Minted Art and Mural

This blog post is sponsored by Minted.

Usually when I decide to make bold changes in our home it’s because I’ve been inspired by something. In this case, I decided to paint a whole wall because of a great piece of art. I spotted this piece on Minted and was immediately drawn to it because of the bold colors and abstract shapes. The artist, Christina Flowers, spoke of her art saying “each piece is as much about the journey as it is the finished work and that there is always magic in exploration.” That totally resonated with me and our home, ever evolving.

I quickly realized after hanging up the artwork that a white blank wall would never do it justice. This art was vibrant and needed a vibrant backdrop!

I decided to paint a similar abstract pattern on the wall to compliment the art but in a neutral color palette so as not to take away from it. First I uploaded a photo of the wall and art on to the computer so I could visualize what it would look like before I actually painted.

 It’s worth spending money on a nice brush to get clean lines.

Once I was happy with the design all it took were a few sample pots of paint. I drew the design on the wall with a pencil and used a nice 1 1/2” angled brush to complete the mural. I love how the wall seems so busy by itself but somehow seems to step back and make the artwork pop!

It’s funny how a great change can come when you least expect it. If I hadn’t chosen this particular piece then this whole space never would have come to be. I spent a looooong time browsing through Minted’s art selection. There are a ton of amazing pieces and information about all the artists who created them which I always love to read about.

 …Something I noticed after the space was completed is how perfectly the art matches the chairs. I was drawn to this piece because of the colors which seem to show up time and time again throughout our home. It must be instinct at this point ;)

I’m so happy with this piece of art and stand by the idea that you can’t force creativity. Inspiration can strike at any time and when it does great things will happen. Like magic.
