Wall art

Lately I've been scouring Etsy for some fantastic prints to adorn the walls of our future house. 

This is actually a print that we own already. We bought it from the Red Door Gallery on our visit to Edinburgh in October. It is available on Etsy from Kate McLelland though. We are going to try to collect posters from all of our travels now (although they may be limited in the future!)

We both love the weird animal prints by Berkley Illustration! This little chappy would certainly cheer up our house on a glum day. 

I love how intricate the details are on this drawing by Christine Berry

This would be perfect in the kitchen! I love how colourful all of Laura Amiss's work is. 

I got Scott this squirrel from the Tugboat print shop for Christmas. They are all woodcut prints and there are some seriously amazing prints available in their shop


Finally, two library related prints that I cannot resist. The first one is by paperfingers and the last one is by Paul of Navarone in Glasgow. It's actually made from a map! Love it. 

Anyone have any Etsy shops for prints to recommend to me?

  7. It's not etsy, but I bought this print for my house from Bold & Noble: http://boldandnoble.com/prints/13_British_Isles_type_map/Sheer_slate

    Bold and Noble have lots of other great prints. They are a little pricey, but they are huge 70cm by 50 cm, and great quality. I'm not sponsored by them - promise!!

  10. I really like the Edinburgh print.
    You should totally have those Library prints at your new house, they're so you. They reminded me of your librarian pin, have you been using it? It's so cute!

  13. The last one is absolutely lovely.

    I've been trawling through etsy recently in search of papercut/silhouette type artwork. There's lots of it but I seem to have expensive taste - the stuff I really like is £200+ :(

  17. i love the last one with the map detailing, i wonder if the artist does pieces like that on commission so you could choose a word/phrase made out of your local area? it would be great if you could see your corner shop or old primary school peeking out of the words!

  21. Do I ever!
    Atm I'm very close to buying a print by 'Oh my cavalier', not technically etsy, but nevertheless. On etsy I like sarahmcneil, deerface, groundwork, vintagepaperworks, lizzystewart, myfolklover and librislunaria. Just to name a few haha. Art is pretty personal, but those are the usernames you peruse! Good luck.
