:: Decorate Those Walls With Art & Photos ::


What’s Trending Wednesday

Black and white framed photos on a modern coastal wallReady to get the most out of your walls? Good! Because it’s time to them with art and photos!

We can’t just hang any old art though, no-no. No one wants to be that person that just puts something in their home because they saw it once in a magazine. We must take steps to be better than that. Take some time to sit down and have an honest, open conversation with yourself about art. Really put some thought into it because it’s something you are going to be looking at it everyday and every guest that enters your home with see.

This is why we must choose something fun! We must choose something meaningful! Maybe add some colorful? Maybe something silly? At least make it something cherished and loved!

A good part of the fun is the hunt. Heading out on the Wild West that is the internet and searching for your new art. The search for art is a great way to get to know yourself. You find your likes, dislikes and what really calls to you. Art is truly a great way to express yourself and to further imprint onto your home.

As always we won’t leave you baby birds without proper art inspiration. This, of course, is just a mere taste of what’s out in the wonderful world waiting to be added to your home. Go out into the world and find a piece that begs to be on your walls! Or realistically log on to Pinterest and type in ‘coastal art’ or something niche like that.
