1. Wooden beads in relief

In this image, you can see how wooden planks have been used in decorating the wall. But there is a difference. The wall has different layers and this is what makes it so very special. The broad and wide layers tend to impart a sense of motion and animation in the room. Not only this the natural wooden shades provide enriching warmth, dimension and depth in the room.

2. Thinner wooden beads

The effect achieved in this is similar to the previous idea; just the width and the breadth of the beads are lesser. The beads have a longer length development. The nuances in this kind of wall décor are elegant and lighter, and the changing colour tones are visually appealing.
