Living Room Progress: Minted Art

Minted Art | Love Lola

You guys. I am geeking out over how our living room is coming together. But man, oh man, has it been a process. I don’t know about you, but I have major design OCD. (Did I say major!?) I rethink things once, rethink them twice, then rethink them again. Which is exactly what I did when deciding on a piece of art to hang above the couch. The wall behind the couch in our living room flows straight into the kitchen, so it was important for me for everything to stay cohesive. I originally thought about doing a gallery wall here, but the wall is so big and just the thought of putting together a gallery wall stressed me out. (so much work, right???).

I considered a neutral macrame piece, but in the end decided that we really needed the color from an art print. The only trick was that our rug has so much pattern and color, that we didn’t want the art to clash. Since our rug has shades of mauve, gray, and pink, what the room was really lacking was blue. Once we added the minty blue couch, I felt like I needed some deeper shades of blue to really anchor the room. But once again, we didn’t want the art to clash with the rug, and we didn’t want it to take too much attention away from our other bold statement pieces – the rug, our fiddle leaf fig, and our couch.

I envisioned a peace that whispered a gentle hello when you walked in. A piece that filled the room with soothing background noise, but wasn’t so loud you couldn’t think. I searched and searched on Minted using their filter feature to browse through all of their blue, pink and abstract prints. I saved all of the prints that really spoke to me under “my favorites” in Minted and then looked through them with Hayden. We finally landed on this abstract and I couldn’t be more pleased. It is everything I dreamed of and more. It’s the perfect combination of shades of blue and pink, and complements the rug and couch perfectly (I think!). It is so gentle up there on the wall and is killing me softly (in the best way!).

After the whole art shebang, I am officially obsessed with Minted and am still constantly adding art pieces to my favorites folder, as I dream of decorating more spaces in our home. Since there are so many pieces I love, I’ve linked some of my other favorites below!

Rainbow Overalls Dress

So I LOVE overalls, i adore them on the kids and I have a pair myself. I had this plans of drafting my own pattern of *proper* overalls because all the patterns I had seen weren’t really the style I wanted. I did a *fancy* version for my Bright & Bold lil luxe mini collection but I didn’t have any *traditional* ones.

and then, i don’t even know how, i found the I Dig Dungarees as soon as they were released. I didn’t even know the designer, but after buying them (right away) I really, really, recommend Made by Jack’s Mum (i haven’t tried any other patterns from MBJM but if you’re sewing for a boy I would really check out the others!). The attention to detail in both the pattern and the instructions is something I super appreciate when I’m trying to sew things that are more complicated than a pair of shorts or a shirt.
