    Welcome Devona!
    Since you say it's a new home - have you talked to the builder?

    Bowed walls usually come from framing that was wet when installed and as it dries starts to move around. Aside from cutting open sections of sheetrock to either plane down studs or replace studs there is not much you can do. Oh yeah. Big pictures work well too.

    DEVONA.. Now just what is any and all reasonable suggestions?

    Can we play with this ? OK I will be good. ( wellcome )

    Sometime if the framers are not crowning the wall stude the same way. this is what you get.

    You probley have one stud crowned up and the next crowned down.

    If you look at the complete building you will find this all over your home.
    Its part bad lumbber and bad instaltion.

    Best
