Do you guys get the Ballard Designs catalog in the mail?
In the past, I’ve had mixed feelings about Ballard’s items — some of it has previously been too traditional for my taste — but the cover of their spring catalog totally stopped me in my tracks.
And then I about died and went to color-and-pattern-filled Heaven when I saw more of what was inside. Here’s just one example:
Gorgeous, right?! Please give me alllllllll the happy colors and stripes and florals and….
Okay, I’ll stop. But I really could go on for hours. And side note: I really need more rooms to decorate because I am running out of space in my current home. (#designerproblems, I suppose.)
Anyway, one thing that continued to catch my eye in the Ballard Designs spring catalog was their beautiful, vintage-looking floral wall art.
It’s amazing, right? Here are a few of my favorite finds:
And while these are a bit different than those that I’ve shared above, I’m also loving the other nature-inspired prints they have available right now:
And while I love all of this artwork — and mind you, they all come in large sizes, starting at 30″ x 24″, which means they are made to realllllllly make a statement in a large room — many of these prints start at about $200. Now think about how much it would cost to buy 3 or 4 of these. YIKES.
Guys, that is so NOT in my wall art budget. And I’m guessing it’s probably not in yours, either. Am I right?
So what happens when I find artwork that I love, yet it’s waaaaay out of my price range?
Sometimes I do Google search upon Google search for something similar at a lower price point, and other times I just decide to make my own.
Well, today I’ve gone with option #2 and I’ve made my own Ballard Designs-esque vintage floral wall art prints, and I’m sharing them with you for FREE!
Here are the prints I created, which are all 16″ x 20″ in size:
Wall art is such a fun thing to change up with the seasons, and I firmly believe that you don’t have to spend a fortune to don your walls with beautiful, meaningful artwork.
P.S. The lovely designs I used to create this artwork came from this fabulous Etsy shop. Go give ’em some love!
