  • Help Me Decide: New Studio Art

    When we first moved into our house several years ago, we were renters living in only half the space. I had a normal 9-5 job and my freelance desk space took up a small area of a room I shared with my clothes (since there were no closets). Since then, we’ve purchased the house, moved into the second floor, and I’ve been working for myself for the last two years. I now have a gorgeous open room with big bay windows, but I’m still living with the little office decor I had all those years ago. Now that Spring is officially here in Vermont (flowers! grass! the green creep up the mountains!), it’s time to transform my studio into the office I have in my head.

    The most obvious first step for me is to hang art on the walls. A gorgeously framed piece immediately brings color and a sense of intention to a room. I spent last night poring over the pieces available at Minted. They have a beautiful selection of abstract prints, which is what I’ve been picturing for the room. My favorite part are the frame options, both the variety as well as the ability to see them with each print. Framing typically stresses me out because there are so many options in the world, and being able to see the finished result as well as total price really sold me on making my first office purchase with Minted.

    Now the fun part – what do I choose?

    Pieces shown above: 1. of land and sea, 2. Mining for Coal, 3. Popsicle, 4. Rose, 5. Color Melt, 6. Watercolor Study, 7. The Kiss of Blue, 8. Rainbow
