I have weird issues with buying art. On one hand, I do happen to like stuff that I see in stores, but I also kind of can't stand that my living room is completely identical to most living rooms I see on instagram. I know it's kind of trivial, but it's a little bit annoying, and I'm sure it annoys you, too. Essentially, we all buy the same stuff, amiright? There's the Ikea rug, the Ikea pillows, and of course the Ikea artwork. Sure it's fine, but if you're looking for something original and different, I have a suggestion on where to look...
I was directed to the FREE ARTtwo50 app in the iTunes store and instantly fell in love. How it works is easy- you take a picture of your blank wall/space and then you're able to literally browse different art pieces in that space through the app. The advantage is that you'll be able to see what the art will look like in your home. So pretty much- convenient and awesome. This is really helpful for me because I don't have to commit to buying something, taking it home, and then realizing it really doesn't work. I also love that artists can submit their work to be purchased, and so you're supporting talented artists as well.
If you're still confused, I thought this video was really helpful…
Each piece has a details and bio page, so it makes shopping for art easy and informative. You can add different pieces to your cart, place your order, and then have your art delivered to your home- feeling totally confident that everything will look great.
Boom! Art on your wall that you love!
No iPad? No big deal. You can actually purchase art straight from Pinterest. I thought this was really cool.
