Lists: Fabulous art ideas for $50 or less

As I said a few days ago, I believe the value of art is in the eye of the beholder.  I don’t believe that you have to spend much money to make your walls look great.  I remember my sheer disappointment when I saw the Mona Lisa hanging in The Louvre.  Small, dark, and depressing.  I mean it with all honesty that I would not be all that excited to have that dumpy woman starting out from my walls, be it original or a cheap reproduction from a museum shop.  I love color and I love inspiration.  Don’t get me wrong:  I would love to own some fabulous original artwork someday, but for now, my home can look lovely without breaking the bank and so can yours!

Recently, I came across two sites, both of which sell their work on Etsy.  I love Etsy because it supports local artists and consists of so many fun and unique items, often at very good prices.

The Pink Pagoda- glicee prints:

Here are a couple that I love…Hadley’s room is done in orange and pink.  The elephant would look darling on her wall.



Wallfry: Fabulous art for the small fry in your life.  Perfect for children’s bedrooms or your playroom!  Based in Australia, he will ship quickly to you in the U.S.

I bought a series of three prints for Hadley’s room.  I bought inexpensive white frames at Christmas Tree Shops for $5 each.  I love their Nantucket line of white wooden frames.  They are extremely sturdy for the price.

Here are a few that you might like!


Happy decorating!
