I’ve got a really excellent giveaway for you today. Minted is the sponsor and they’re offering a $250 gift certificate! Plus, this post is extra fun because I’m going to share a few photos from Design Mom Readers — photos of Minted Art in their homes. I’m telling you, good stuff today!
You probably know about Minted’s excellent selection of customizable party invitations, birth announcements and gifts. But for this post, I’m going to talk about something you might not know they offer — Art Prints. They have a Limited Edition Series, and a Custom Art Series.
The Limited Edition Series is Created by independent artists, printed on archival paper, and available in multiple sizes. I featured some of my favorites in this earlier post, and can also include these Abstract Circles and Dandelions among my favorites.
The Custom Art Series is created by independent artists as well, and includes options for adding words or names, and changing colors, too. Animals Alphabet, Family of Oranges, and Summer Picked Poppies caught my eye.

And be sure to keep reading to see what Minted Art is like in the homes of Design Mom Readers. Such great submissions! I wish I could feature them all.
These first three images are from Naomi Lansing. I asked her to tell us a little about them and loved her response:
“The tapestry piece (on the ledge next to the mustard chevron) was one I loved because it really looked to me like a vintage tapestry, and had a kind of homey feel to it. Living in an apartment, where I can only change so much, I do what I can to make my small space feel warm and cozy, and this print had a nice look that made me think of a little cottage. I also loved that it came in a few variations color-wise, so that I could coordinate the tones with my paint color and existing art.”
“The arrow print was a whim purchase, I just loved the look of it! I also liked that the lines of the arrows go with some of the other patterns I have in my decor. You might not be able to tell from the photo, but there’s a bit of pink in that one, and I’m not a very girly girl, so I liked the idea of having just a small dose of it. I went back and forth on whether to point the arrows up or down, and once I decided to hang this piece above my favorite chair, I thought having them aim down at it would be a fun touch.”
The next two images are from Renee LaReau. Here’s the charming reply she sent when I asked her about why she chose these prints:
“The bike print, with its trio of bikes, reminds me of my three littles, all at different “cycle” stages. Right now we have a toddler riding in a bike seat mounted on his dad’s bike, a preschooler riding a tricycle, and an almost-kindergartener who just shed her training wheels. Though our kids are at very different stages, a bike ride is something they all love. I paired the print with a photo of my maternal grandparents biking to remind us of the shared joys that connect families across generations. I believe this print is meant for a child’s room. To make it appropriate for a common living space, I chose it in gray and, in lieu of a child’s name, I added the text ‘Let’s go.'”
“I chose the wood-grain heart print to hang next to my grandparents’ wedding photo because I wanted to pair something contemporary and graphic with their very traditional portrait. I thought the olive and grey color scheme and the wood grain detail kept the hearts from looking too precious. I suppose I could have hung the heart print anywhere on the gallery wall, because above all, it’s a collection of people who fell in love!”
The next 3 images are from Abby Burba. It was fun to read why she picked these prints (Goodnight Moon is one of our favorites as well!):
“The large alphabet print in Lily’s nursery was originally intended for my older daughter Annabel’s room. I wanted something interactive. She’s 3 years old and loves her alphabet! However, it works great in the nursery because we spend so much time in there and both girls find it stimulating!”
“I picked the print of the cow jumping over the moon as a nod to my daughter’s favorite bedtime story Goodnight Moon.”
And lastly, here’s an image from Liz Redd, and some sweet words about her print:
“I just got this flower print this week and I love it so much! I put it in my room at first but I didn’t notice it as much as I wanted to. Then I moved it to the kitchen, right above the sink where I see it often. Right in the light, on that yellow wall, it’s so bright and cheerful, I smile every time I see it. I know it was a great choice and I just think it’s so beautiful.”
Thank you so much to everyone who sent in photos! I truly loved seeing the artwork in your home and getting a bit of insight into what the prints mean to you or how to picked them out. I hope we do this again!
