Starting an art collection may seem intimidating, but it doesn't have to break the bank! And hat better way to make your home a true reflection of you than by using personal keepsakes or your favourite fabrics. There's no limit to what you can display or how you choose to display it.

The Fabulous Design File: Personalized posters
"My favourite budget-friendly decor tip is to have one of your own photos blown up into a poster-sized piece of art. I have a 3' x 5' photo of my kids above my fireplace that was printed at a local print shop for about $60. It is unique, dramatic, personal, and affordable!" -- Carissa Erickson
