Long-time readers of the blog would have heard us talk about bluethumb before and there’s good reason we love them so much — as Australia’s largest online gallery, you can easily search and filter results based on artistic style, price or size.
If you’re looking for original artwork (paintings, drawings, photography or limited edition prints), bluethumb needs to be on your list of places to check out. They also offer free shipping and free returns so you can be certain you’ve chosen the perfect piece.
Textile designer turned online art print queen, Zoe Bristow has curated or created the thousands of wall art prints under her brand The Print Emporium. All proudly Australian made, the quality is second to none.
Whether you want to create a sense of wanderlust with exotic travel captures, or bring a feeling of the outdoors in with a botanical or beach print, The Print Emporium has you covered. Oh, and did we mention they also have a fabulous range of abstract paintings?!
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!
With loads of choice, including framed ready-to-hang artworks, another place we love for buying artwork online is Interior Secrets.
You’ll often find they have great offers like spend and save campaigns or free shipping when you spend a certain amount. Yes please!
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.
One of our absolute favourite online stores for affordable wall prints is Yorkelee. This Canberra-business has a fab selection of floral photography and minimalist designs at super affordable prices… Like, starting from $8 affordable! Also, every piece has a story behind it which we love.
Another online store worth checking out for affordable wall prints is Adairs. They offer a great range of posters, canvases and prints. And you can often snap up a bargain with their clearance sale items. The bird poster we used in this bedroom look cost us just $2!
Nord Project doesn’t just offer effortlessly stylish Nordic art prints at great prices, they also help the environment by planting a tree for every poster sold! All of their posters are designed to bring style, cosiness and that feeling of hygge to your space.
