It’s common to see a ‘Live, Love, Laugh’ wall art piece at popular craft and home décor stores. You’ll even see them in big chain stores down the craft and decorative aisles. However, the homey feel of the famous slogan feels pretty played out, and some have even taken to mocking it on social media. The saying seems to have put a negative spin on inspirational wall art. Believe it or not, there are ways to incorporate inspirational wall art without looking tacky.
Drop the Live, Love, Laugh, and Other Similar Quotes
The generational divide draws the line on whether to Live, Love, and Laugh or not. While millennials and Gen Z may gravitate towards inspirational wall arts like:
• Mid-century furniture
• Mismatched plants
Older folks love inspirational wall art, especially the controversial “Live, Laugh, Love” slogan. It comes down to your taste, but if you don’t want a “grandma’s” home, you should probably stay away from this well-known phrase.
Opt for Unique Quotes and Art
The old triple L quote is also seen as a cliché these days. Instead of searching for something you see everywhere, try searching for unique quotes you haven’t seen in homes. This task may require an Internet-heavy search, but you would be surprised at what you can find in your local stores. You can even find pieces with inspirational movie quotes or song lyrics.
The same can be said for inspirational artwork. Find something that really speaks to you and pumps you up when you look at it. Something inspiring can take many forms, such as:
• A nature-inspired piece
• An interesting pattern
• Beautiful artwork of people
• Artwork centered around your hobby or profession
This small list is just a few ideas to get you started. You don’t have to follow it. Go in a completely different direction if you want to. Let your creativity flow and look into what type of inspirational wall art you would like in your home.
There are many places to find unique inspirational wall art. It may take some digging to find exactly what you are looking for, but the search is half the fun. By all means, use the Internet, but don’t count out the local stores unique to your area. You would be amazed at what you can find in antique shops and small independent general stores.
