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.

Coastal bedroom with a monochromatic yellow color palette You can never go wrong with a monochromatic color scheme. Well, that’s not entirely true, but let’s focus on the good right now. Monochromatic decorating is decor based on one color and you build the color palette around that color. If you really love blues hues then you might want to look into monochromatic decorating! It’s a great way to create an eye catching living room and with the help of monochromatic decorating these living room tips can also inspire you as well.

When you’re designing a monochromatic space you don’t need to make everything the same color. In fact, do not make everything the same color. We promise you it’s too much. Pick your main color and then compliment that color with other hues of that color or neutral colors. A good neutral color to design with in monochromatic decorating is white because white goes with everything.

We love monochromatic decorating, so naturally we have to share a few inspirational monochromatic spaces with you! Scroll down and get inspired!
