Its Jess B here. As our construction project is winding down, I’m now switching gears from choosing the permanent fixtures to the softer things that pull the room together. Art, of course, is a part of the mix for me.
I’m spending a lot of time online looking for art that will help complete the spaces. I thought it would be a good idea to share my top 5 favorite resources.
– Minted is much more then a place to buy wedding stationary. It is a design-driven marketplace where you can find anything from housewares, stationary and curated art. Prices are reasonable and even have a mix and match section if you are really stumped on how to pair works.
2. Saatchi Art
– Charles Saatchi
‘s estranged distant cousin Saatchi Art is like a supermarket of mediums. Prices range from under $100 to into 5-figure territory. The sheer volume of material available, can make the site daunting. But, with strict parameters, there are unique finds.
– Etsy can also be a black hole of mediocre art. I tend to think outside the box with Etsy and look for things like letterpress and textiles.
4. Art Artists and Artwork
– Art Artists and Artwork is actually a Facebook page that I follow. Their feed features a steady stream of member artists. They do have a limited number of works that can be purchased directly on their website.
– 20/200 has come back from their financial troubles
from a few years ago. The site has a large selection of curated prints at great prices points.
