Decorate Like a Pro

 Is your home colonial, modern, English, traditional, Victorian, minimalist, country/rustic/farm house, contemporary, Asian, transitional, French country, beach, bohemian chic, art deco, Scandinavian, urban modern, industrial or your own unique style?


Art offers an opportunity to showcase your tastes, lifestyle and personality in your home. Wall paintings or framed prints enable you to establish your own individual touch in each room of your home. More so than furniture, carefully selected art establishes your own decorating style and provides personal enjoyment. A typical decorating strategy is either to match art to the style of the home or go opposite and pick a contrary form of art, such as Victorian prints in a contemporary home.


Magazines, such as Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, House and Garden and other home decorating publications often have articles and pictures of houses with prints as wall decoration. You can personalize each room of your house with selected prints - living room, bedroom, children's bedroom. dining room, kitchen and even bathrooms. Original antique prints provides authentic art at a reasonable price with actual value compared to reproduction "art".


In any case, find the type of art you like!


  • Dining Room Print Selection - Perhaps, the ideal print selection for a dining room is botanical prints. Architectural and scenery prints are also popular. 
  • Kitchen Room Print Selection - The kitchen wall can be decorated with original prints
  • Bedroom Room Print Selection - A quiet atmosphere should have relaxing prints
  • Living Room Print Selection - Follow the style of your home in the living room. Large size prints usually work best with mar size 18 inches or more.
  • Bathroom Print Selection - Even bathrooms deserve prints. Small size prints 10 inches or less is the general rule.
