I admire a person who can look at a random piece of art and know exactly where it should go in her home. That person is not me. Art is personal to me — a statement about me, my family and my home. So my perfectionist tendency keeps me from pulling the trigger half the time when I do see artwork that I love. I want to get it right and not regret it.
Our guest bathroom has been in need of some TLC for a while now, but it can be difficult to know where to start. Where do you find your inspiration for a big- or small- home decor project? Enter Minted.
Minted is a candy store for art lovers. The choices are amazing. From art prints, framed and ready to hang to home decor and stationery. All of the work you will find is from independent artists, voted on by the Minted community. There is also a section of endless gift possibilities with prints including Typography, State and City Maps, Birthstones and Constellations.
I had a grand time in the privacy of my own home, scouring over hundreds of pieces of art. I favorited about twelve and had to narrow down from there. I chose this whimsical piece that appealed to the photographer in me but also to the mom of an adventure-seeking, fun-loving family. Once I had decided on the piece, I was able to choose the paper quality AND a frame of my choice. Did I mention the prices are down to earth?
My Minted piece arrived in less than a week, packaged securely and READY TO HANG. You heard me, read to hang. That might be my favorite part.
Now, I have a piece in my home that means something to me and it livens up the room. They even sent me a certificate of authenticity, a small bio about the artist and a guarantee if I didn’t love it. Well, I do. So there. Now to break the news to my husband that we are going to paint the bathroom to compliment it.
