The right artwork can really elevate your home. However, it’s not always cheap. As we know, some art pieces can set you back thousands of dollars! The good news is there are way more affordable options that still look great, so you can decorate your walls in peace.
You can find vintage postcards and maps from across the globe for cheap at markets or online. Check out Etsy, Ebay, or just google vintage postcards/maps for specific online shops. Add frames to make them look more expensive.
Fashion Magazine Covers
This is something that can make or break your room, so choose your images carefully! If done right it will give a chic, fashion editor feel. If done wrong it will look like a dorm room. Older magazines tend to have less writing on the cover so they feel more timeless and curated. Again, be sure to frame them so it looks very intentful.
Give your room a personal touch and relive great memories by making a polaroid statement. You can arrange them in a shape, hang them off strings (adding fairy lights is optional), or clip them to a grid.
Some bands have very cool and artistic posters, so be sure to check out the merch stand the next time you’re at a gig. This is another item you’ll want to frame to avoid the dorm room look.

Up-and-Coming Artist Prints

Do some research and hit up a local art fair in your area, you’ll probably be able to find some amazing and affordable prints from up-and-coming artists. You can also do some browsing online and/or on instagram to find artists that ship prints.
Add some greenery to your home with wall planters. You can find relatively inexpensive ones that will definitely liven up your empty walls.
