If you want to add a touch of art to your home, it doesn’t have to be difficult. Art can be found just about anywhere; you can incorporate it into your decor subtly, or you can call out your love for artistic creations loudly and proudly. Below, tips on how to turn your home into a space that seems fun, tasteful and creative.
Some people believe that quilts work best for older people, but this doesn’t have to be the case. If you want art in your home, you can’t go wrong with a quilt. It’s traditional for a quilt to feature colorful, intricate designs. You can find a quilt in just about any color or size. Think about what you like, and you may find a quilt that fits your needs. You can buy a quilt at a craft store, an antique store, or you can make one yourself, or with the help of a few friends. e My mother-in-law made us a beautiful quilt for our wedding. It’s too pretty to use, but just imagine what that could do to a boring wall! I may have found my next home décor project! :)
If quilts do not match your personality, it’s an obvious but nonetheless brilliant idea to consider framed art. People love a piece of artwork that they can hang in a living room or a bedroom. Hanging art in your living room can start a conversation; it can even liven up an otherwise dull space. Get artwork from a local art event! If this isn’t an option, create something with items that you have around the home. You can also purchase something at prints and poster stores. Some art hangings can be purchased for a remarkably low price, which is helpful if you’re on a tight budget.

When you’re on vacation, chances are high that you think about sending postcards to loved ones. Postcards showcase where you are; people can see a hotel, pool, or other destination. If you go to a museum or art gallery, it is also possible to buy a postcard featuring an art reprint. Postcards do not cost a lot of money; you can purchase more than one if you wish. Make it fun; buy several postcards and create a collage to place on a wall. People may ask you about the artwork, and you can enlighten them.

Figurines are statuettes: you can purchase a representation of a larger sculpture. Place a figurine on a table; put one outside of your front door if it is large enough. Do not be afraid to try something different. Your house will be the talk of the area if you choose something exciting.
