Sorry that it’s been quiet here on the blog this week. I’ve had good intentions but I’m working on several projects right now and something had to give. Anyway, I’m back today to share a favorite shopping source with you.
Almost every design project I work on involves artwork and you know that choosing artwork for your home is a very personal thing.
One project I’m working on calls for a special piece of art over the mantel and in the entrance hall. The client is looking for abstract art and doesn’t want to spend an arm and a leg. That’s where Minted comes in.
I’m sure most of you are familiar with Minted but if not let me share a bit about their site.
Minted is an online resource selling a range of products including Artwork, Decor, Stationery and Wedding goods.
Along with Limited Edition Art Prints, they sell Fine Art Prints, Drawings, Commissioned Original Art and Photography Art. Everything they sell is created by a community of artist and designers that are located in all 50 states and more than 60 countries.
Minted makes it easy to find the perfect piece of art, allowing you to search by style, color, shape and type.
Since I’m looking for abstract art, I searched their site and rounded up a few of my favorites for you.
♦ Mesmerize by Melanie Severin–it was the colors in this piece that caught my attention. I love the pink and soft aqua color combination. Color combinations like this are very versatile which make this piece ideal for just about any room.
♦ Poppies I by Iron Range Artery –I was drawn to this artwork because of how bold and dynamic the colors are. Depending on your style, this piece might be too strong for a foyer but could work in a family room or office.
♦ Foilage Trails 2 by Very Marta–I love the watercolor effect of this piece and can see this in a feminine space like a home office, guest bedroom or nursery.
♦ Dash by Katie Craig–I’m all about blue and teal these days and this piece has such a refreshing feel to it. I could see a pair of these hanging over a sofa.
♦ Lush Composition by Melanie Severin–this is the piece of art that my client is most drawn to for their entrance hall. The black adds depth while the other colors keep the piece from being too heavy.
♦ Ivy by Prima Studio–finding a piece of art that doesn’t lean too masculine or too feminine can be challenging. This piece is really pretty and the dark colors can speak to him while the soft colors speak to her. I can imagine this in a bedroom with white and neutral bed linens.
Waiting For Summer by Beth Allen–what a great name for a piece of art and it does feel like summer to me. I envision this piece in a living room or even in a breakfast area.
