Curating art for your home can be tricky and expensive. How many framed posters are too much? Does the Van Gogh rendition from the paint and sip class you took eons ago good enough to prop on the living room wall?

Beyond conventional picks such as framed pictures, prints, and paintings, there are tons of options out there that you wouldn’t necessarily categorize as art, but do a good job of dressing up walls and infusing warmth and personality into a space. Even better? They are absolutely affordable. From delicate wire sculptures to peelable murals (such a great invention for renters!), to vibrant foliage—when it comes to picking non-traditional art for your home, the sky is truly the limit. Here are eight of our favorite picks.

Bonjour Wire Script Sculpture

The delicate wire sculpture is such a whimsical addition to an entryway, above a buffet table, bar cart or just added to an existing gallery wall. We love the delicateness and romantic vibe of the sculpture.

Abate Slatted Mirror

A mirror as art? Yes, absolutely. The beautiful detailing in this piece, the interesting shape, and the vintage vibe make this a perfect focal piece for a living room wall or the empty space above your bed.

Wildflower Bouquet Wall Mural

Picture a clean white wall with a sudden burst of soothing colors and florals. Sounds lovely, doesn’t it?

There are a ton of other options to choose from.

Bianca Macrame Wall Art

Macrame has been a 2019 breakout trend and we can’t get enough of the strong boho vibes it adds to any space. This piece particularly caught our eye for the size and monochromatic color scheme that can seamlessly blend into any decor style.

Djosan Poshti West Persian Rug Print Wall Hanging

Persian rugs for the floor is great and all that, but how about bringing its mystical charms to a wall as well? We love this for a cozy addition to the bedroom or add it to the space above the couch and pick cushions in primary colors inspired by the rug print to create a cohesive look. You can also opt for a more abstract look or go with florals—there are tons of styles to choose from.
