When it comes to registering, most people think of the staples: kitchen supplies, bedding, towels, etc. But when it comes to making a home really feel like yours, it's not all about what color throw pillows you choose, or what kind of placemats you get, it's also about the art and personal photos you use to decorate your walls. Luckily, sites like Zola and My Registry allow you to add anything from any website to your registry — including art! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite prints and originals to get you warmed up and hopefully registering for some beautiful work to adorn your walls.

1. This bright and cheery print by Kristi Kohut is so pretty — wouldn't it make an even prettier fabric?! It'll brighten up any gallery wall. Plus, that Rorschach feel is so on-trend. Spread Joy 2, $45, Kristi Kohut available at Choose Hapi

2. Who knew Minted also carried artwork? This mineral print comes in three different colors, several sizes, and a ton of options for framing so you don't have to worry about buying a frame separately. Mineral 03, starting at $22, Lily Hanna available at Minted

3. For collectors looking to purchase an original, it doesn't get much better than this abstract acrylic by Tracey Kafka. The rich blues and hints of pink just melt together. Serena & Lily Untitled 17, $1,200, Tracey Kafka available at Houzz

4. This print of an acrylic painting by Kiki and Polly exudes a subtle richness. In the Suburbs, $22, Kiki and Polly available at Etsy

5. Another original, this daffodil painting is just one of several affordable paintings by Leah Jesse. The artist is known for her gorgeous abstracts and floral motifs. White Daffodils, $50, Leah Jesse available at Etsy

6. This "Rings" drawing is courtesy of a new artist Rikkianne Van Kirk — her prints are only around $20, and this original is only $50! Modern and subtle (but impressive — hands are hard to draw!), all of her pieces are a perfect pick for couples new to the art world. Rings, $50, Rikkianne Van Kirk available at Etsy

7. For a moody, dark and sultry photo, check out this floral portrait by Ashley Woodson Bailey. Alex, $120, Ashley Woodson Bailey available at Citizen Atelier
