Happy people have a few things in common, studies have found – some of these things transcend to their similarities within their homes!
You may have one in your house, lurking in your living room, or looming in the hall – the big, blank wall with nothing on it. What do you do?
For my first DIY project this year, I wanted to add some visual interest to my 2-year-old’s bedroom. I fell in love with this wilderness-campy aesthetic and while searching for inspiration via Pinterest, I came across this:

Your kids will certainly grow, but you may not always be in the same house as they make their journey into young adulthood. The new-old trend of marking one's young one’s height on the wall has reared its nostalgic head, but more DIY.
While paint is sometimes preferred, it can be kind of boring when you want to incorporate lots of colors into a room, which brings us to wallpaper.
Pictures are okay, but there are only so many ways you can arrange baby pics, wedding montages, and family fandangos on your walls before it gets a little tired.
Whether you’re creating an interest wall or a faux-wallpaper effect, stenciling might be the way to go for you. The possibilities with stenciling are pretty much limitless, if you have the time and patience, and a hook up on some great stencils.
Like many other home trends (shag carpet and lava lamps, to name a few) wood paneling might still be part of your present-day design scheme. It doesn’t have to be!
Whether you just want an accent wall or you are going for a lofty-look through your entire living room, you can have the vintage vibes of an exposed brick wall, even if your home isn’t made of brick. How? Faux brick, or brick veneer.
