There’s one part of a room’s decor that is critical to setting the mood and enhancing the design – the art! I love to select art that fits the mood of a room and my client’s personality. And using original art as often as possible also keeps the design unique and personal.
I love to support emerging artists and Minted is one great resource for those artists online! And yes, you may think of Minted more for their stationery. I know – I love that, too. They have been making my annual Valentine’s card (which I do instead of Christmas) for the last several years, and the designs and quality are amazing.
But now, I can choose Minted not just for my personal stationery needs, but for my design work because they now have a terrific trade program for interior designers. Minted has original art by hundreds of independent artists and they offer the pieces in limited-edition runs. But you’re also able to customize the size, colorway, and framing on many pieces. You can even commission completely original art!
And I recently used this amazing service to get the absolutely perfect piece for my daughter’s room. She is my little baker and her favorite quote is by Julia Child. She was so excited when Minted already had it in their line in the Typography collection. And being able to get it in the color and size we needed made it the perfect finishing touch for her room.
If you aren’t a designer that’s eligible for their trade program, you can still find incredible paintings, drawings and photographs on Minted here. They’ll even give you styling tips and ideas for hanging art! It’s like having your own gallery expert on hand.
Do you love original and limited-edition art as much as I do? And how do you use art in your home? Let me know in the comments section below!
