Pairing Prints

After a decade of being a couple, Michael knows by now that I will always ask for art when it comes to gift-giving holidays. I love having that memory associated with something hanging on my wall. :)  This Christmas, I'm hoping for either this print, which reminds me so much of the mountains in Arizona, where I spent my summers growing up. Such a unique and beautiful place.

I also LOVE this one. I have a small collection started of black and white abstracts and this limited edition print would be a great addition I think.

If you're looking to make a memory with a loved one and give the gift of art, 20x200 has offered LGN readers $10 off purchases over $50 using the code LITTLEGREEN, good through the 17th. They have the coolest gift guides up on their site right now, organized by personality traits: Geeky, Animal-lover, City-Dweller, Wanderer, etc. It was really easy to navigate through all of the great art using the categories! When I had all my picks together, I found myself pairing together complimentary prints.

Wouldn't these two look great next to each other? I'd give these to my little sister who recently graduated from college.


And how about these two for my other sister? In the gift note, I would passive-aggressively suggest that she should hang them stacked vertically in her super-chic lavender gray powder bath. :) I love the way the colors work together!


How about these for my single girlfriend who has is decorating a fly bachelorette pad?


These two are done by the same artist, so it's no wonder they look so pretty together. I'm sure I could figure out someone to give them to, but I wouldn't mind snagging the pair for myself.

My friend's young kids have an encyclopedic knowledge Star Wars (it's hilariously adorable) and I know they'd love both of these hanging in their play room.


I would love these two aerial shots for my girls' room. Weren't these just meant to be hung together?!

Check out the 20x200 Gift Guides for so many more great pieces. And don't forget about that $10 off deal! 

PS Which of these do you think your friends/family would click first if they were shopping for you? I think Michael would choose the Wanderers gallery for me. Or maybe Shiny Happy People? Maybe someday I might be cool enough that someone chooses Gallery Hopper for me. :)

I love that Jessica Craig-Martin photo. I'm running out of room on my walls, but I don't know if I'll be able to resist that one.

What fun picks. I love getting artwork as gifts too! It's always something I wouldn't normally splurge on for myself, but I love receiving. Plus it's great to walk by them and remember that I got that piece after I had Hudson to remember the day, etc.

Angela said...

Beautiful. I've asked for some art prints as well, mostly from Etsy.

Crystal said...

I love any post you do on art. Keem 'em coming! But I am too nervous to buy art as gifts, unless it was on a wish list, of course.

Art is DEFINITELY a great gift for the holidays!

I think all of these would look great in my house... :D

I love this post! I have been thinking about how I would like to receive art for Christmas, and this post makes such a good resource. My favorite piece is the very first photo - so moody! I also love the shot of the bouquet of flowers. Now to check out some more... :)

Have you been over to or yet? They have some wonderful eye-candy for all tastes


Loving all of these, great pieces!

These are all so brilliant. I love the idea of associating each holiday with a particular piece of art.

I found a great baseball print for my husband for Christmas! Thanks! said...

Thank you, Jenny! I purchased a gorgeous print of a fawn for my animal-loving daughter for Xmas. I would have never thought of this on my own! And thanks for the ten bucks!
