For more global flair, mix color and character into your decor with folk art. You can buy original works right from the source while you’re on vacation. Visit the Huichol Indians in Mexico, learn about their culture, then bring home a colorful yarn painting made by the very same artists. Headed to the big city? You can buy "local folk" art there, too. Just watch for street artists selling watercolors of scenic hotspots. What exemplifies a trip to the Big Apple better than a painting of The Brooklyn Bridge? Once you decorate your home with real art from your travels, you’ll never hang mass-produced art on your walls again.
Our 10-step budget guide will help you set up and stick to a decorating budget without blowing it.
