Whether you’re interested in introducing some color into your home or want to add a touch of drama to an otherwise drab room, wall art is one of the best ways to liven up a space. It has the benefit of being portable (you can pack it up with your things when you move), swappable (much better than tearing down wallpaper), and pair-able (who doesn’t love a good gallery wall?). Indeed, when it comes to easy decorating ideas, incorporating art is a no-brainer. The thing that isn’t easy, however, can be tracking down the art that you want. For those with schedules that don’t permit constant gallery-hopping, finding the best art for your home can sometimes seem next to impossible.
Luckily, a fresh crop of new and exciting companies have popped up, each with a mission to bring the best of the creative world to your home. From limited edition prints from some of today’s most popular artists to one-of-a-kind creations, these ten sources will have you bringing beautiful art into your home in no time.
