A stylish guide to positive affirmation art

I’ll be honest, not all ‘positivequotes get me motivated. But every now and then one resonates with me. And when it does I am a force to be reckoned with! It is funny how a few words change your state of mind, your attitude and your energy. So when those magic words come along and strike truth within you, I say embrace them!

There are some amazing artists that use this power with their art. Quote posters are also all the rage and I can see why. Not only are they are an inexpensive form of art but they also look fun and create a positive atmosphere for you and your guests. They look edgy whether you choose to frame them or stick them directly onto a wall.

So what should you look for when shopping for quote art? My best advice is think of it as a strong style statement. This statement can either be made through stark simplicity (think bold typography and a monochrome palette) or through a burst of vibrant colour and graphics.  Wishy-washy isn’t the way to go with quote art.

Below is a mood board featuring some of my favourite quote art. Try placing them in areas you need motivation most, such as a study where you can be prone to procrastination or in your bedroom to help you start your day with a burst of inspiration.
