Do you want all the color without any of the commitment? Do the words mauve and taupe make your head spin? We’ve been there. If you’re having trouble deciding between shades of green for an accent wall, here’s a fun way to add color to a room without a full paint job. This inexpensive modern wall art is made entirely of paint swatches. Simply visit a local hardware store to pick up some swatches and experiment with different color combinations. When you’ve found the perfect grouping, secure the paint chips to a piece of paper or cardboard with double-sided tape, and frame. Optional: You can pick up vinyl letters and numbers at most art supply stores to add a name or make a statement.

Sherry of Young House Love used recycled (bonus points) Ralph Lauren swatches to create paint chip wall art for her bedroom. She used browns, grays, blue-grays, light greens, creams and whites and arranged them from darkest to lightest. Looks great next to a little green dandelion print from Ikea.
