Going to galleries can be intimidating and buying art at a big box store can feel generic. So how do you get that big, bold art for above the couch in your new place without spending a fortune or losing face? There’s a new retailer that is helping make fine art accessible and easier to select than ever…Americanflat.

They work with up and coming artists around the world and print their original artworks in the highest quality available in limited editions of 100 each on huge canvases that are 3 feet across! The best part to me, is that you can select a color, whether it’s the color of your living room or your favorite color and they will show you art with that color in it.

Americanflat have created this site for people who are just starting to learn about art, who don’t want spend a ton on art, and for people who want their space to look awesome but don’t want to put too much thought into it. Since these limited edition fine art prints are only $250, they aren’t cost prohibitive like most large art is.

I particularly like “City Lights” by Xavier Janssens because it has a lot of different colors in it. That means I can change up the colors of my living room without having to worry about it clashing with my art. I also like “Landscape 0609 – Part” by Sophia Yw because it is so soothing and perfect for the bedroom.

So, enjoy dipping your toes into the art world and find the perfect piece to define your space without fear of overspending or underwhelming.
