Too often in interior design, we see wall art treated as an afterthought. It’s what gets dealt with last, long after the final coat of paint has dried on the walls and all of the furniture has been artfully arranged, if it gets dealt with at all.
But, we’re here to argue that by relegating wall art to the side lines, you’re missing out on an amazing design opportunity. When chosen thoughtfully, the right wall art can provide for the entire room. Dare we say it, but we think wall art matters most in interior design.
However, if you’re a little nervous to give wall art such a prominent role in your design plans, don’t worry. Use this post as a guide on how to accurately choose pieces that will mesh with your existing space and you will have a harmonious interior.
It Provides An Instant Color Palette
Choosing a color palette can be one of the most daunting facets of designing your interiors. The amount of varying shades of paint that are available at your local home improvement store can seem absolutely endless.

We spent Thanksgiving with family in Idaho, and my super awesome sister-in-law showed me how to make these ginormous paper snowflakes in just a few easy steps. I could barely contain my excitement when I learned how to make these, and I couldn’t wait to get back home and share this with all of you! I have a small apartment so I only made 3 snowflakes, but if you had a house these snowflakes would make for amazing porch decorations! Talk about Holiday curb envy!
So the first thing I did after getting back was hit my local Michael’s for supplies (they had a sale, so I was in heaven, and each paper was only 25 cents)! You will need six 12 x 12 sheets of paper to make one snowflake so stock up. I would also suggest looking for paper that is double sided or has a nice contrasting color. I found that a lot of scrapbook paper is not dual-sided, and that will just not do for this craft (unless you like to mix patterns and solids, in which case go for it). Personally, I need a little Holiday glitz in my life, so I went with sparkly paper. The back-sides of the paper are the same color but in matte, so it all looks on point!
What you will need:
6 – 12 x 12 sheets of paper for 1 snowflake
1 – stapler
1 – bone paper folder (optional)
Make these Holiday decorations in a few easy steps!
First, fold the paper over into a triangle (pretty side facing out)
Next, fold the triangle over again into a smaller triangle. I used a bone folder to get a nice even crease, but it’s not mandatory
Below are the measurements, however, after I got a good idea of these measurements I ended up eyeballing where to cut, and it turned out just fine
You will need to make 4 diagonal cuts, 1 inch apart starting from the bottom on the right-hand side. The only thing that is absolutely IMPERATIVE is that you must cut upward from the side that is folded over. Imagine, if this were a book, then you would be making your cuts on the side of the binding not the pages. Also, make sure to cut up to 1/2 inch from the edge on the left.
Open up your triangle, and staple together the two sides in the center. Now, TURN OVER the entire piece of paper and staple the next two sides on that side. Continue alternating sides until you are done
Here is the final piece! You could just string up one piece of the snowflake and be totally done (look how lovely it looks on it’s own). But we’re on a mission here people! So prepare five more pieces!
Once you have 6 pieces complete you will need to connect and staple them all together
I would suggest connecting the sides that have 3 strips with the sides that have 2 strips. I also found that it’s best to connect three pieces together, then connect those to another set of three. But do whatever works for you – don’t stress over it, it’s just a paper snowflake 🙂
So that the snowflake keeps it’s shape, you will also need to staple the center all together
String them up or hang them on nails, as I did
Please excuse the bare nakedness of my living room. I just cleared out all the fall foliage and pumpkins, and I’m barely getting started with Christmas decorating!
What could be more exciting than decorating a bedroom with your creative youngsters? Although you may not be able to adopt all of their ideas (chocolate fountains and real life petting zoos are probably off the table), it’s definitely possible to incorporate their tastes and preferences into a design that parents and kids alike can enjoy. This post looks at several childhood bedrooms that go beyond everyday expectations. After you check out the incredible photos below, make sure to check out this list of kid’s room wall decor to enhance your scrapbook of ideas.
