Decorating a space in your home can be intimidating. There are so many options out there and many can be rather expensive. So you’re not the artistic type (who cares!) and you don’t take photos or paint your own work and that’s okay. There are many platforms where you can either buy or download photographs, illustrations and other artwork. Pinterest, Instagram and old school magazines can provide ideas that work for your specific space.

If you’re stuck on what to do, this blog might just breathe some inspiration your way.

My go-to for inspiration is Pinterest, ALWAYS! Scroll and explore until you identify a look or style that appeals to you and works for the space you’re ready to decorate. From there you can either download or buy artwork on the following websites:

  • iStock
  • Getty
  • Shutterstock

Take me to the free sites, please!
Unsplash, Pexels and Pixabay are some of the best. You can find stunning landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, lifestyle images and creative portraits – for free.

Magazines might be old school but can lend themselves beautifully to create (basically free) art pieces. If there’s an image that really speaks to you, you can easily frame it and voila! Art. A framed keepsake menu from your favourite restaurant, can be quite an interesting conversation piece. The options are endless, if you let your imagination go.
