Minted Gallery Wall + Giveaway

17

As I hinted in this post, Ben and I recently redid our gallery wall (see what it looked like before here). We added a lot of art from Minted, along with some of our favorite pieces that we already had--like the cardboard deer head and my DIY Washington state artwork. I really love how the gallery wall looks now. I always had the urge to fiddle with it before, because it seemed unfinished. But now, it fills the space so much better! I also like that everything is framed (pretty much), so it feels more grown-up. And I had Ben pick out some of the artwork, so hopefully it's more balanced now and not quite as feminine. What do you think?

Minted gallery wall + $200 giveaway

If you’re working on your own gallery wall, Minted is an awesome place to get art. Their designs come from a global community of independent designers, so there is a ton of variety (like, seriously there are over 1,500 designs in their art marketplace). And there are several framing options you can choose from too, which I love.

Gallery wall

There are a couple different ways to approach gallery walls: frame everything in matching frames (or all the same color), or mix it up with a bunch of different frames. If you need some direction and examples, I wrote a whole post on how to create a gallery wall here. Either way can be beautiful, but I’m partial to the mixed-up version. I like things to look more collected, and not too matchy-matchy!

I hope you guys like my new gallery wall…and I want you to be able to create your own! So Ive partnered with Minted to give one of you $200 to spend on some art for yourself. Even if you don’t need any art (although, really--who doesn’t need more?), they also have wedding invitationsbirth announcementsparty decor, and more. In other words, you should definitely enter this giveaway

Thanks to Minted for partnering with me on this post!

    Love the mix-match of frames and colors! Where did you put the painting you created that was part of your old gallery wall?
    • Posted by Aileen on Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

      Hi Alex! Thanks so much. We kept it, but haven't hung it anywhere else yet. It's just in our guest room now. I felt like it didn't go with this gallery as well, since it wasn't framed (and since I painted it myself, I think I was kind of self-conscious of it...haha).

    Yessss LOVE Minted! I'm currently contemplating some of the same picks so it feels like I'm doing something right haha! Katie Craig is one of my FAV artists.
    Thanks for hosting this amazing giveaway!

      Yay! That's so funny, I saw you got a big Katie Craig print and I was thinking "I should have gotten that one!" We obviously have similar taste :)

    You now you have a "grown up" wall!;). It's lovely. I love how you balanced out the 3 colors of frames. Also loved how you kept a few embellishments "sitting" down on the frames ledges. It's perfect!

    This looks great, Aileen! Art makes a space feel so much more homey, don't you think? I really need to add some more to my walls.
