Here is some creative inspiration on how to turn your drab walls into a creative expression!
There is a growing movement of artists that collect those free paint swatches from the local hardware store and put them to use creating beautiful and bright collages. Scott Pendergast found a unique new function for these freebies by coating a wall in his bedroom. I love the way he created a gradient across the wall…and so well spaced! I wouldn’t say it is easier than painting but it is worth the trouble. If you don’t feel right taking off with Home Depot’s supplies, design*sponge suggests contacting the paint department to see if they can order in a custom selection of swatches for a small fee.
These incredibly unusual wall paper designs are created by a Design company in Weimar, Germany. Surrealien takes into account door frames, windows, plugs, switches and wall hangings to custom warp the pattern in a wallpaper of your choice. The results are impressive!

This cool Calendar wallpaper allows you to stand back and absorb an entire year of activities and events. I really love this idea. At the moment it is just a concept by designer Christiaan Postma in Stockholm, Sweeden. I would hope that the final product allows you to wipe the slate clean and start fresh every year! What a fun idea!
