Wall art is arguably one of the easier decorative elements one can swap out with a seasonal refresh in mind. That is unless you’re splurging on an investment piece, of course. And while it seems great and simple in theory, buying a new print once every three months is definitely not the most practical or realistic option.

With summer on our minds—and the need for more sun and color in our lives growing exponentially by the day—we’re all for emulating the best of the season in the form of an inspired piece of art. 

Short of having it to live out its life until the first day of fall, we’re looking to the pieces that can stand in for the duration of the entire year. Take a look.
