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.

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!
