I am loving mixing contemporary prints and paintings with vintage art at the moment. A retro still life or portrait adds an unexpected pop of personality to a space, while a vintage landscape tends to feature a lot of the mossy greens and earthy tones that are big in interiors at the minute. So I’m always on the look out for places where I can buy vintage art prints or printable downloads that are both affordable and unique.
If you’re keen to add some unique prints to your walls, here is my go-to list of places to buy vintage art prints, including where you can have digital downloads professionally printed in the UK.

Best places to buy vintage art prints
Jo from Musée Home has curated a beautiful ever-changing collection of vintage art giclée prints that are so richly toned and textured you’d be forgiven for thinking they are original paintings.
The prints come mounted so you can prop them on a shelf without a frame, or alternatively frame them in one of the vintage style frames recommended on the Musée Home website. As the prints come in standard A4, A3 and A2 sizes there are lots of affordable framing options to choose from.
Prices start from £25 for an A4 print.
Juniper Print Shop
Almost every time I see a print I love on Instagram I click the tag and see Juniper Print Shop! Juniper stock a beautiful range of contemporary and vintage style prints that work well in pairs on or gallery walls.
At the moment they only ship within the US, but if you live elsewhere you can purchase a digital download and have it printed locally. Scroll down to find out where you can find affordable giclée printing in the UK.

Collection Prints is another of my favourite affordable online art stores. It’s run by interiors blogger Katie Staples whose home is all over my vision board. (Check it out at @halfway_wholeistic – it’s stunning.)
I really love the more neutral and earthy tones in the Collection Prints range and that’s why I’ve purchased Wetlands II and Putty for our Samsung Frame TV. In fact, if you have one of these art TV’s too, it’s a double win when you purchase from the likes of Collection Prints and Juniper as the file you download will include prints in aspect ratios for displaying on the TV as well as printing.

Wanderlust Print Store on Etsy
One of the most affordable places to buy vintage style art prints is Etsy and I love that you can support small businesses by buying a download from their collections.
Wanderlust Print Store is one of my go-to places as they often have offers to save money if you buy more than one. This pretty painting of roses you see below cost me just £5 to download as I combined it with a new print for our Samsung Frame TV, which you can see in the picture above.
Home At First Sight
Home At First Sight is a new small business I discovered on Instagram which has introduced me to so many gorgeous pieces of vintage homewares that now grace the shelves and sideboards in our home.
Curated by Monika at Style Loves Home, Home At First Sight is a handpicked selection of homewares that blend the modern and traditional with natural and rustic elements, which is what I’m all about really.
When I saw this original painting on canvas by Paul Mitchell art I just had to have it. It’s a contemporary mixed media work of art with a very vintage feel and I love the pop of colour it adds to our bedroom. You can find more of Paul’s paintings here.

Where to print your digital art downloads
Before recommending anywhere to print your digital art downloads I wanted to test it out for myself. I looked into a few options and am so happy with the results I’ve had with The Print Space. They offer high quality giclée art prints at really affordable prices.
It was through them I printed white roses from Wanderlust Print Store. You simply upload your file, choose a custom size and select your paper. (They offer C-type prints for photography as well as giclée prints.) Your prints are dispatched in 24 hours and I had my new art in my hands within 2 days.
If you’d like to try printing your own vintage art, use code 9Q35VO3 for up to 50% off your first order.
Without a discount, I paid £7 for a 200 x 135 mm giclée art print. The total cost for the digital art plus printing was £18 including delivery – so a bargain really!
I would say the result is not as premium as an art print from the Musee Home (which also comes packaged beautifully) but if you like to change your artwork regularly this is an easy and affordable way to do it.
