"This has been a difficult year for our family. Being together is a blessing and capturing our current city and family is important to remind us of where we were at this time in the future."
"My son and I made a custom, framed wall poster for my husband's birthday. I've ordered from Shutterfly before and knew the craftsmanship is wonderful, but when I opened the package the end results blew me away. It was so much better than my expectations. We absolutely love it."
"Love the canvas print of my family! You did an Excellent job of this canvas print. Thank You Very Much!"
"You turned our family portrait into a real masterpiece! I was a little hesitant to order it at first because there was no mention of the depth of the frame - and I wanted it to look magnificent on the wall. When our picture arrived - it was a beautiful 1 1/2" thick frame! And of course, the subjects are very near and dear to my heart! It was PERFECT!"
"I ordered this as a memorial for my cousin's aunt who recently passed. My cousin loved it. She just moved in to her new home (new homeowner) so, this was a sort of house warming/sympathy gift. I used her favorite photos of he aunt and a photo of her with her aunt and brother. She loved it and said it will be treasured forever. I had it delivered to her home so, I didn't actually see it myself. However, the photo she sent me of it looked great."
When you move into a new house, you get a fresh, clean slate with which to begin. Unfortunately, that also means you lose that sense of warmth and intimacy that comes along with time living in a space. Here are a few ways you can design those blank walls from bare to homey in no time.
Hang a piece of art created with your own images. It is as easy as ever to have your favorite family photos transferred onto a canvas. Choose images from a family photo shoot or candid moments that make you smile. Curate a group of shots from vacation and create photo collage canvas prints to bring the memory alive and featured throughout your home for constant enjoyment.
Who says walls need to be adorned by images only? Place your favorite saying above the sofa in a classic script via stencil, decal or canvas. A quote that welcomes visitors to your home works well in the foyer, and food-related sayings are a wonderful way to liven up the kitchen or dining areas. Be sure the font used is aesthetically pleasing, but still easy to read, and that you maintain a balance between word art and images.
White walls have their place in certain styles of décor, but many times a splash of color can make a huge difference in how a home feels. Bold colors work well in the kitchen and you could compliment the walls with these brown canvas prints. It is often better to stick with soothing, restful tones in the bedroom. For primary living spaces, choose a paint color that complements your furniture or brings out specific tones in flooring or textiles throughout the room.
Have a little fun in choosing your décor and be sure that whatever ends up on your walls reflects your personality and that of your family. You house will become a home in no time at all.
