Once you have moved into a new home the first thing you might want to do is paint the walls. After the paint dries, however, you’re left with bare walls. You’ll need to find some great pieces to fill up that wall space. You don’t want to choose just anything to hang on your walls. Here’s some tips to help you find the perfect artwork for your home. 



Find What You Love


You shouldn’t base your art purchases solely on value. If you like something and it inspires you, you should buy it! Anything that you will enjoy looking at in your home each day should be a part of it.  


There’s More Than One Kind Of Art


You don’t need to fill wall space with all pictures or paintings. You can choose from a variety of types of artwork. From sculptures to photographs to canvas art, by using a variety of pieces, you’ll add layers of depth to every room of your home.


Shop Around


There’s so many places to buy art. From local shops and vendors to wider selections in common retail stores, there’s plenty of art to choose from. Find pieces to help you express yourself and keep good vibes flowing throughout your home. 


Find The Right Size


You’ll need to measure the dimensions of your walls and bring a photo of the room you’re trying to decorate with you to the art stores. This will make it easier to help you envision what the art will look like in your home.  


Keyword: Focal Point


The most important thing to determine in decorating any room is to find the focal point. You will either need to find a central piece for the room, or find some pieces to complement what’s already there. The design elements of the room need to be spaced accordingly in order to help you avoid a cluttered room.  


What’s Your Color Scheme? 


You may want to choose your art based on its “wow” factor. Everything has a color within a room, and this will be one element in choosing your artwork as well. You’ll need to think of everything from the wall color to the throw pillows. Art that is within the same shades of the room can work well, but sometimes you need something that gives the room a bit more “pop.” 


What’s In The Picture?


You don’t want to buy a picture of a palm tree if the room has a country theme! Consider the theme and mood of a piece of art in order to have it complement your room.


Most of all, shopping for art should be fun! Find pieces you love. You can even use what you already have. As long as it inspires you and won’t add clutter, you should keep the art in your home.

You may be considering adding a new member to your family: a dog. But you may also be struggling with whether or not to get a puppy or adopt an adult dog. Both a puppy and a dog are a large responsibility and an adjustment to your life. Let’s take a look at what to consider before you make that decision. Rescue or Full-Bred: Rescuing an animal is one of the most amazing things that you can do in life. You are saving a life. If you are someone who wants to change a dog’s life then rescuing is the way to go. Most of the time though, shelters do not have puppies. Depending on the shelters you are looking into adopting from there could be puppies or there could be dogs of all ages. No matter the age, adoption is making a difference in that dog’s life. But be prepared to likely adopt an older dog. But also be prepared to put in work. Often times these dogs have been tormented. They may be sad, skittish, and standoffish. Or they may be perfectly happy. Either way, its important to be prepared. If you really want a puppy then you will likely be interested in full-bred. But be ready to pay the price, as full-bred puppies don’t come cheap. You may have to search the U.S. for a breeder that breeds the type of puppy you want. It’s important that you look into any and all breeders that you are considering and find out their reputation. Only buy a puppy from a breeder that is reputable. Time: Both puppies and dogs require your time, effort and attention, but puppies require much more. If you really want a puppy then it’s essential to make sure that you have the time to give. Puppies require more vet visits, more love, more attention, and more work. They require training by either you or a professional— which are both time consuming. When adopting an older dog these things have already been dealt with (most of the time). If you are looking for a little less work to begin with then adopting an older dog is the best option for you. But, regardless of age, your dog will always require your time. If you don’t have an adequate amount of time to give then a dog may not be the best option for you. Regardless of whether you get a puppy or a dog, it’s vital that you are prepared for what’s in store. A dog is a member of your family and should be treated as such. Being prepared will make the transition to having a dog that much easier.
