When I first moved into my house, I was on a mission to get it decorated immediately. I was doing pretty good, moving from one room to another. It finally came time to tackle my basement family room.
The first item Mike and I purchased for our family room was a new couch. I knew I wanted a chaise style couch that was super comfy. After some research we landed on a couch from Crate and Barrel. Now, if you know me at all, you know I am the cheapest person on planet Earth so this purchase was a difficult one for me to swallow. I figured the price was worth the quality since I wanted to make sure the couch we purchased for our basement would last for many years.
Once we got our new couch, I purchased a new rug (with an amazing carpet pad!). I was kind of obsessed with the rug when I found it. It is a high pile rug and super comfy. One day, I was sitting on my new couch and I looked over to the wall to my right and felt like it needed some color.
My entire basement is painted a super light gray. I wanted a color that stood out, so I landed on this dark blue color. I was very happy with the way the color turned out. I had high hopes of turning this wall into a gallery style wall, but that idea quickly went to the wayside. I got preoccupied with other house projects that my poor wall sat blank for over a year. I finally decided it was time to finish my wall. I knew I wanted playful, modern prints for my wall, so I ended up heading over to Minted.com.
Have you ever been on the Minted website? If you haven’t, I am warning you, everything on the site is so incredibly cute that you will honestly lose hours of time going through their entire website! I was mainly focusing on the artwork they have to offer. They have a TON of cute prints to chose from. They also have an awesome feature that allows you to add prints to your favorites. I was on a roll adding prints left and right to this section as I scrolled through print after print.
Here are some of my favorite prints:
1. On My Way
2. Layer Study
3. Sky Lines
6. Stone Pile
8. The Meadow
9. Green Floral
10. Blue Leaves
See, I told you there were so many amazing prints to choose from! I think at one point I had about 65 prints in my favorites section. My selections were all over the place. I didn’t really have a theme in mind, I was just picking prints based on colors and images I was drawn to.
It was hard to narrow down the prints I wanted to use for my wall, but I love how it turned out! All of my favorites seemed to come together quite nicely. You will have to stay tuned for my reveal!
