Many people will empathize with me, I hate painting walls, it's tedious, impossible to pick the perfect color and painters tape never really works. Also, I don't like spending the money or time to paint the walls since we tend to move every 3 years with the military. A piece of art is a great way to add a pop of color and will probably attract more attention than the color of your walls. You can change out art pieces as you please and very importantly move the art pieces with you! So rather than painting the walls, spend the money saved on a piece of artwork. It's a great way to add color to a space without the commitment.
Take a look at the pictures and see what your eye is drawn to... the art or the wall color?
