For a lot of us, the art we want is a long way away from the art we can actually afford. Sherry and John Petersik, the creative couple behind Young House Love
, came up with this super simple, super cheap temporary solution to add some much needed color to their living room until they can do something they really love.
They bought 12x12 scrapbook paper in colors pulled from their "inspiration napkin" and $5 later had a wall of color that looks good enough to be a permanent part of the room. If you're looking for something a little less simple, you could just as easily create this look with patterned paper but I love the clean and bright look of the solid colors.
