J'adore Cafe Fine Art Print
Aulani Photography Photographic Print
This J'adore Cafe fine art print from seller Haute Whimsy (find her on Twitter) is the perfect piece for a coffee lover's kitchen wall. The 8 x 10-inch version of the print is only $16, but there's no sacrifice in quality: It's printed on luster-finished paper, which offers the color saturation of glossy and the fingerprint resistance of matte, without the glare usually associated with glossy.
Etsy seller Aulani Photography (find her on Twitter) doesn't title her work because, in her words, "I don't want the title to influence the way you perceive the image." This particular piece of wall art ($25) features a close-up of flowers. It's printed on luster paper and coated with finishing spray. If you need something larger, the seller offers any of her pieces in 11 x 14-inch format and 16 x 20, for $50 and $70, respectively.

Perfect for a wall in your little girl's room or even your own, Etsy seller Faerie Moon Creations (find her on Twitter) offers this original mixed-media faerie art ($50).
