I’ve been collecting prints and putting them in frames for about a year now in the vain hope that we will get round to creating gallery wall. I’m very keen on typography style prints and anything beauty and fashion related, I am also a big fan of botanical prints. They were huge last year and they are set to be even bigger with the advent of greens and greenery as a key trend in interiors.
Add Character to your home with a bold print
Prints are an inexpensive way to add character to your home and you can usually get a decent frame in Ikea to fit your print if you opt for the unframed option – which is usually cheaper. Displayed in the right place prints will make an impact on your home whether you’re creating a focal point or bringing a dull corner to life.
I have bought beautiful (framed) prints from Oliver Bonas in the past and more recently from Desenio. Olive et Oriel prints are very popular at the moment but I must urge you to have a good look around Etsy when you are shopping for prints.
Head over to Etsy for unique prints
Take Slay My Print for example, I found the lovely Matt and Adam on Instagram, their ‘Holy Shit You Look Ahu-may-zing’ print made me do a double take. I found their Etsy shop, we got chatting and I really wanted to support their small but perfectly formed business.
Designing and creating their own wedding stationery sowed the seed for what has now become their printing business. They were flooded with requests from friends for prints for their own homes and so Slay My Print was born with style and a whole lot of attitude!
So wether you are looking for a bold print that will make a statement or smaller prints that will form part of gallery consider looking around Instagram and Etsy for unique prints to adorn your walls.
Pinterest has pages and pages of inspiration and ideas for displaying art and prints in your home. The Apartment Therapy website also has some helpful tips on how to create a gallery wall and this blogpost from Lauren Conrad gives you a very comprehensive breakdown of the process, plus the photography is beautiful so I guarantee you’ll enjoy browsing the post.
What do you have hanging on your walls? I’d love to know!
