I don’t know about you guys, but being surrounded by Christmas decorations, fairy lights and fireplaces peppered with jolly little snow men ornaments really makes you take in your surroundings a whole lot more than normal, don’t you think? There’s so many exciting things to look at. In fact every shop I go into or house window I pass by my eyes are drawn to a festive focal point by something or other.
I think that’s why I adore having features in a room to study and be captured by – regardless of what season of the year it is. My eyes seem to just love something to keep them busy! This is why I often feel a little gloomy when in January I pack all the Christmas trimmings away for an entire year… only then does everything seems so bare.
So this weekend I thought I’d mull over some options for jazzing a few off my rooms up with some unique wall art & pretty prints… and of course what better place to browse an entire range of wall feasts and other delectable goodies than Minted.com
‘Oooh, what’s Minted?’ I hear you say!
Well, Minted is a thriving on-line community of independent artists… from illustrators, painters, package designers to stay at home mums. It’s a global community full of creative content, selling a unique range of art, home décor and stationary items delivered direct to your door. That’s right… you don’t have to leave the confines of your cosy abode this winter to dress up the walls of your dining room. Just a few clicks of a button and voila, your goodies are on their way. Sounds like my kinda shopping *peering out at a rather gloomy sky*
Anyways, I thought I’d share a just few of my favourite Minted finds with you…
I loved this gorgeous raindrop print by Olivia Raufman. Our living room has very similar colour schemes within the flooring, carpet, & a feature wall. I can really see this piece pulling all those gorgeous colours together incredibly well!
I adore this print by Ana Sharpe – as soon as I spotted it I knew it would brighten up the dining area in my kitchen perfectly. Plus who doesn’t love Macaroons?! *swoon*
Living beside the sea I’m obsessed with anything nautical or beach themed. My house is full of little jars of interesting pebbles and shells we’ve collected over the last few years, which I love! When I spotted this gorgeous piece by Kirby Lee Smith I knew it would perfect in my hall way as it’s got a very similar theme at the moment.
My bedroom has lots of purples (and as I’m sure you can tell from previous posts it’s one of my favourite colours) so when I spotted this amazing piece by Kiana Mosley I knew it would go perfect in my purple themed bedroom as a feature piece to catch the eye as soon as you walk in. I love the huge shade range… from soft lilacs to an intense blackcurrants. Super stunning, don’t you agree?
Of course as most of you know only too well, I have a rather unhealthy obsession with owls. They’re (almost) everywhere throughout my home, so when I spotted this rather striking cutie by Griffinbell Paper Co, I knew he’d be the perfect partner for jazzing up my work area… it’s also a little reminder of the one thing I need more off!! *hahaa*
So, what do y’all think of my top picks, do you like? If so, let me know which one is your favourite… as always I love reading your thoughts and feedback in the comments below!
