It is nothing short of a dream come true to announce that I have partnered with Minted (!) to create this dreamy, yet sophisticated gallery wall in my very own family room. I was craving energy, personality and color in this space and this gallery wall did all of that for me. This is the beauty of art, isn't it?
My theme centered around women. Strength. Poise. Energy. Sisterhood. I blended black and white with color, framed in gold. I was drawn so much to each of these pieces for different reasons but one, subconsciously was (I didn't realize it until after I curated all the pieces) - most of the women aren't looking at the camera. They are moving, resting, playing, in thought, beautiful. I LOVE this collection so much. So much. There's an element of storytelling that these pieces bring that have made it a beautiful space to relax and feel inspired. Exactly what a gallery wall should do in a room.
Love this art as much as I do? Find my curated collection here:
Okay, let's talk about Minted. Minted is an incredible design marketplace that sources creative content from a global community of fully independent artists, and then sells the best content in the form of art, home décor, and stationery, directly to consumers. As a designer and a consumer, I can honestly say that I love Minted. I source products for myself and my clients from Minted all. the. time.
And I love the Minted Trade Program. LOVE IT. They make it easy for me. Why? Here, let me tell you just a few reasons.
I am never without human support (shout out to Emily - LOVE HER!)
Free domestic shipping (and all the clients said...amen!)
Complimentary curation service - you can email the team and they can give you ideas and help you with any project
No minimums (and all the designers said...amen!)
A robust, beautiful selection of art made by some of the most talented artists in the world.
I could go on and on - I love the program and if you are an interior designer, I strongly encourage you to apply to be a trade vendor. You won't regret it; neither will your clients.
Finally, let's talk gallery walls. If you know me, you know I love them more than s'mores on a fall night in the midwest. Okay, maybe not that much. But, I love them. And here's what I know to be true - most people are scared of them. They are intimidating, you don't know where to start, you can't visualize it, it feels overwhelming.

It's amazing what just a few small changes can do to a room. They can take it from being the least visited place in your home to your new found oasis. Thank you, Minted.
