There is no better way to add personal character to a room than with art. You don't have to spend a fortune to fill empty wall space with a touch of color and design. You can turn your Wimmer Communities apartment into a haven of customized, unique beauty with just a little imagination. Here are some ideas to get you on your way.

Be Creative With Fabric

Framed fabric art is not only affordable and easy to do yourself, but it can be as versatile and original as your own taste and style. With all the gorgeous patterns and graphics available, creating one-of-a-kind wall decor with fabric is too good an idea to pass up. An old frame from your local thrift shop along with any fabric that catches your eye is all you need to start. Find some simple instructions here.

You can also reinvent a common cork bulletin board with either burlap or fabric using decorative tacks. It's a whimsical way to display mementos and reminders with a touch of class.

Hang a Quilt or Blanket

Give large spaces on your wall an eye-catching treatment by hanging a favorite blanket or tapestry. A colorful vintage patchwork quilt or a bright, textured blanket will lend an interesting homespun vibe to your room. You can purchase quilt and blanket clamp hangers made for that purpose or use a dowel rod. Even powerful magnets might do the trick. Here are some ideas.

Supersize Your Favorite Photos

Bring your vacation or family photos to the forefront by displaying them on the wall. Your high-resolution photo keepsakes can be supersized at your neighborhood copy center. Adding your own large-scale photography to your room's decor is personalized art at its best. Black and white prints provide a dramatic flair while colors create vivid focus.

If you prefer to showcase your photos without the supersizing, there are numerous innovative ways to exhibit photographs of every size. Here are a few clever ideas sure to take your home decor to a whole new level.
