Song Lyrics

Your favorite song can be more than just background music.  It can help create a statement-making backdrop to almost any room in your home.  Write the lyrics directly onto your wall, or, if you’re worried about your penmanship, type them out and have the lyrics printed onto a large piece of paper that can be plaqued or framed. song lyrics


There’s nothing more classic than a black and white stripe - and on the wall, that combination can instantly up a room’s chic factor.  We love that these stripes help to create a separate small home office space.   stripes


If stripes aren’t your thing, this geometric wallpaper is also a wonderful way to make a statement.  Fun, bold, and perfect for this gender-neutral nursery, we love that the simple grey tones really make the bright yellow accents pop. shapes


Pallet walls are warm, cozy, and right on trend.  Best of all, since you can create this look with reclaimed pallet wood, they’re also relatively inexpensive.  The Saw Guy has a tutorial that walks you through how to create your own pallet wall on virtually any wall in your home.  pallet

9. Fabric

If you like the look of different colors, prints, and patterns, but are hesitant to put any of those things directly onto your walls, fabric hoop wall art could be the perfect solution.  Plus it’s a good way for all of you sewing enthusiasts to use up some of your scraps!fabric

Large Canvas

One large photograph (or two) can be all it takes to make a big statement.  If you have a print or picture you really love, blow it up and give it a wall all its own.  Similar to artwork displayed in gallery, keep the wall color simple so that the image can really shine.large canvas
