See all of our looks for less on Pinterest! Thanks for reading!
It’s Monday today and I have a fun giveaway for you all 🙂 Today’s giveaway is hosted by a company I’ve worked with a few times already and it’s always been a pleasure.
You’ve probably heard of Minted from their amazing invitations, holiday cards and business cards, but they have an amazing and unique line of art prints from a crew of really talented artists. I’ve used their prints a lot in client work and room redos and I even used some in my One Room Challenge bathroom makeover. Minted makes it so easy to find unique art with the different artists they partner with. I also love that they offer limited edition art, it definitely makes a piece more precious.
I also added a couple of new prints to the gallery wall we have going on in the living room. It’s been the same since for a couple of years now and it really needed a refresh 🙂
I decided to go with these prints because they really complimented and accented the pieces we already had.
Now for the fun part! Would you like to win $500 to Minted for some artwork of your very own? A winner will be chosen on May 11th, 2015. Good luck!

I partnered with this week’s giveaway sponsor, Artfully Walls, and created a nice, little collection of four pieces of art. I just love all of the moody blues and blacks. What’s great about Artfully Walls is that you can buy already curated collections or just individual pieces of art. They make it so easy to browse and buy, they even have an iPhone app you can use to view potential artwork on your own wall. It also doesn’t hurt that they have an amazing collection of art to choose from.
And here are all of the chosen pieces added to my newly formed living room gallery wall! I had a few existing paintings and prints I wanted to use as well. I think they all work together fabulously, don’t you? I love all the different frames used as well, it really helps foster the idea that this collection was created over time, not all at once.
When we moved into our ranch home back in February I vowed to be more proactive at decorating the walls and not just the rooms. After all, art is just like the icing on a cake right?
When Art.com contacted me to see if I’d be open to reviewing one of their canvas prints on my blog, I was pretty quick in pulling the trigger. I’ve been using Art.com as one of my go-to sources for my room design clients for years. Their selection is unbeatable and so are their prices. So given the gift of being able to choose anything from their printed canvas line? AWE-some.
First I had to decide where I was going to put my new canvas print. Hint – That was the easy part. If you saw my previous post on the living room, you’ll remember this period piece. The ocean scene it’s depicting is nice, but it would have been a whole lot better if it was printed on canvas (or painted of course!). Also the frame and matting was pretty dingy looking. Time to go.
Now for the hard part, choosing what to get. It took me a while to narrow it down, I must admit. There is just so much to choose from! First I had to figure out what type of art I wanted.
I could choose abstract with bright, contrasty colors like this one.
Or maybe I should go more neutral.
|September Fog Descending|
Or I could even go landscapey (yes, I might have made that word up).
|St. Catherine’s Mountain, Rouen|
|Garage de Bateaux a Saint-Mammes, 1885|
Her prints are all very modern and use a combination of texture and pops of color to make an impression. And starting at just $31 they’re a steal! I want a couple for the art walls in my bathrooms, but haven’t decided on which ones yet. Here are a few that have caught my eye.
