Once I’ve decorated a room, one of my favourite things is to find fun and interesting wall art to give it a finished look. In a time where lots of us tend to choose pale and neutral shades for our wall colour, using creative ways to add interest to our walls will really bring the room to life. And this doesn’t have to be expensive either.
One of my favourite walls in my own home (well there’s two actually) is my wall collage in the dining room which I created from old pictures we already owned, some new prints put into old frames and some framed wallpaper. I also have a personal wall collage on my stairway with images of my children through the years, all in a similar black and white theme. Neither of these wall collages cost me lots of money. Frames can be purchased so cheaply now, and photos can be printed from the comfort of our own home, and before you know it, you’ve created something unique and personal. Take a look at this brilliant, personal wall collage that Rachel created on her blog Corner by Corner, in a corner of her kitchen, if you’d like some inspiration for your own home.
At the moment I’m creating a little space at home where I can work. It’s not a big space but I want the workspace to be inspirational to me, somewhere I feel calm and relaxed and happy. A creative piece of wall art or a personal photo does that for me, so I’m looking around for something I can use. We’ve just been on holiday so I have some lovely photographs that could work, I just need to find the right one.
My children love putting artwork on their walls and my 9 year old has requested a poster or two recently. I’m not sure how I feel about it this, it depends on the imagery I think but I want to encourage her to express herself and her creativity. Posters are a great, inexpensive way to add interest to walls. Remember when you were a teenage and adorned your walls with posters of your favourite popstar? Remember when your Mum shouted at you because the blutack ripped the paint off the walls? Posters have come a long way since then and now come in all styles and designs.
Take the posters from Posterlounge for example who have a great range of really well prices posters in all different styles. I’m loving their children’s art range, which would be great for a child’s bedroom or even a playroom.
If you’re looking for something more grown up how about these. I’ve picked out a few of my favourites but why not take a look around and find some of your own.
What do you think? Have you used Posters in your own home for creative wall art?
