Your home should reflect your personality, interests, and all the things you love. You can do this in numerous ways through furniture, decorations, and accessories. One of the easiest ways to accomplish that is through the artwork you display around your home. However, many people worry about finding art that is not only beautiful, but at a price point that won’t break the budget. Going to an art gallery will give you inspiration but hurt your wallet. That is no longer the case! Here’s what we discovered:

Print Your Favorite Photos on Canvas
Some people’s favorite artwork displayed in their home is actually photos they take themselves while traveling, and had blown up & printed onto canvas. Snapfish allows you to create your own canvas photo art starting at $39, and it’s the perfect way to show off your favorite family photos or pay homage to your favorite vacation spot as a reminder to get back out there! These can be photos from your trip to Yosemite, your most recent night out with friends, or more artsy shots of city skylines. The only limit is your imagination.

One Word: Ikea
Many young first time home buyers  have somewhat of an Ikea obsession, and their “decoration” department is no exception. Between their extensive collection of artistic prints, frames, and accessories, you could truly find something for every room in your home — and still have money left over for those Swedish meatballs on your way out. And remember, their collections are rotating, so if you don’t find something you like immediately, you can easily come back another time. Now you’ve got another excuse to go back more often.

Joss and Main
Clicking around on this website is like digging for treasure – except you always find one .. or two, or three. This site is beautifully curated with discounted art, furniture, rugs, bedding… you get the idea. The best part?

That way you aren’t spending hours perusing the site to find that perfect coastal piece for your bathroom.

Sometimes, after searching around in stores and on the Internet for multiple hours, you realize that the best piece of art to own is one that you can make yourself. You can find inspiration for these projects on – you guessed it – Pinterest! It’s not only a great way to add something totally unique and special to your home, but it provides a great excuse to gather up your art supplies and enjoy a relaxing day of creativity. Once you’re done, you can post it to your own Pinterest page to inspire others.

Once you’ve find all the pieces you need for your home, sit back, relax, and enjoy all of your hard work to make your house a home.
