8 Instant Wall Upgrades To Spruce Up Your Home
There’s something about unadorned walls that feels very Freshman Year. The only thing worse? Hanging artwork that just doesn’t do it for you, which is a bit like having a roommate you can’t escape. Why look at something for that long if you’re not totally in love? To help beautify lackluster walls, we put together our favorite instant upgrades from the SwearBy community. BYO hammer and nails.
Samsung 43" Class The Frame QLED Smart 4K UHD TV
“While this is a great, slim smart television on its own, my favorite feature is the fact that it turns into a piece of art when not in use. No more big black hole on the wall! You can swap out the frame to match your existing decor, choose to have a mat around the artwork or not, and even upload your own art or photography.”—Stephanie Sisco
CB2 Lush Painting + Reviews
“The blues and greens in this piece of art are so vibrant and gorgeous. I purchased it for my living room, and it made the entire room come to life. (The sofa is black leather, accent chairs are a turquoise-y hue, rug is gray, with lots of wood and marble accents, as well as houseplants.) It’s exquisite and looks much more expensive than it actually is.”—Heather Morgan Shott
Posteritati Movie Poster Gallery
“I like to find uncommon vintage posters for rooms that are more casual or don’t quite merit an art investment. Posteriati has a huge selection. I like their art deco posters from Europe. I bought a 70’s Jaws poster from the Czech Republic from them ages ago and it’s still one of my favorite pieces.”—Amalia Graziani
Juniper Print Shop
“Choose from a beautiful selection of prints ranging in size from 16×20 to 55×79 and Juniper Print Studio will ship them to you on their magic paper. It’s a paper-vinyl hybrid with a gorgeous, chalky matte finish that can be used with or without glass. I purchased a 16×20 of the ‘Naomi’ print and it looks like an original watercolor. I can’t wait to order more. *Bonus – the larger sizes are made to fit the largest IKEA frames, giving you large statement art for your home at a great price!”—Jennings Ross
Primitives by Kathy Woven Wall Hanging Natural Fiber Art Tassel
“I needed something to accent our living room wall and loved the idea of a natural fiber wall hanging. Some of these can get really pricey but I was able to find this one on amazon. The colors and unique textures was just what I was looking for along with the smaller size. These hangings come in a variety of colors and patterns and I was pleased with the quality when it arrived. Great decor addition for a reasonable price.”—Caitlin Gutoski
