My best tip to sourcing and discovering great pieces for your home is to follow a few artists on Instagram. Instagram is a great way to discover so many fun and interesting things. I love how the site generates new names based on those you already follow. If you're not sure who to follow, here's some of my personal faves. Amanda Talley (she painted the piece in our living room-top photo). Kerri Rosenthal - she's the artist who painted the bright yellow heart painting in our foyer above. Carter Kustera did the charming silhouettes in our front stairway. (You can read more about those three pieces here.)

Personally, I also love to frame my kid's art and also mementos in lieu of a painting or print. Vintage scarves and pieces of colorful printed fabric lend themselves best to this sort of project but as long as it's meaningful, you can't go wrong.
I've also found some beautiful artwork over at Serena and Lily, One Kings Lane, Etsy, Horchow and just recently Minted. Here's a round up of some of the art available at these sources that I absolutely love!
