You don't have to gut the living room or start a major project to give your home the face lift it needs! You can turn any home into a welcoming space that feels bright, inspiring and unique to your personality and family's taste. 

No one should have to live in a home or apartment and feel the depressing contribution of barren walls. The prescription for those barren walls is simply to dress them up in a stylish and creative way. There is so much wall decor out there, that it's now easy to create a new identity in every room both quickly and affordably. By adding framed art, you are able to easily highlight each and every room in your house. Here's how you can freshen up your home with the beauty of wall art.

Here's How You Can Freshen Up Your Home With Wall Art!Skip Conventionality ... You are used to seeing wall art arrive in the form of paintings or posters, but it doesn't always have to be that way. Wall art can also include creative placement of clocks, mirrors, sculptures and even the elements like wood and metal. Don't be afraid of using the negative space in your favor as well.  Check pinterest for more visual inspiration too! You don't need to completely shun more conventional wall art; after all, it's popular for a reason, but don't feel limited by common conventions.

Three is a Magic Number ... Sets of three are hot in trend and allow you to have multiple pieces by the same artist.  Shop for paintings or photos done by the same creator and buy them in sets of three. There are a huge number of arrangements and display schemes you can cook up with three matching pieces of framed art. Usually, the three will have an underlying theme or been specifically designed to be displayed together. Compliment the sets by adding hanging and standing plants as plant style bookends to 'frame' your display.

  1. Size matters ...
     When it comes to choosing wall art, size always matters. Small pieces have no place on massive walls. Massive paintings shouldn't be forced to fit on small spaces. Be careful not to overwhelm the rest of your wall decor with one especially large piece of wall art. At the same time, make sure not to crowd any furniture you have pushed up against the wall. Before buying wall art, measure the wall space. Imagine how you plan on hanging wall decor before you choose the art itself.
