Why Purchase Art?

Art has existed for as long as man has. From cave wall paintings, to hieroglyphs, to Romantic canvasses, to postmodern splatters, visual art has always been created by humans who want to express themselves when words do not suffice.

People also love to collect and display art as much as they love to create them, with famous paintings by artists like Van Gogh and Picasso selling for millions of dollars. Some might wonder why people would spend such an exorbitant amount of money for a painting, but there are reasons why different individuals keep inspirational wall decorations:

  1. Interior Design. A painting can greatly alter the appearance of a specific room. A carefully chosen piece can add personality to a certain space. Good purchases can make a middle-income family’s home feel like a millionaire’s.

  2. Abundance of Art. There are a lot of artworks that are constantly created around the world, and one of them is bound to fit right inside someone’s home.

  3. Relaxation. Looking at visual art that one finds beautiful enables the brain to release a pheromone that is also present when one is in love. Looking at art that one loves helps one to relax, given the hustle and bustle of modern-day living.

Of course, one does not need to purchase classical or monumental works to enjoy such benefits. Any painting, sculpture, or decorative print can give a person inspiration and joy, as long as he or she chooses artwork with personal meaning.

Inspirational Wall Decoration and its Effect on a Child’s Development

“Most of us instinctually know that art is important for our children; we simply believe it’s important because we’ve seen our children deeply involved in art. But beyond what we feel and believe, there is much factual information about why art is important in our children’s development that is both interesting and helpful to know. Creating art expands a child’s ability to interact with the world around them, and provides a new set of skills for self-expression and communication. Not only does art help to develop the right side of the brain, it also cultivates important skills that benefit a child’s development.
The activity of art creation, according to the article, will rear the child into developing life skills, such as communication skills, social skills, and fine motor skills. This makes the presence of art in a household, from art materials to meaningful and inspirational wall decor, conducive to a child’s development.
Children are naturally curious, according Dr. Bruce Duncan

DIY Wall Decor Idea for Newlyweds

It’s been months since you’ve moved to your new place and your walls are still as bare ever. Staring at the blank walls gives you designer’s itch, but you think the money will be better spent elsewhere. Don’t put off interior decorating anymore! There are a few DIY wall décor ideas that are both affordable and beautiful.

If you received one too many sets of china for your wedding, chances are they’re still sitting around unused. Unless you plan to regularly host fancy dinners in order to use them, why not sacrifice one set as wall décor? You can buy disc hangers and arrange the plates in symmetrical or asymmetrical patterns that will be a treat to the eye.

You can also re-purpose any old window into a vintage picture frame. Just get reprints of your wedding pictures and re-size them to fit the individual panes. Secure the pictures with scotch tape and hang the window-cum-picture frame on the wall.

Lastly, if an interesting fabric design catches your eye, you can buy a few yards of it and turn it into wall décor.  Ask your new hubby to cut a piece of plywood, wrap the cloth around it, staple down the loose ends at the back, and voila—textured wall decor. (Pro-tip: You can also use a Styrofoam board if hubby isn’t too handy with power tools.)

Getting wall decorations doesn’t have to be bank-breaking. Remember, blank walls are blank canvasses that you can make interesting with a little creativity.

Staying Positive with Solid Inspirational Wall Decor

Staying positive is a skill you develop and there are simple things you can do to strengthen your positivity muscles. For starters, just smile. Smiling naturally releases tension in the body and science backs this up: frowning uses more muscles than smiling

Another simple tip is to say “Thank You.” Doing so forces you to focus on things you are grateful for, rather than dwelling on negative thoughts. Surrounding yourself with positive reminders, like inspirational wall décor motifs, can also boost your mood, especially at home.

Happiness is a habit and positivity is key to it. While it’s hard to see the upside during tough times, you can always choose how to respond to life’s difficulties. The next time you’re feeling down, why not smile or look at some inspirational wall decorations to keep yourself positive?

Drawing Inspiration from the Beauty of Nature

Growing up in the city, studying within the city, and working within the city can effectively distance someone from the wonderful world that is found where the paved roads end. Unfortunately, planning a trip outdoors or doing something such as taking a hike is almost impossible to pull off for any individual with work responsibilities. The solution then is to bring nature inside the home. While it may not be quite the same thing, artwork and decorations based on nature can work as wonderful additions for your home.

Beautifully executed inspirational wall decorations that draw from fanciful themes could certainly add a lot of life and stimulation to a room. Sylvan scenes derived from various cultures’ mythologies go a long way in making a home’s interior design interesting. Such artworks can have a profound effect on audiences, as they can transform the character of your home a great deal.

Carefully arrange these works of art inside your home to create your ideal design scheme. You can choose to spread them out across the rooms of your home; or maybe concentrate them in one area. You can even use these wall decorations to create design themes that will work to inspire you and beautify your home.
