I love an art-filled home. There’s nothing better than stepping inside a space to discover a thoughtfully-curated array of pieces that each tell a story. Sprinkled down a hallway or positioned among complementary pieces, affordable art prints can add character to any room with little effort.
I know the struggle well: you’ve just moved into a new home or are looking to transform your apartment, and conversation-starting art is a priority. But things get really pricy, really fast. A few of my favorite thrifty ways to add art to my home are by hunting down estate sale finds, getting my hands messy creating art myself, or browsing all the best affordable art prints. I love shopping for prints because you’re often supporting small independent artists, all without dropping a ton of cash.
While the gallery wall trend may be on its way out, timeless art is forever. With that design truth in mind, we rounded up the best affordable art prints from our favorite online home stores. So cozy up with a cup of tea or your favorite warm-weather drink, take a seat, and get to scrolling. Is there anything better than shopping for art from your couch?

Orange Tree by Rachel Roe
I love Cézanne’s series of overturned baskets of oranges, the citrus tumbling beautifully across linen tablecloths. But if you can’t shell out for a post-impressionist painter’s originals (relatable), this stunning print isn’t just a good alternative—it’s a unique, statement-making piece that’ll add interest and depth to any wall.

Matisse Cut Outs Exhibition Poster
Matisse’s cut-outs are considered to be some of his most career-defining works. Fun fact: When the artist fell ill later in life and could no longer paint, he set to making collages with a pair of scissors and colored paper. With that knowledge in mind, there’s nothing keeping you from proudly displaying this pastel dream in your home.
