If there is one thing about home décor that annoys me the most, it’s the fact that so many people hang up generic wall art they find at the store. How many “Starry Night” reprints are currently hanging over American dinner tables? It’s tragic.
Now of course there are a few exceptions but Grumpy Cat, Jesus and dogs playing poker aside, art is meant to be original.
Come on, people! Let’s get creative about the things we hang. After all, we each lead such unique lives and our art should tell that story.
1. Make your favorite quote into art.
Words can be worth a thousand pictures. In college I bought a canvas from a craft store for about 6 bucks, I painted the background gold and then used a bold emerald green to simply paint the words to one of my favorite quotes from literature on it.
It was a simple and unique way to incorporate my love of words into décor.
