DIY Inspirational Home Decor

I love inspirational home decor such as sayings, images and signs, and I have lots of them around our home. Uplifting home decor looks great, and also acts as a friendly reminder to be positive and appreciative. I hope you enJOY these inspirational home decor ideas as much as I do. Make your home a positive environment!

Inspirational words painted on a staircase

The Joy Is In The Process

This staircase painted by my friend, Mary, was my inspiration for this post. (Thank you, Mary!) I think it’s genius how she turned this space that is generally boring into something completely inspirational and decorative to boot!
Mary gives credit for her stair idea to her 98 year-old friend who had painted her basement window wells to make them more cheerful.  She painted a white background and filled it with flowers, and that inspired Mary to do something with her stairs that she planned to paint anyway.
Mary is also genius in recognizing the key to maximizing the joy:
Think process, not product.  The joy is in the process of living, trying, discovering, preferring.  The stairway process has given me many hours of joy, thinking about it, doodling, looking for supplies, buying supplies, considering, contemplating, erasing, painting over, reevaluating, etc. 
My friend, Joy, shared her inspirational home decor sign with me. I love how she uses vertical space that would otherwise be wasted. What a great reminder for her and her family each day, as well as being a great conversation starter with visitors.
Fun, Easy Alternatives from Amazon

DisclaimerDecorative signs are fun reminders. Consider placing a simple sign with a positive message on your nightstand so you see it as you drift off to sleep and again when you wake up in the morning.

 

Thank you to my friend, Marlene, who shared her “Good Food, Good Friends, Good Times” decor with me. Marlene is a wonderful hostess and she finds joy in cooking delicious meals for friends. Her sign makes her guests know they’re important to her. Again, perfect example of using vertical space that would otherwise lack interest.

  1. Love these ideas! Even one of these is a great way to add something fresh and new in my decor for spring. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Stenciling is a great idea. It’s easy to do and easy to paint over when you’re ready for something new. And yes, the pillows are fun! I have the black “enjoy the little things” with a bicycle. Easy and fun.

  2. That staircase is lovely! It’s good to have motivational quotes around us. They can really help turn around an awful moment. Great ideas here.

  3. Hey, these ideas are fantastic. Loved the Pillow stuff and the stairs one too. We can also try by adding all the spring palette colors on every stair to add more drama and make it attractive. Thanks for sharing them. Love <3
