Best of Etsy : Art for Your Walls

gallery wall This month’s Best of Etsy is focused on one of my favorite topics right now… art! I have been sourcing art for our living room for the past few weeks now and I have had SO much fun finding awesome resources all over the web. One of my favorite places to shop for one-of-a-kind art is Etsy. Etsy is a great resource for original and vintage artwork, affordable prints, photographs, paintings and figure drawings. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite pieces for your walls below.

When putting together a gallery wall or even just a small collection of artwork, variety is key. It’s best to pair contrasting styles such as a bold, high contrast, abstract piece with a quiet photograph or soft sketch. You also want to think about the color palette- keeping it pretty consistent or within the same family. Aside from finding cohesive pairings and groupings, you should also consider originality. Wouldn’t you rather have something vintage, interesting, or original? Etsy is the perfect place to find affordable artwork that isn’t mass produced. It may take a little digging, but the end result is well worth it!

    i’m sure i’ve bookmarked several art shops on etsy, but names are not coming to mind. it is a great source, though… and one i need to remember to go back to, because i’ve sort of been in a Minted rut… maybe out of loyalty, since i have some prints for sale there. =)

    great roundup here! which i could buy that braque lithograph!!!
