Affordable Animal Art from Etsy

I recently ran across two fun sources for wall decor on Etsy. Sellers Coco de Paris and Crowbiz offer whimsical illustrations of animals painted or printed on "upcycled" pages of vintage books and antique maps. I used one with giraffes from Coco de Paris in a mood board last week. Coco's are actually originals because the images are painted on the pages with acrylics. The ones from Crowbiz are prints, although the maps and book pages are authentic...just the animal images are printed.

Each piece costs around $10 so they are an ideal price for buying and framing multiples. I'd consider using the prints in rooms for kids or teenagers or spaces like bathrooms and hallways where more significant artwork can be overlooked or damaged. Since the prints themselves are so affordable, stick with a reasonably-priced frame. CB2, Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Z Gallerie have cool frames that aren't expensive.

Here some of the prints housed in  CB2's Float Frames, which cost between $20-35. These don't have mats which makes them super flexible and easy to setup:
Moose - Clever Chihuahua - Turtle

Here is the Gelato frame from Z Gallerie, you could use the 5x7" or the 8x10" which cost between $15-20:

From Pottery Barn, here are the Lee Gallery Frame and the Wood Gallery Oversized Mat Frame, for large sizes like the ones shown here, prices range between $56-130:
Two Elephants with Red Birds - Giraffe Eating Grass 

Here are more of my favorite prints from Crowbiz and Coco de Paris...

Aren't these fun? I think they have lots of personality and are great for people who are on a tight budget and have too much empty wall space. Do you have a favorite animal? I love all of the Coco de Paris animals...you can't help but smile when you look at those! I also prefer the Coco ones because they are original.


  1. I love these prints and all of the picture frames. Thanks for sharing this fun Etsy find - I've been trying to resist Etsy in fear of addiction...don't think I'm going to be able to hold out.

  2. AAAAAHHHH! I just did 3 of these for a client! (The french bulldog with the bubble gum) They are SO charming and lively in person. Love them!

  3. I love these prints and I would say I never seen before its totally unique, great job keep it up.

  4. What a great find! Love the elephants! I look to Etsy first for art and accessories for many small-budget decorating projects and I'm never disappointed.
