Times are tough in Dublin, and a lot of apartments out there are damp, dingy and depressing.
If you're looking for something to brighten up your home, you might want to have a browse of some of the stores below.
They're not all super affordable, but there are some bargains to be found. And art is an investment, right?!
1. Abode, George's Arcade
Right at the Drury Street end of George's Arcade, Abode is great for quirky little bits.
Whether you're after a bin in the shape of a tin of soup or a chopping board that looks like a paint splat, you'll find something you like here.
2. Decor, Wexford Street
Decor is a treasure trove of weird and wonderful pieces from around the world.
You'll find the likes of old church pews, rams' skulls and bronze robots hidden in its dark corners.
It's definitely on the pricey side, but worth a visit even just to look around.
3. Find, Temple Bar
If you want your house to look like an old-fashioned classroom or apothecary's shop, you should check out this place.
4. Hen's Teeth, Fade Street
The lovely Hen's Teeth came to Fade Street late last year.
They host various pop ups from furniture and homeware brands, but their main bag is selling contemporary prints at affordable prices.
5. Søstrene Grene, Dun Laoghaire
Søstrene Grene has three stores in Dublin - Dun Laoghaire, Blanchardstown and Swords.
The Danish chain specialises in super chic furniture, kitchenware, stationery and toys.
6. Stock, South King Street
Stock has everything you could possibly want for your kitchen but upstairs you'll also find gorgeous homeware.
It's a very fun place to browse but be warned - it's not cheap.
7. Dublin Flea Market, Newmarket
Ok, so this last one isn't technically a shop, but it's worth including.
Held on the last Sunday of every month, the Dublin Flea usually has plenty of second-hand and vintage furniture and decor for bargain prices.
