Stylist Loves Christmas: 22 incredible prints to elevate any space

Whether they’re into minimalist line drawings, bold typography or colourful collage, give the gift of statement walls with these stylish prints from independent shops.

Let’s face it: 2020 has made homebodies of us all. Maybe it’s because we’ve all spent so much time stuck indoors this year, but we’ve embraced adding colour, curiosity, aesthetic pleasure and joy to our spaces – and we’ve become more obsessed with art prints than ever.

From single statement pieces to pleasingly crowded gallery walls, prints are an a quick and often affordable way to update a room. And while it’s always joyous to receive beauty products, fashion and food for Christmas, there’s something particularly satisfying about a friend, partner or family member choosing a piece of art that reflects you and where you’re at.

So, inspired, we’ve compiled some of the most colourful, the most soothing, the most original and the most covetable pieces of artwork from independent shops, artists, designers and studios. From Line And Honey’s subtle and mesmerising line drawings to Ink & Drop’s tongue-in-cheek take on the Mona Lisa via beautiful travel photography from The Woods and The Travel Edit, we’ve found gorgeous works for all gift budgets.
