Boho Art & Styling

Featuring a collection of photography, curated artwork and graphic designs, Boho Art & Styling is a boutique online art studio with pieces starting from $50. We love the option to order artwork only or add on framing when you order — in eco-friendly, plantation grown solid timber frames, no less!

They also offer a great service to personally help you select the right artwork for your style or project. By sending through a photo of your room, they will superimpose some suggestions of artwork into the photo so you can see how it looks. Love it!

Greenhouse Interiors

If you love original art, Greenhouse Interiors is a must-visit online store. For over 10 years, the team at Greenhouse Interiors has been curating some of Australia’s best artists. While the original artworks are certainly an investment purchase, you can also find a wide range of more affordable limited edition art prints (on canvas or cotton rag paper). From still life paintings to landscapes, abstracts and everything in between, you’re sure to find an artwork to love in their collection.
