Wall art helps make a house truly feel like a home. When all of your favorite prints and paintings are finally tacked up, you feel a sense of completeness to your living space. But often, filling your walls with great images is easier said than done—especially when you don’t know where to look. Luckily, it’s now simpler than ever to display art produced by creative folks across the world. Sites like Etsy and Society6 offer a variety of work that's for sale right now.

So, how do you figure out what to display? Determining your aesthetic can be tricky and at times confusing. When you first begin to look for things to hang, it’s helpful to know what you don’t like. Do you cringe at cacti? Prefer portraits to landscapes? Shudder at the color red? First, figure out these idiosyncrasies, and then you can seek out images that avoid those things. In doing this, you’re keeping yourself open to the vast possibilities of images while still narrowing the scope of them.

To get you started on wall art ideas, we’ve found pieces available as high-quality prints. But don’t be afraid to start scrolling through Etsy, Society6, and other sites on your own—it’s fun and addictive!

When deciding what to display on your wall, try figuring out what you don't want to hang. That will help narrow your search.
