Art for Everyone

This post is brought to you by 20 x 200. Sign up for their newsletters to find out about their latest prints right here.

I’m a longtime fan of  20 x 200 for art. We are still waiting to hear if we got our apartment in San Francisco but I’ve already started decorating it in my head. Here are some of my favorite pieces on 20 x 200 right now.

First, this awesome print of Kite Hill.

These elephants for the entry way or maybe the boys’ room.

I am obsessed with this foggy print, it is so gorgeous.

This galloping print of a racehorse.

I love Christian Chaize’s beach series.

Lisa Congdon’s work is awesome. I want this print of vintage airline tags.

I love this poplar print for a living room.

This foggy “Food” sign can come in my apartment anytime.

I really love Sharon Montrose’s work. These three ducklings would be so sweet in a nursery.

Even thought the apartment is small I sometimes like the look when art takes up the whole wall. This picture above from Elle Decor is really inspiring.  On a side note I love really really what 20 x 200 has done for the art world. For so long good art seemed inaccessible for most people. 20 x 200 offers great art by amazing artists and a range of price points so everyone can find something for them. Save $15 on orders of $50+. Code HAPPY Expires 4/30.

Which ones are your favorites? Also, do you think big art will make my small apartment look bigger or smaller?

    Wow i really like that first piece!

  • Lindsey says:

    I don’t think big art will make it look smaller. I love big art and I like when it fills a wall. And even if it does make it look a little smaller, if it’s great art makes it will make the space beautiful and that is the important thing. Thanks for sharing these great pieces.

    LOVE the beach scene – oversized! just makes me smile and think of summer….and vacations!

  • love the beach stuff since i’m a total massimo vittali junkie and this is right up that line of style. big fan of 20×200 too – it’s also great for offices and cubes too when you need to personalize a bit in your 9 to 5 life.

  • I am sad to see you are leaving Paris. I have been following you because of my own Reve Parisien. I am however looking forward to seeing more from you in San Fran.

    I love big Art & huge mirrors in small spaces. Why have a few whimpy pieces when you can have a dramtic statement. Placed on the right wall it will expand the space, especially if you add a mirror in an unexpected place like the kitchen. Thanks for allowing me to live vicariously through your Blog.

    Best,

    great post!! and resource!!
    thanks so much!

  • You have just made my day with this little bit of info.

  • Amy Harris says:

    This is crazy, but I know exactly where that food print was taken. I pass that every time I drive down to Joplin from Kansas City to visit my parents. It’s on Hwy 71 near Butler, Mo.

  • Lovely pieces, all of them!

    Go bold, go big — I think a huge piece would really be stunning in a smaller space :)

  • jillian says:

    who knows, maybe a large piece will make you feel like you’re looking out of a window (the beach series would be great)!

    Go large – go dramatic. I live in a small 1930’s cottage and having large pieces of art on the walls looks great. Too small can end up being fussy and a little dull.

  • I love these, and I definitely think big art gives depth and texture, and those two as a combo never fail!

  • Meg says:

    Loving these as well – Some of the prints for the kids rooms are fantastic – I am loving this site right now. Thanks for reminding me about it!

  • Robync says:

    Traveling is my absoute FAVORITE things so I love the vintage airline tags, although I wouldn’t say no to the gorgeous elephant print for me or my boys!

  • Luna says:

    The ‘foggy print’ and the ‘beach series’. I laughed at how you’re already decorating your SF apartment in your head.

  • Kyla says:

    Nice prints.

    p.s. can you think of a synonym for the word ‘love’.
    You LOVE everything.

  • These prints are great – thanks for sharing. I LOVE big prints in small spaces – it looks so dramatic and unexpected. I say go big! You will LOVE it.

    {seriously? who doesn’t like the word LOVE?}

  • Thanks so much for the reminder about 20×200, I completely forgot about this wonderful place to get me some art ;) I also love the beach photographs by Christian Chaize, and I’m also in love with the abstract paintings of Jennifer Sanchez. Thanks again!

  • Those airline tags are so fun! Now I am wishing I had saved all of mine over the years, been flying almost every year since I was a baby.

    the food one!

  • Gina says:

    I saw the Kite Hill print several years ago and have been trying to find it again! Thank you for this! (and I’m so glad to share the same taste). I love oversized art. Do it! Enjoy your week in Paris!

  • Sabrina says:

    I just bought my first “real” piece of art this weekend, and after my boyfriend had helped me hang it up, I commented that it was too small for the wall (the downside of living in a “big for NY” apartment). His response: “People don’t buy art by the square foot.” So, buy what you like. If something’s small, but you love it, buy it. If it’s a print situation, where different sizes are available for the same piece, I say definitely go big.

    I also like Sharon Montrose and Christian Chaize – Christian I believe I found on 20×200 also.

  • LOVE the beach scene. I am moving in a couple of months and I too am decorating a home in my head.

  • Jess says:

    I would love a large print like this, especially those vintage tags!

  • Meggan Hayes says:

    Do you happen to know the story behind the horse print?

  • Alli says:

    Ahhhhh I always plan out my imaginary apartments in my head. Welcome back to SF! It’s been beautiful here and the city is buzzing with excitement and good weather. I’m crossing my fingers that you get your apartment. It can be brutal here!

  • Christina says:

    You should do a collective of all those great shots your husband took of your time in Paris and print them together as 2×2 or 3×3 squares and then print it really large. It would look awesome because the colors of each square would come out and the overall design of how you print it would look great.

    Hi Jordan,
    I just wanted to let you know that we have just started a gallery, bit similar to 20×200 (we love them, too!), however, focusing only on fine art photography. In terms of genre, little different, little more European, i believe.
    If you feel like, please check out our website (still bit under construction… :-), at art-fizz.com

    Happy day!

  • Erin says:

    I adore that beach scene! The food sign would be really cute in a retro kitchen. I really like big art, I think it draws attention from anywhere in the room, it almost has the effect of a paint color or wallpaper since it’s artwork on such a large scale.

  • […] visit oh happy day (one of my daily reads)… they recently posted some of their favorite pieces from the site as […]
