Summer makes me want to bring the outdoors in and give the house some colour, some light, some life! For an impact that lasts, artwork is just the way to do it.
I’ve been teasing you with glimpses of pieces for my gallery wall for a couple of weeks now, and today I’m so happy to finally show you the full reveal. (If you aren’t sitting down, you might want to pull up a chair. This is big, friends. I mean huge!)
Our blank canvas: this vast expanse of brick wall:
It’s a large space to fill without breaking the bank, but I knew just where to look. And I did it from the comfort of my living room. (Long live the Interwebs!) I shopped Minted, an online design marketplace of affordable, limited edition artwork and photography created by independent artists from around the world.
I wanted to build my wall with a Summer theme and found everything under the sun — from florals to typography, abstract art and personalized prints, and everything in between.
What do you think? Do you love?
All of the artwork is available in a variety of sizes and framing options and the selection is always growing, so people could hardly blame you for visiting often, perhaps for hours at a time. I love that you can create something one-of-a-kind and switch pieces out as the mood (or season) suits you.
California Dreams by Los Angeles artist Alexandra Nazzari is one of my favourites. I don’t think there’s anything more summery and playful than a ferris wheel, and I felt like I needed some palm trees in my life.
Minted is constantly growing its community of artists and helps many of them get their art into the hands (and on the walls) of people throughout the world through ongoing design challenges. I like checking in from time to time to browse competition winners, and always find new swoon-worthy works. (Like Golden Palm Tree. I die!)
Now that I’ve lived with my prints for a few days, I can’t imagine the space without them! It feels fresh and modern and oh-so-Summer.
