The Power of Color and Inspirational Wall Decor to Set Positive Vibes

“From an interior designer’s standpoint, colors are used to alter perception –either to make a room look larger, cleaner, and funkier, or making it feel cooler or warmer. Using color as a tool to inspire or set a mood can be as effective as using decorative accents for the home’s inspirational wall decoration that create an intended emotional atmosphere in the room.

An interior designer will use color as well to make ceilings look higher or lower, or a space to feel dynamic or calm. Warm colors like yellow, red or orange tend to pull a wall towards the eye, making a large room appear smaller and more compact. For a range of mood-setting inspirational décor and accents, check out your local home décor stores or browse through reputable online stores, such as Quintessence Creations.”

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.

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.
