Say What You Want to Say With a Quote Wall Art

A quote wall art can be a great way to brighten up your room and add personal flair. It allows you to say precisely what you want, whether it's something motivational or just a lovely saying.

Define the space

You will want to define the space. This is a big decision and one that you should make with care. There are many factors to take into account when choosing a wall for your quote canvas print:

  • Where will you be looking when you walk through the door? What do you see as soon as you enter your home or office? Do you want your quote wall canvas print to show as soon as someone enters the door?
  • Where do most people gather in your house? Is there a room where everyone gathers at once or does the main gathering area change depending on who’s in town that week (or day)? This could be an essential consideration for choosing your quote wall. The most visible wall probably isn't going to change often!

Choose words or sayings

A wall art quotes are an excellent way to say what you want to say in a big, bold way. With this project, you can pick words or phrases that inspire and motivate you, uplift spirits and offer comfort during difficult times. 

Here's how it works:

  • Choose words or sayings that are meaningful to you
  • Choose inspirational phrases for a positive message of hope
  • Pick motivational quotes for inspiration
  • Choose uplifting words for encouragement

At Tailored Canvases, we have a selection of wall decor quotes prints with pre-selected quotes, but you can also have them personalized if you have something you want to say through canvas prints.

Work with a theme

When you decide to decorate a room or office with quotes, choosing a theme for your wall art can be helpful. A theme will help you narrow down the artwork and ensure that it all fits together in the space.

Decide on a style and then find pieces of artwork that fit it. 

For example, if you have an industrial-style home office with exposed brick walls and lots of metal details, try using graphic black-and-white prints of inspirational quotes as your main decoration. Or, if you're working with reclaimed wood furniture in an artsy living room, try adding some colorful paintings printed on canvas paper by local artists—they'll add an unexpected twist without overpowering the other elements in the space!

Emphasize the look with color

To set your wall art signs apart, use color to add drama and impact. 

First, choose a color palette that matches the look you want to achieve. A basic rule of thumb is that colors should be used in pairs or groups of three, with one primary focal point color and two supporting colors on either side. 

The idea behind this is that if the colors are too similar, they’ll blend and look muddy while using too many colors will make your piece feel disorganized.

If you’re still unsure how to choose colors, try using a color wheel! Color wheels provide visual representations of what complementary (opposite) colors are next to each other on the spectrum; analogous (adjacent) hues are shown by lines crossing through each other; triadic intersections represent three unrelated hues placed together, and split complements have both warm and cool shades combined in one space.

Try rotating themes

Rotation is a great way to keep things fresh, so even if you love the look of your quote canvas prints, it’s worth thinking about rotating the theme. 

Try changing out the quote or saying every few months and see how that changes the feel of your space. You can also rotate themes by changing up the colors—maybe one month you have black and white quotes on the walls, and then next month you go with bright colors like red and blue. 

If rotation isn't an option for you or if you don't want to change things up too much, try mixing in different types of art pieces for some variety. A wood sign or framed print might be a good alternative if you want something different than wallpaper but don't want to deal with paint!

With the right words, you can create a motivational, joyful, and warm space.

Whether decorating a nursery or a classroom, the right words can help set the mood. 

Whether they remind you of your favorite song lyrics, Shakespearean sayings, or phrases from childhood, they'll bring life and warmth to any space.

The best quotes are those that resonate with you—whether they're funny, inspirational, or simply make you smile. The point is not just to fill up space on your wall but to create an environment where every visitor can feel comfortable and at home. 

If a quote doesn't feel like it belongs on your wall, don't use it! 

If nothing else helps guide you through this process (and we hope our previous tips have), just trust yourself; decorating should reflect who you are as much as possible.
