{Designer’s Secret} Where To Buy Art!

I get this question on a weekly basis… from clients… from family… from strangers that find out I am a Designer…

Where should I look for art?

Such a broad question…

As we all know, the price and style of art runs the gamut. But I thought we would show you a few places that we have had luck purchasing beautiful pieces for clients that can fit in their particular budget.

Economically Friendly… ETSY

Rachillustrates is a great place to look for adorable typography prints. Put in a sophisticated frame and its an inexpensive way to add some spunk to any space! $29

Check out LaurenAdamsArt on Etsy. Pretty acrylic and watercolor art- and they are originals! $50


Want original work without paying thousands? Checkout OraBirenbaumArt on Etsy. A great way to add color without getting to crazy. $365


Quick and Easy Art… Shop Retail!

West Elm’s The Rapids $109


Z Gallerie’s Moonlight Fern, Set of 6 $499.95

Z Gallerie’s Half Light 1 $$119.95

Ethan Allen‘s Blue Porcelain Bird and Bee $489

Art Not Found In Every Store… Through Your Designer!

It’s true… as Designers we have accounts with a lot of different vendors, which means great prices on some really pretty art. And because we travel to market, visit showrooms often, and always have our eyes on new catalogs, we are always on the hunt for beautiful art that we haven’t used before. So why not let your designer do the work for you? (You knew I would have to plug our work somehow right?!)

All art under $500…


Support Your Community… And Buy Local!

For our local Minnesota readers… we are blessed with TONS of beautiful art galleries. Here is one of my favorites!

Hope this helps! Where do you shop for art? I love finding new sources!
