One of my all-time favorite tricks for refreshing a room as we transition from season to season is switching out the art. If you already own enough pieces to cycle them out from time to time (like I do), then the process is entirely free, but has the potential to completely transform a room.
For example, as you know I’m currently working on changing the color palette of our dining room for a black, blush, and gold themed dinner party, and I recently took down the art that you see pictured above to make room for pieces in the new color palette. After making sure the art was level and stepping back to view the space as a whole, I was left with my jaw practically on the ground—the difference was instantaneous and BIG.
Although I definitely don’t plan to replace all of our colorful wall art with more monochromatic alternates, the exercise of switching things out in the dining room made me realize just how different our home would look if we ever went neutral with our art.
In case you’re looking to invest in a few new pieces of art to transform the look and feel of your own space, here are my top 10 online resources for framed prints, photos, and paintings.
My Top 10 Online Resources For Fine Art
- Artfully Walls: I’ve been a big, big fan of this art retailer since practically the moment the brand launched online! The team behind Artfully Walls is simply the best, and their love for curating beautiful works of art is obvious as you scroll through their collections.
- Minted: Another big favorite of mine is Minted. I have a pretty sizable inventory of framed art from this online retailer, and have loved discovering modern artists thanks to the limited edition prints section of their site.
- Lulu & Georgia: Sure, Lulu & Georgia is known for their fabulous rugs, furniture, and pillows, but they also boast a massive collection of beautiful art! From modern abstracts to traditional botanicals, there’s something for everyone.
- Art.com: I haven’t personally purchased anything from Art.com, but I just now fell down the rabbit hole of their inventory based on a friend’s recommendation, and found dozens of contenders for our home. Have you ordered from them before?
- Serena & Lily: This is another one of those brands that took me by surprise with their art options. Turns out that Serena & Lily has a wealth of wall art and oil paintings to choose from, and none of them look mass-produced. I’ve been searching for pieces like this at all our local antique stores, but now I know where I can enjoy instant gratification.
- Photos.com: It’s no secret that I love Photos.com, as seen here, here, and here. I’m particularly infatuated with their collection of old Hollywood portraits.
- Tappan Collective: If you don’t know where to start when it comes to this editorial style art retailer, I suggest scrolling through the gorgeous Tappan Collective Instagram feed for direction!
- Society6: I love that you can find just about anything at Society6—from tapestries and phone cases, to printed clocks and traditional wall art, too.
- Etsy: If one-of-a-kind vintage art is more your style, why not check out the endless options available from Etsy? You can order original antique pieces with the click of your mouse without having to spend months and months turning over every frame at the antique store.
- Rifle Paper Co.: It’s almost safe to tout this brand as an all-around favorite. Sure, owning and hanging one of Anna Bond’s signature floral prints or illustrated portraits makes for a great Instagram shot, but her gorgeous art works are sure to evolve into timeless heirloom pieces in no time.
Did I leave your favorite art resource off the list? Leave a link in the comments so that we can continue our digital collecting. Oh, and while I have you, don’t forget to enter the giveaway going on now for a chance to win a copy of the new book, Scandinavian Gatherings!
These are excellent resources. 🙂 I would also add following on Instagram as a source for original art from emerging artists. You can see “behind-the-scenes” of how the art is made and often get a chance to connect with the artist personally.
Also, many artists allow you to DM or email them to buy art directly. And some run “flash sales” on smaller, inexpensive pieces. I love getting a chance to talk with collectors and other artists there and seeing bits of their daily lives.
That is SUCH a great point!! Thanks so much for weighing in on the discussion and for offering your thought. I love that idea! P.S. Your art is gorgeous, by the way 🙂
Thank you Carrie!
