3 Tips on Decorating With Inspirational Quotes
Showcase your favorite phrases and verses with these styling must-dos
These days, it’s easy to get a shot of inspiration: just visit your favorite home store, grab a framed inspirational quote, and you’re done! Even department stores abound in wall art showcasing beautiful typography spelling out motivational phrases.
If you love displaying your favorite motivational quotes at home, here are easy decorating tips to keep in mind:
Try no frames
If you want to be more carefree when displaying quotes, just ditch the frames and simply stick the sheets to a wall (your work area is the best place so you get a regular dose of motivation when cramming for deadlines!).
Prioritize what you want
To keep your wall from getting cluttered, maintain only a handful of quotes, and just replace some with new ones you fancy. Don’t stick too many quotes on your wall which you don’t necessarily need!
Create your own
If you’re feeling crafty, why not write one or two of your own? Have them framed, hang them on a wall, and you have your own written ray of sunshine at home!
