I'm making some updates to my son's room including changing the current artwork. I have approximately one billion prints favorited on Etsy, but most of them are small, 8" x 10"ish. I think it's time to go big. No futzing with different layouts for a grouping, no buying multiple frames and prints and, a bonus as a renter, only putting one nail in the wall. As I think about exactly what I want to hang on the wall, I turn to reader rooms with big art for inspiration.I found a lot - big framed prints and photographs, big canvases, big maps and even large fabric hangings. No matter the medium, the result is that each one makes a big statement and proves that sometimes less is more.
Now the matter of where to find large, affordable artwork. I'll let you know what good sources I find once I've done my research. A good place to start is this Good Question about oversized art. Readers had many helpful suggestions including printing your own photographs at Kinkos or other offices stores, asking Etsians whose work you like if they will do a custom size for you and buying original art from students.
