As a child, we learn that drawing on the walls is a big no-no in our parents' home. Growing up, we slowly earn the privilege to stick up posters and hang up picture frames in our rooms, which help to showcase our interests and personalities to the rest of the world. When we turn into young adults, we may move out of our childhood home and into a dormitory or a rented apartment, which still restricts us from decorating our walls the way that we truly want to.
Finally, one day, we become independent adults with our own homes - with no one to tell us what we can or cannot do to the interior. Now, you can finally embellish your walls with whatever you want - from tasteful artwork to crazy wall decor. Your walls are your canvas, and the possibilities are limitless.
