a-kind patina over time.

Incorporate metal artwork with a custom name sign, a geometric sculpture or even an iron-framed garden mirror. Pair your sleek metallic accents with earthy acacia wood or teak outdoor furniture for a striking, balanced display.

Botanical Outdoor Wall Decor

Botanical art for your outdoor space? Groundbreaking. No, seriously — florals and flashy palm outdoor wall art will enliven and enrich an alfresco design. Our advice: Use the season as your muse when selecting your botanical wall decor. Install beachy frond art above your outdoor console table during the summer months and replace them with bare branch artwork during fall and winter.


The Best Patio Chairs for Every Style and Budget

These weather-resistant chairs are just what you need to transform your outdoor space into a summer oasis.


Iron Garden Signs

Kick your charm into high gear with custom iron garden plaques and shields. These dainty accents add a dash of color and whimsy to exterior walls and offer chic direction throughout your outdoor space. Snag inviting signage to greet guests on your fence door or splurge on a custom-painted plaque with your family name and hang it by your back entryway.
