If you’ve got an unsightly crack in your wall, you should fix it, of course. But, seeing as you might be short on time/money/motivation to spackle it properly, these wall stickers of branches and birds could be a temporary alternative. If you’re artistically inclined, you could draw/paint something similar, but then you’d have to paint over the entire area when you’re done, and let’s face it, the less work the better.
Price per sheet.

Sure, the whole ‘keep calm and carry on’ thing is getting a bit overdone, but this is geared towards the photographer, so it’s permissible. Plus, it’s super cheap, so it might cheer up a bare bit of wall.

Woodcut prints will always fascinate me. The end results usually are impressive enough as it is, but knowing the time and patience to get there just adds to the appreciation. These tree prints by Bryan Nash Gill certainly offer a new kind of woodcut experience, by letting the trees speak for themselves.
Two prints are available, the Locust and the Hemlock, which are $800 and $4000 respectively.

Sure, you can find marquee lights around and about at antique shops and such, but with these you can pick whatever letters you want and there’s an ‘@’ symbol too. Immediate gratification vs. original signage? Tough choice.

A large map on a wall always adds a certain kind of charm to a room, especially ones that show personalized marks of travels. Artist Oliver Jeffers provides a hand-drawn map for those looking for something a bit more offbeat than typical maps available to purchase. Comes with pins too, to “chart your path to total global domination.”
*Created exclusively for the You and Me, The Royal We by Oliver Jeffers
*Each print comes with 202 pins.
*Dimensions: 34.5″ x 26.25″

Okay, so some of these aren’t ‘new’ as in brand-spanking-new, but seeing as we’ve only covered the Headboards by Mina Javid and some earlier wall graphics, it’s definitely time for some serious coverage. You know about Threadless teaming up with Blik, but did you know about Third Drawer Down jumping on the wagon too? This is where your heart goes pitter-pat at the thought of placing some odd-yet-wonderful graphics around your home. From very small Rub-Ons to large wall decals, there’s quite the collection to choose from.

Kris posted the JUXTAPOSED: Religion from Mike and Maaike back in October of ’07, and I can honestly say I’ve never stopped wanting it. And now, as if to torture us further, they’ve created a second series focused on “seven of the world’s most seminal texts on power” which is offered in a numbered, limited edition of 50.
“2,451 pages 2,390 years 2,251 wars 432 revolutions 90 empires 7 books 1 shelf.”

It’s never too late to start an art collection, and don’t you dare say you can’t afford it because there’s several sites out there that will prove you wrong. Maybe you can’t afford big-city-major-gallery-brand-name art (goodness knows most of us can’t), but there’s quite a bit of ‘budget’ art that runs around $20-$100 for smaller prints. I personally got lost on Little Paper Planes* the other day, and ended up buying three small prints for under $100, which is not bad at all. So, if you’ve got some blank walls begging for a lil’ bit of art, check it out.

I love, love, love these custom nesting dolls by Hally McGehean. There’s fashion mag pics and vintage photography to choose from, or whatever else if you go the custom route. You can even get a little racy with photos of yourself (in various undress) if you’ve the guts. Love it.

If you look closely at the top print, you can see the animals’ shadows make a sentence. I’d seen the ‘STATES UNITED’ print (bottom right) before somewhere, but looking at the whole collection of prints makes me appreciate each individual one even more.
*All prints are created using a xylene transfer process*. Itís like a screenprint, but without the screen, and the artwork is hand-transferred inch by inch over a long hour. Each xylene print is an original, slightly different from the last, all signed and numbered.

This metal heart ’emits a soft spheric’ sound so that when you’re crying yourself to sleep on Valentine’s Day you’ll have some comfort. Just kidding. Forgo those lame boring valentine’s gifts (roses, candy, blah) for this little gift, because it’ll last a heck of a lot longer and it looks waaay better than any red/pink-plastic/cellophane-stuffed-bear/basket type of thing. Pair it with a sentimental note and you’re done*.
If you’re still looking for a gift, by the way, you can always take a gander at our Gift Guide. It’s chockfull of easy-to-browse thumbnails of almost everything that we’ve ever posted that could be a decent gift.
*unless your significant other is a gold-digger, in which case be prepared to duck and/or dodge when he or she throws it at you.

Talk about wall art, this huge mural is one heck of a commitment. You can order whatever size you want, of course, but seeing it this size sure makes an impact, doesn’t it?
With this wallpaper, you choose the custom size you want, Height x Width and the design will be scaled to that size. It will come in self adhesive strips that overlap to make a seamless, large scale mural.
Production fee: $500.00 plus $6.44/sq ft.
Purchase Information:Price: $500.00+

Think of this print as an expensive cheat sheet.
The prize for the best art history goes without doubt to Vuk Vidor, an artist from Belgrade working in Paris. His mural called ‘Art History’ is a list; on each line he links an artist to his/her cultural impact in three words. He is so efficient that he tackles over 30 in his piece. So for example he writes ‘Mondrian owns Geometry’, ‘Pollock owns Drippings’, ‘Warhol owns Pop’, ‘Botero owns Fat’ and ‘Munch owns Despair’.
