Minted: Bedroom Refresh

11/11/2015

You might not know this, but I've always had a love for home decor. I'm the type of person who checks out model apartments just to see how they are decorated (and to eat the free cookies, if available). When I move to a new place, my mind is full of ideas on how to design each inch -- from the closets to the kitchens. But I didn't really get a good opportunity to truly harness my decorating skills until I moved into my house earlier this year. You might remember this brief home tour I shared in April (before the kitchen remodel).

But I wasn't especially satisfied with my bedroom dresser decor. The beauty of owning your own home is that I can continue to make changes and improvements to a space until it suits my style. Based on the pictures from my home tour post, you can probably tell that I'm a big fan of light and airy colors like grays, light blues, yellows and whites. So my bedroom refresh had to incorporate this aesthetic while still keeping with my vibe.

So Minted.com was the perfect place to get the right piece of art to pull everything together. Minted art is a marketplace of independent artists and features hundreds of beautiful pieces to decorate your home. With so many great options, it took me and the hubs a while to pick a piece, but we finally landed on this great limited edition print called Aquamarine by Lindsey Ferraris. What's even cooler is that she's based here in the Bay Area! This print with the distressed cottage frame is perfect for our beach bedroom atmosphere. And the size of the piece really brings the entire room together.

I would honestly love to decorate every room in my house with a great print from Minted. One beautiful art piece from this site is guaranteed to make a space come alive. And you gotta love that they work with independent artists. What do you think? And happy Veterans Day!
Here are a few of the other prints I considered:
| Rooftops of Paris | Around We Go | Staredown | Let's Go | Man and a Mountain | Minimalist Sea |
