Peace, Love, and Art

I am a very visual person, and I really enjoy pulling together different elements and creating something that is visually appealing. My decorating style is a testament to this.

However, I sometimes have a hard time pulling the trigger when it comes to making interior design decisions. If I decide on something I don't like, then I will have to stare at it every single day. Because of this, Kyra and I's bedroom is not decorated. At all. I have gotten as far as picking out bedding. That's it, and it makes my creative heart kinda sad.

I do plan to put a series of five black and white photos of us above our bed. They are actually matted and framed waiting to be hung, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet. Another challenge is that the furniture in our room is a mish mash of stuff we both had, so it doesn't match very well.

In my dream world, I would have Nate Berkus or Emily Henderson walk me through making the pieces work together. But that probably isn't going to happen, thus I will do my best with what we have and add some fun art pieces and decor to freshen it up a bit.

Enter Minted.

I've known about and loved perusing Minted for awhile now, but I just discovered a nifty little feature of their site: design boards that you can add art pieces to to see how they work together in a collage. It's AWESOME! They have all different style of art that come in different sizes and framed or unframed. Plus, the prices are really affordable. But, I think my most favorite aspect is that the pieces are created by independent artists who wouldn't be able to get their work out through traditional retail avenues. To me, this makes the art unique and special which is totally up my alley.

Using the design board feature, I have started saving pieces that could work in our bedroom as part of a gallery wall. Our bedding has a watercolor feel with orange, purple, gray, and ivory. Since our furniture doesn't match that well, I want to combine some of the different elements in the gallery wall to add a more cohesive feel to the room.

Here's what I've put together so far...

I really love these pieces. I like the little bit of color, but I especially love the charcoal-like pieces of the human body. In real life, I would add some trinkety-type items to add an eclectic touch. It's not perfect, but I think it's a solid start.

I found these pieces in Minted's new art collection. This is just a small taste of the variety of offerings Minted has, so browse the collection to find pieces that fit your design aesthetic!
