It’s no secret that a beautiful piece of art can transform a room – turning a house into a home. Choosing the right wall decor will help you to create that longed-for layered looked found on the pages of luxurious interiors magazines.

There are no hard or fast rules when buying art. In fact the only things you need to remember are to stick to your budget and choose a piece that you love.

Think about your existing furniture and decor and choose an artwork that complements your style. If you have the luxury of starting from scratch, why not buy your artwork first and build the look of the room around it.

There are many types of art out there, but there is a knack to finding affordable art that looks fabulous and won’t break the bank.
