Ah, the season of love. The Winter months are both proposal and cuffing season (don't ask), sure, but we also tend to feel the love around the holidays for our friends and family. To celebrate these warm feelings of goodwill, we scoured Etsy for the sweetest love-filled prints and posters to give your significant other, a newlywed couple, or for a friend's housewarming. Get ready to feel the amour!
We agree with George Costanza that, if it were socially acceptable, we would drape ourselves in velvet. Since it isn't, however, we are willing to make do with lusting after velvet couches. There is something welcoming, regal, and totally irresistible about the fabric, and we particularly love how this perfectly complements the artwork behind it.
Artist David Kawena used his skills to reimagine some of the Disney princes (and heroes) as scantily clad stud muffins, and we have to say — royalty never looked so good (or so well-endowed). David created these incredibly realistic versions of the animated love interests from our favorite Disney princess movies, complete with rippling muscles and smoldering glances. Check them out below, and let us know in the comments which prince you'd let into your castle!

We love art (duh) but sometimes get caught up in finding the perfect place to hang it and therefore end up delaying our enjoyment. Don't worry, there is a very easy solution to this problem.
It turns out that art looks just as good propped up on a table as it does hanging on a wall! Try layering a few pieces that complement one another, and you will have your own art installation in no time. Now wasn't that so easy?
We want to see how you display your art, propped up or otherwise! Share it with us by tagging your photos with #casasnap, and you might be featured on POPSUGAR Home. And don't forget to follow popsugarhome on Instagram!
Gallery walls are one of our favorite design tricks. Not only are they the perfect way to infuse a room with personality and panache, but there is literally no right or wrong way to go about making one! To prove our point — and to give you a hefty dose of inspiration — we rounded up some of our favorite examples. Whether you are gearing up to hang your own gallery wall or just love the look, we found one that will tickle your fancy.A mix of faux animal heads and small art pieces pop against a black bedroom wall. Travel photos and inspirational art prints are a perfect pairing behind this Parsons desk. Give your gallery wall a unified look by using identical frames and arranging them in a grid. A perfect example of the old adage that everything you love ends up going together! Don't worry to much about things matching. A bright piece of art can anchor a gallery wall. Consider using a gallery wall to create distinct spaces such as the one over the dresser in this living room. We love the look of this elegant and restrained living room wall!

A gallery wall is great way to add a sophisticated but sweet touch to a kid's room. Although each piece in this gallery wall is by the same artist, it looks diverse and interesting due to the mix of frames. More is more on this gallery wall! Try combining different mediums as well as different-sized prints to create a dynamic wall.
If you've pinned your fair share of feathery juju-hat wall hangings, but if you're looking for something slightly less expensive and a bit different, then allow us to introduce you to our latest obsession. Tiffanie Turner's larger-than-life chrysanthemums are $299 each and capture a similar texture, only with paper petals instead of feathers. We love how romantic yet avant-garde these big blooms feel! Which would you rather hang: feathers or flowers?
What happens when a successful wholesaler steals the designs from a group of struggling artists? Our partners at Yahoo Shine gives us the inside scoop.
While some say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, for a growing group of artists and crafters, it's more like a kick in the gut. In particular, a group of artisans who claim that Cody Foster and Co., a successful wholesaler of ornaments and other decorative items, is plagiarizing their designs and devaluing the work their livelihoods depend upon.
"Monday morning I received an email from a woman who keeps track of as many rip offs as she can find," illustrator and artist Lisa Congdon tells Yahoo Shine. The email contained a photo of Congdon's Nordic-themed drawings of reindeer, polar bears and other animals, alongside Cody Foster's look-a-like baubles. The details are the same down to the intricate patterns on the beasts' saddle blankets. "It made my stomach turn. It was pretty obvious it was a blatant copy," says Congdon.
