Art Inspiration

Art Inspiration
It’s Monday, and we’ve survived! Cause for a celebration I think, and I have just the thing in mind. As of yet, we don’t have a moving date confirmed, so whilst I’d love to be buying furniture and curtains I’m settling for mostly online browsing whilst looking around for some art inspiration.

There’s some really great amazing resources and shops online, but this does mean that it can be difficult to know where to start. I always thought people who had “art” were grown ups with lots of money. Whilst that can be true, I’m starting to realise that just as there are lots of different types of art, there’s also lots of different price points.

Today I want to share some different ideas of where you can look to find art, as well as to share a few pieces from around our home. I’m not claiming to be an expert, but we’ve chosen things that make us smile and we truly love – which I don’t think can be a bad place to start!

As I mentioned, price points vary considerably, so if you’re looking for some free online resources, there are a few printables available on this site, but I’ve also found this incredible site: Mrs Fancee, which has links to 100’s of free printables.

If you’re looking to spend some money then one of my favourite places for unique art is Homesense. You can’t buy online unfortunately, but their in-store stock changes frequently – so if you see something you like, buy it! We couldn’t decide whether to originally purchase quite a large piece from here, but looking back we’re so glad we did – I love how the bright colours look against the dark navy wall.

Some less established artists are selling pieces or prints on Etsy, which is a great place to spend an hour (or two!) looking for art inspiration with the possibility of potentially grabbing yourself a bargain. I’m also a big fan of Notonthehighstreet.com, although the prices can vary quite considerably.

If you’re looking for some well-known prints, or have a particular artist you like then Art.co.uk is a great place to look. They also have clearance sales occasionally, so another great place to grab a bargain.

A site I’ve recently discovered, which does have a slightly smaller offering is Hu2. It was a site that actually popped up on my Facebook, but I couldn’t resist one of the prints on there.

I love New York, have visited twice and would go again in a heartbeat (if it wasn’t for the airfare costs!), so this print seemed particularly apt:

As I said, we don’t have a moving date set yet – but I can just picture this pretty on my study wall and I can’t wait!

What about you, where do you go for art inspiration? Any online shops that are a must see?
