Art Hound believes that everyone, no matter how small a budget they’re on, can live with awesome art and we’ve created a one-of-a-kind art consulting service to help people make it happen.

Art Matching is a totally new approach to art consulting – it’s easy, affordable and just plain awesome! You decide which room in your home you’d like to focus on, send over photos and take Art Hound’s Style Survey. Based on your aesthetic, budget and lifestyle I sift through a lot of good art and find five great pieces just for you.

I’m psyched to announce that we’re offering one very lucky Art Hound reader a free round of Art Matching! Please note that I plan to blog about the winner’s Art Matching process. To enter leave a comment on this post and on Wednesday, Nov. 10th I’ll pick a winner at random.
