We've been in our house long enough (2.5 years) that I've collected a nice little hoard of smaller artwork, but now I need some big kahunas to make a statement. And anybody who's ever wanted to buy something larger than an 8x10 knows that art can get a wee bit expensive. I'm pining after a sassy abstract cow for our dining room--which is now on backorder, ugh--but we still need some sizable pieces for a few other places. I bet I'm not the only one in this boat, so today I shouldered the burden of research and found some lovely artwork on the bigger side (at least 16x20) that will set you back less than $100.
Side note: you can always DIY your own big ol' artwork, but sometimes I just like to buy something and be done with it, ya know?
If you're really looking to save money or need something totally huge, embrace a poster. If you put it in a real frame with a mat, it will be nothing like what you had on your walls in high school. (We have two vintage travel posters in the family room and they look very snazzy thanks to nice frames.) Another tip is to see if an artist you like sells print versions of their original paintings. Several of these are from Etsy or Society6, both of which are great places to poke around for prints and photography. The prices will vary a bit from shop to shop, but for the most part, deals abound.
Ready to see why I'm all up in your business about large art today?
Boosh! Something smaller could still go there, I suppose, but it wouldn't have the same impact as this trio does. Using something that fills up more of the wall actually makes the space look bigger, which is always a plus.
