interior design of a living room

When you decorate your home, there are endless options for styles, vibes, and themes. At the same time, whatever direction you decide to head when it comes to your interior design, you may want to aim for something that truly reflects who you are as an individual and perhaps a family. In "The New Southern Style: The Interiors of a Lifestyle and Design Movement," via People, "Home Town" star Erin Napier explained, "We should let our homes be a little bit weird, like the people who live in them. I wish people wouldn’t worry so much about how other people are styling their homes. It removes the individualism, which is what makes home so comforting. You can really be you there, you know?" Napier said.

With that in mind, you might be inspired to go all out when adding accents to your living space that show off who you are and what you like. One way to embrace some wonderfully individualistic style in your abode is to put up arguably unusual wall art. Choosing the perfect artwork for your home may seem tricky, but it can be a simple and super-fun task if you let yourself pick pieces that pique your interest and make you smile. For instance, check out these fantastic examples of unusual works of wall art that will add a unique touch to your home.
