For many of us, the new year means not only recharging our minds and bodies but also rejuvenating our cherished dwellings. When you get right down to it, home is and should be a place of peace and tranquility. It should be a place that evokes the essence of how we are and who we strive to be.
As we move into 2014, lets take a look at some beautiful home decor ideas that will inspire a whole new outlook on life, love and family.
Designing a whole new look doesn’t mean shelling out big ca$h. Thanks to the internet, we can get inspired by both design professionals and DIY enthusiasts alike. Both interior designers and non-professionals will tell you that the best and cheapest way to reinvent your space is decorating with wall art. This is music to the ears for most of us who do not have the option or the means to start tearing down walls and buying new furniture.
Revisit Old Memories and Redecorate!
Sometimes the best way to show gratitude and joy for our current life is to pay tribute to treasured memories from our past. A terrific and simple way to do this is with canvas photo prints. All you need to do is go through your old family albums or digital photos and find the ones that make you smile and recall happy moments. Stretched canvas is also a great way to showcase your children’s artwork and transform them into gallery piece.
