Affordable Art That Doesn't Look Cheap

If you're like me, you like art. You appreciate art. However, besides mass produced posters of Mirós and Rauschenburgs, you can't really afford unique pieces of art. But, hello -- that's not really true! There's lot of great affordable art out there to choose from. Here are three online places to check out. 20x200 sells limited edition prints at prices as low as $20 and as high as $2,000. Every single piece comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity that is signed by the artist. I love this print from Jane Mount's "Ideal Bookshelf" series (pictured), because it has two of my favorite books on it -- Charlotte's Web and The Phantom Tollbooth

Next is Charmingwall, a small gallery in New York City that curates open-edition fine art prints that start at $20. You can order online, and for an additional $20, they'll mat the piece for you.

Last is GigPosters, a site that sells concert posters for pretty much any band out there. So whether you prefer Arcade Fire or Paramore, each has a huge selection to choose from. I have collected a stack of posters over the years that have decorated the walls of every room I've lived in. If you're a music fan, I highly recommend going this route!
