1. Bring your favourite holiday home with this quirky print
If you are missing going on holiday every few months, then this quirky and colourful print could stop those holiday blues – for now. Find your favourite holiday destination in BudandBudPrints Etsy shop, or request a custom order, and hang it with pride in your hallway, bedroom or nestled in a gallery wall. Hopefully, it will remind you of happier times each and every time you pass it. Soon come...
BudandBudPrints Cote D'Azur Travel Print | £14 at Etsy
This lovely print comes in four designs and it measures 21cm (width) by 29.7cm (height). It is printed onto 300gsm high-quality matte photo paper, using premium inks. Pop it in a plain A4-size frame and let it brighten your walls immediately.
2. Keep it simple with this black and white duo
This minimalist duo would look great above a bed – or sofa. Delicately drawn yet so effective, these abstract drawings feature the same woman with one print drawn from her front and the other from behind. We think they would look lovely displayed inside a thick wooden frame. An ideal pick for neutral, Skandi-style homes. Or if you already have enough coloured artwork on your walls.
PeachesByEllie Abstract Line Woman Wall Print Set - Silhouette Lady | From £6 at Etsy
These handmade prints come in a range of sizes – from 4x6 to 16x20. They are professionally printed onto a high-quality photo card – 260gsm resin-coated photo card, that is – and buyers rave about how expensive they look.
3. One for garden (or jardin) lovers
For a garden lover or someone who wants a pop of colour in their kitchen, orangery or even home office, this high-quality print is perfect. It features a mix of colours from blues to shades of green, yellow and pinks and purples. Vibrant yet muted.
4. Add this fruity print to a gallery wall for a pop of colour
Gallery walls are hard to collate, and it's even more difficult to decide which prints to hang in where. If you are hoping to add to your gallery wall soon, and it's a pop of colour yours is in desperate need of, then this print could add just that – and more. Better yet, pop it in a hallway to brighten up an otherwise dark space. Alternatively, you might want to place it in your living room, similar to the photo above, to make a statement.

Fruit art is something we can definitely get on board with – especially as we come into the warmer months. Although we are concerned that every time we see this print we will want an Aperol Spritz. Choose from A3, A4 or A5 and frame this lovely print in a frame that boasts a border. It's printed on 230gsm matte archival paper, so rest assured it will catch your eye.
5. Because home IS where the heart is...
You could alternatively opt for something a little more personal – for example, this house portrait. Hand-drawn in Devon, this piece of artwork will be bespoke to you – and your home – and it makes a lovely addition to a hallway. Not just for homes, but Wendy from LetterFest can also draw flats, bungalows, shops, offices, schools, landmarks, churches and wedding venues. This could make a very unique gift idea...
6. Make a statement with this International Women's Day print
This pink print reads 'Empowered women empower women' and it more than deserves pride of place in your home office – just above your desk will suffice. We love everything about this print – the colours, the fonts, the perfectly drawn hands and the detailed clothing. You needn't place it on a gallery wall – it makes a statement on its own.
7. This botanical print – for those who are (not so) green fingered
If you are wanting to bring the outside into your home but you are not very green-fingered, then we can help. Let's glide past plastic faux plants, and straight to plant artwork – specifically, this print from LauraAndrewsStudio. Bursting with botanicals from British Cow Parsley to Yellow Craspedia, grasses and striking Foxglove, all of which are featured on a dark background to make this print pop on a lighter painted wall. It will arrive on your doorstep hand-signed, too.
