Whether you’ve just moved into your home or apartment, or you’ve been living there for years, we’d bet that there is at least one bare wall in need of some attention and art, but where do you even begin? Not everyone is an aficianado, nor do they have endless budgets for special pieces, so here are some of our favorite resources for print-shopping, along with specific standouts (both popular and more unique). We’re sure you’ll find at least one that you love (or, at least, more that you can create a gallery from).
We love the quirky offerings from this small Manhattan studio, especially the alphabet prints by city. Any ex-New Yorker will find humor in this NYC tribute.
A good saying is always worth showcasing, especially if it is a personal mantra. We like them even more when they’re done in a stylish way so we can happily display them on our walls, like this one that says, “Whatever will be, will be.”
Customized prints and art are all the rage, especially when depicting family (they are the new family photo) or cozy vibe in a specific room. The retro vibe is quirky, but the sentiment is lovely and timeles. Definitely check out all of the artists on Etsy, like Clare Vacha, whose work is pictured here.
Hundreds and hundreds of prints can be found framed or not at allposters.com. We love a good vintage ad or flier, but also prefer something a little offbeat, like this one for Labrador Biscuits. Find other options and different colors to suit your personality on this site, or create a cluster of three or four for a gallery wall.
We love the idea of hanging this above a small bar, in a kitchen, or a fun living space. It is sure to add a pop of color and whimsy to any room. Match it with other more subtle prints in similar frames for a gallery wall that pops.
Looking for something really modern and colorful? Look no further. This Untitled (b) by Kindah Khalidy is abstract and colorful enough that you can hang it on its own or pair it with prints in similar colors or styles for a collage.
