Inspirational Wall Decor You Can't Live Without

by PAPER MAVEN DELIGHTS / June 9, 2021

There’s a popular saying that “You are what you eat.” But what if you are also the things you are surrounded by?

When the COVID pandemic hit in 2020, a lot of us turned to our homes to find inspiration and solace. This wasn’t totally by choice. After all, there weren’t many places to go! Still, there was something soothing in getting reacquainted with our environments. Decluttering and redecording proved to be a great way to cope with big changes.

To top it off, many of us started working from home last year. This may be one lasting impact since many people predict working from home will become a more popular trend. As a result, our homes turned into a workspace, gym, childcare center, and more – all rolled into one! Spaces that once had only one function became layered with different uses.

Using inspirational quotes or inspiration wall decor to decorate your home can beautify your living space, no matter how you’re using it. A well-chosen quote can even help you refocus on the things that are important in life: a positive outlook.

When you wake up each morning surrounded by positivity, there’s no where to go but up.

Positive Mind, Positive Vibes, Positive Life

A positive mindset can color every aspect of yourself. Remind yourself that there’s power in positive vibes with Printable Zen Co’s Positive Mind Positive Vibes Positive Life print.

This boho-chic print has a retro feel, not to mention a positive vibe. The dusty rose color accentuates most wall colors, especially white or brown. You could also go with the orange color as well if your room needs a bigger pop of color.

This inspirational print would also make a great gift for the hippie couple in your life. We all know someone who needs to be reminded that a positive mind equals a positive life.
