The 10 Best Free Printables for Raising Optimistic Kids

I'm no interior designer. But I like to think I have a unique and awesome sense of style. I feel so comfortable in a space that reflects what matters to me and inspires me to keep learning. I want our children to feel motivated, inspired, and successful. I'm always on the lookout for ways to include design in our home that encourages optimism.

We moved into our first house about a year and a half ago. I've been happy lately with how my contemporary rustically elegant vision for our humble abode is evolving. 

I'm loving being able to express my creativity through my decor. So, the next project I'm taking on is a motivational mural wall in our hallway.


I've put together links to my favorite printable wall art I'll be using. I hope you'll find some that mesh with your style and be inspired to tap into your inner interior decorator. I'm choosing our hallway but a motivational wall display would also be great in a playroom, kids' room, or wherever your family works on schoolwork.

I'd love to see what you come up with using these fun resources!

In fact, I sense an upcoming Instagram challenge to display our final masterpieces! Stay tuned!

Without further ado. Here are some of the best optimistic printable wall art designs out there.
