Remember those adorably messy family portraits you drew as a child? How about the topsy-turvy photo collage board you shared with your roommate? These artworks were cute and sentimental, but also best reserved for more youthful spaces. Now that you're all grown up, it's time to transform that meaningful personalization into wall art that's elegant and stylish.

Take a cue from these personalized wall decor ideas that are display-worthy in your own home or gift-worthy to a loved one.

 

1. This is us

Here's a customized family piece that you'll be proud to show your guests. The beautiful calligraphy and the rustic, wood-like background complement your family name and the names of all its members. A perfect piece for your living room!

 

2. Picture-perfect

What's more personal than a photograph? Transform a regular photo into a true work of art by having it rendered into a custom portrait. Many artists out there can create stunning artwork featuring you, your loved ones, or even your pets.

 

3. Dates of a lifetime

This sweet yet subtle canvas print is a chic alternative to traditional wedding photo galleries. It gorgeously immortalizes the important dates of your life together as a couple in eye-pleasing pastel hues. It's a lovely sight in your bedroom or anywhere else in your home.

 

4. M is for Monogram

A quick and foolproof idea for a classy wall accent? All you need is a wooden monogram of your initial (or initials). Hang it above your bed, your desk, your mantel, your sofa, or right outside your door.

 

5. Infinite bond

The infinity symbol is a classic representation of a couple's lasting promise. Use this symbol as an artistic element, add both names of husband and wife, plus the date of the wedding, and you've got this wall art that's graceful and utterly personal.

 

6. Tie the knot

Speaking of wedding-themed decor, this canvas print is an absolute picture of 'tying the knot.' The rustic feel of this piece goes well with the calligraphy names of husband and wife.

 

7. Strung together

String art is just like drawing or sketching -- only, with strings! You can try this craft at home by following the many DIY tutorials available, or you can have one custom-made by an artist.

 

8. Luck of the Irish

Whether or not your family has roots in Ireland, this made-to-order wall art would make a nice addition to your living room, dining room, or den. The soothing green hues of this piece make the intricate typography stand out -- and make your family name look dashing!
