If watching Emma Chamberlain’s home tour with AD has sent you into a frantic internet spiral, searching for decor to spruce up your apartment - trust us, you’re not alone.
Her mid-century modern abode is what all of our dreams are made of, and since the video was posted, we’ve been on an internet deep dive to find pieces that are equally cool as they are personal, as inspired by Emma.
It’s true that picking art for your home is by far the hardest of any interior decor choices. And while we’d all love to have a talented parent like Emma’s dad who could paint us something entirely personalised, sadly that’s not always the case. Nevertheless, thanks to the pandemic surging online shopping, there’s never been a time in history where we’ve had so much access to art - and with more choices comes greater ability to pick something unique, personal and totally you.
As such, we’ve rounded up 7 of the best artists you should definitely check out for pieces that will make your house feel like a home.
