  1. Hang Colorful Artwork

My primary rule for decorating is to have at least one work of art up in each room.  It’s a fun way to add color to a room and also show your personality based on your art taste.  Here are some wall art options from Jaypore to get you started on a fabulous gallery wall!  Take care to select artwork you really enjoy, as you’ll find that it will instantly be a focal point in your room.  It’s easy to see how wall artwork can be an attractive focal point from the lovely room designs above, both featuring stunning wall art. 

Jaypore has so many works of art to match your personal style! Here are just a few (all shown above):

1. Paisley Magenta Sanjhi Wall Art

2. Raag Ragini Miniature Painting

3. Tree Bird Gondh Painting By Rajendra Shyam

4. Blue Madhubani Folk Art Painting

5. Puppets Dancing Framed Painting

6. Kerala Series – Limited Edition, M.F. Husain Signed Serigraphs

2.  Decorate with the natural beauty of plants & flowers!

Bring the outdoors inside with the natural beauty of plants and flowers!  Just take a look at the impact colorful plants have on these beautiful rooms below! If you love a do-it yourself project, you may just want to try your hand at creating the brightly colored, branch and floral headboard featured here. Simply tie strings of flowers onto a large sized branch and then adhere the branch to the wall above your bed.  A unique a special feature for the nature lover and DIY crafter!  

If you don’t have a green thumb try planting cactus in brightly colored flower pots. Cactus is easy to care for, so a great houseplant choice for beginners, and its rich green color is sure to add to your space!  Not feeling like trying your hand at gardening? Don’t foget you can simply pick up some richly hued flowers and greenery at the market and place them in vases around your home.  The more the merrier and don’t be afraid to mix and match flower colors!

3. Add an Accent Wall

Creating an accent wall is a fun way to add color to your space.  Try pulling out one of the brighter colors in your décor and use that color for your accent wall.  Even if it’s an especially bright color, using it on only one wall will generally be the perfect touch.  If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, you can create a more graphic wall accent with wallpaper, as seen above.  Either way, you will have made a great addition to your home.
