And now to the heart of the matter--I recently found this amazing website for art. When furnishing a place, one of the last things that comes in is wall art. Sometimes I get so intimidated by artwork--a lot of it is expensive, and if you want it framed? Forget about it!
BUT--I did find this awesomely amazing website called 20X200. The idea behind this site is art for everyone. Artwork starts at just $20 (a steal!) and goes up from there. Their formula is as follows: "(limited editions × low prices) + the internet = art for everyone"
It's a brilliant concept, really. Below are some of my favorites:

And here's my other tip. You don't have to have a print framed professionally in order for it to look good. If you want an easy fix, Michael's sells some nice gallery frames with the matte included for a very reasonable price. If you're willing to put a little work into it, you can find great frames from any store, and purchase the matte to go in them from craft's stores like Michael's. West Elm also has some good lookin' frames with removable mattes in paper and linen for a reasonable penny. Matte adds depth to an image, and creates a more classic and streamlined look. Give it a try--and stay tuned, I may be going on a 20X200 shopping spree!
