Thank you to Minted for sponsoring this post.
I’ve been working hard on my oldest daughter’s bedroom for the past couple of months. It’s so fun to get to the finish line and see your visions all come together. It’s also the time to start getting into the fun details. The final touches that really make a space come alive with personality.
You can see below I had come a long way but still needed to select a few finishing pieces. Sconces, new bedding, and of course artwork!
Artwork is definitely one of the details that can really elevate a space and give it a unique feel. I’m a huge fan of adding artwork anywhere I can! I had been looking for the perfect piece for above Alice’s bed and hadn’t landed on anything I loved. As I was trying to find the perfect piece, Minted reached out and asked if I would be interested in trying out their new customizable fine art. I couldn’t have said yes faster!
Minted is a brand that I’ve loved and trusted for years. Minted supports a community of independent artists from around the globe. They recently released this new collection of customizable fine art that allows you to work with a fine art specialist to recolor, crop, or rotate a select group of artwork. There are almost 300 pieces of art to choose from and honestly, I found quite a few pieces that I loved – it was hard to pick just one!
I had envisioned a cloud painting hanging above her bed so I was instantly drawn to this beautiful cloud art. I loved the pattern and feel but the colors were too turquoise with so much going on with the wallpaper. This is where the fun part comes in! I sent in the artwork with a mood board and told the specialist that I’d love to tone down the colors to coordinate with the wallpaper more.
Check out the before and after on the design board below! Cool right? The really cool part is that I could have changed it to hot pink if I wanted to. I could have zoomed in on just the clouds or less of the clouds. The possibilities of customization are endless.
Here’s a quick tutorial on how it works.
In order to customize, select a piece of art from their custom fine art selection. Select the size you want and the theme if there are multiple options. Each piece will have “Customize this print to fit your decor” under the sizing. Below is an example of a print that has been cropped and zoomed.
Here is another selection that has been rotated.
For my artwork, I only wanted to change the colors. I was instructed to send a note to the art specialist about what changes I’d like to see and include any visual examples if applicable. I attached my design board with some basic instructions, selected my frame, and submitted the order.
Once you place your order, it can take a few days to get an email back from a specialist. I received a response the following day! She sent me a proof for approval and it was perfect on the first try!
Here is the artwork hung up in all her glory. It is honestly perfect. I can’t imagine something I would love better. The whole process was simple and I was able to get the exact design I was looking for!
I’m so excited that Minted was able to provide me with a promo code just for my audience that waives the $75 customization fee on Custom Fine Art orders over $250. Use Promo Code: JENCFA75 – can’t wait to see what you create!
