DESIGN HACK? $5 ART THAT LOOKS LIKE A MILLION BUCKS!

DESIGN HACK? $5 ART THAT LOOKS LIKE A MILLION BUCKS!

Here is a normal 4 step process for our clients:

Step 1. Buy a house. (YAY!)

Step 2. Buy furniture for said house. (FUN!)

Step 3. Buy things like a lawn mower, a snow blower and maybe a water softener.  (WAY LESS FUN!)

Step 4. Realize your budget for art and accessories is non existent.  (BOO!)

Oh, those poor walls.  They are usually the last thing to be thought about, but the right art can truly make a whole room!  Well, no worries.  We have a design hack to make your walls and wallet happy.  How do you feel about $5 art?  Purchase from the shops below and they will email you a high resolution image to print.  Easy enough?!

Hello Gorgeous Wall Art has a bit of everything, but we are in love with this photograph!  Most downloads are under $6.

We love the tranquility of water and this it works with most design styles.  Not digging blue?  Try the same option in black and white. OHFINALE shop has 217 downloads from $2-10.

Is modern art more your style?  Check out Paradigim Shop for some awesome options.  I love their hilarious quotes and prints too.  I don’t think there is a single option I don’t love.  Most options are around $6 and you can get 30% off if you buy multiple prints!

This is our favorite saying at Fox Homes and we love this print!  I Think You Ink has some great inspiration and hilarious quotes for $4.  Don’t love the options?  You can create your own quote!

Who doesn’t love baby animals?  We think they are the perfect fit for a nursery or kids room!  Lila+Lola has awesome downloads of baby animals and other stunning photography.  We figured the fox was a fitting example, but we love all of her animals!  The bunny front and back combo?  You’re killing us!  Most options are $6, but are currently 30% off!

All you need is a computer and a printer.  Seriously.

When it comes to framing, there are a millions of options!  Most people have a few unused frames hanging around.  Otherwise a trip to a Goodwill or a Target can be an inexpensive way to find a great frame. Maybe you’d like a more unique way to hang your art?  Stay tuned for another blog post about it coming up!
