Backyard Wonderland: Creating a Kids Play Space In Your Backyard

Having children made me look at my home's backyard from a whole new perspective. As my little ones started walking, I began to see how I could turn my backyard into a playground that was safe and secure for them to play. After spending a lot of time researching the safety and stability of the play structures and materials that were out there, I built a play area that's secure and fun for my kids. I created this site to share all of the ideas that I had as well as some other things I've found over the years to help other parents create the perfect play space to bring the family together at home.

3 Tips For Choosing The Most Right (And Elegant) Wall Art For Your Needs

Although elegant has been defined in several different ways by merriam-webster.com, one of the definitions in question is particularly appropriate when referring to the way you might decorate your home. Specifically, it mentions tasteful richness for the appearance of design and decoration. If that is the type of statement you would like your elegant wall art to make, you will undoubtedly benefit from the information shared in the following sections.

#1-Choose A Theme

Unless you favor the eclectic appeal of a home that features different themes, colors, etc. from one room to the next, it is a good idea to choose one solid idea and carry it throughout the property. Doing so can also make choosing your decorations and art easier, especially if you do not consider yourself to be very creative.

Fortunately, that doesn't mean that each room needs to be the same. For instance, if you find the color blue to be soothing and appealing, you can feature that color as the dominant shade in all of your wall art. In addition, you can then choose art that features blue, particularly if you have a favorite artist and you would vie to feature those prints, photos, etc. in a tasteful manner.  

#2-Choose The Right Frames

Another piece of advice to consider involves choosing the most appropriate frames for your needs. For example, it is often better to choose an unadorned frame in lieu of choosing several plain options. Otherwise, there is an excellent chance that people will be more attracted to the frame and its memorable construction than they are of the art itself.     

In addition, the use of multiple frames on your wall can often become overwhelming to the eye, if those frames are ornate, large, etc.   

#3-Don't Choose Art That Is Trendy, Seasonal, Etc. Unless you Want to Redo The Wall Decor Often

Sadly, while some art is classic and never goes out of style, other examples can quickly become dated. That might be due to the colors within the art, its subject matter or even the size of the unit. Therefore, it is often more helpful to choose classic work that can stand the test of time, instead of what might be less expensive art work that soon makes a different statement to visitors than the one you actually hope for.

In conclusion, elegant wall sets expectations for all of your guests, even if your home is quite modest. As a result, when you want your home to have a classy, yet understated statement throughout, it will be very helpful to make use of the advice shared above.
