Why do we decorate our homes? Why do we diligently go from store to store, wearing out our heels, in search of decorative items to place on our walls?
Many of us don’t even spend much time in our home, but still, we put much thought into what our private space will look like, because it changes the way we feel.
They way we feel when we’re at home, and the way we feel about our home are strongly affected by the experiences we have while there, at home. We all want to feel safe at our homes, so we have our locked doors and gates.
We want to feel cozy and comfortable in our space, so we change to our comfy clothes whenever we get home, and sit on our cozy sofas.
When you take a moment to think about your home, which sentiment is most dominant? Do you enjoy the atmosphere, the sounds and smells that come to mind?
To help us create our very own fortress of coziness, we decorate our home. We want our home to reflect who we are, our values and ideas. When our loved ones visit, we want them to feel comfortable while soaking in the essence of who we are.
Using our walls to express ourselves is an idea that’s found outside the home as well, and can be seen in colorful graffiti art and in our city’s architecture. Like those artists use the outside’s blanks to express themselves while filling a void, we do in our homes - we are the artists of our home, we fill the void, to make it express ourselves while looking beautiful.
There are many artistic ways of using your private space to express yourself. A common and very satisfying way of doing so is using wall art.

The OY license plate is such a wonderful piece of wall art. It’s colorful and fun to look at; the use of license plates makes it a sustainable declaration of environmental care, and the word OY, doesn’t it just say it all?

After getting this item, you’ll need to think hard about which room it’s going to be hung in, since it just works in so many spaces.
The God Bless You floating letters piece is probably what every nursery needs. We ask Hashem to protect our loved ones every day and at every age, but there’s something very protective about the way we want to encase our offspring. In addition to the daily measures we take to keep our young ones safe, we constantly ask the almighty to keep a close eye on them and keep them from harm. This colorful floating letters wall hanging displays excerpts from Birkat Kohanim, the priestly blessing, which is said in magnificent awe, while the entire synagogue closes their eyes and cover themselves in their Tallit. This momentous chant, meant to shade us with divine protection, is also said right after the Kiddush on Friday night, in a very special ritual. The parents place their hands on their child's head and say these words, to send them off to the new week with all the heavenly aid they can get.

The Hamsa is meaningful to us since it symbolizes protection and care. This wall art is a great combination between outstanding creativity and significance.
