I love this subversive print from Sarah Maple. My sister said ‘but yeah, you could’ve done that’ when I showed her, and I just laughed. I love that modern art strikes up a conversation and if you like it, so what? The gold bear money jar was a Christmas present from Linda Farrow and a bit Jeff Koons in itself – we collect all our change here and treat ourselves to dinner when it gets too full!

9 great places for affordable art:
I love to browse the Art fairs, if not always to buy (I love the Affordable Art Fair too, but this one is far less busy). It’s a great mixture of established artists as well as others on the rise and a real range of pricepoints (and no one was snooty when I asked about prices – I got the impression this wasn’t the done thing at Frieze!).
I love the feel of this website – unpretentious and with interesting collaborations bringing a new wave of accessibility, this is definitely a site to note down.
|Print on fine art paper: €19, Balibart|
|Kate Moss poster print: £75|
Because everyone needs a Kate Moss giant poster print in their lives…And all their other prints are modern, cool and contemporary too.
|Limited edition print, starting from $23, Minted|
I probably mention this site every time I talk about art prints, but I just really love what Lumitrix are doing. They’ve moved more into Fine Art but you can also find some really affordable pieces here, too.
