I'm so excited to finally reveal my gallery wall with Minted! Putting the finishing touches on my new apartment has been a process and while I'm not very patient, it's also something I haven't wanted to rush. I've had bare walls in my living room for almost six months and I'm so happy to finally have the perfect backdrop for the space.
For the past few months, I had been debating exactly what I wanted to do with the wall above my sofa—one large statement piece, a few medium pieces, gallery wall, etc. Creating a gallery wall was the most exciting to me but it was also the most daunting. How do you know what sizes will fit and mix and match well? How will everything be placed together? Colors, canvas size, matting, etc—I got overwhelmed thinking about starting the task.
I've always known about Minted and have frequently perused their site and even followed some of the artists they feature. When I had the opportunity to try out their new Art Styling Service, I knew it was the perfect way to go.
What is Minted's Art Styling Service?
This is so cool. Minted offers personal art styling where you work with an Art Stylist to curate a selection just for you and your home. Essentially, you take a quiz to help them understand your style, upload photos of your space and you're paired with a Stylist who creates custom renderings based on your personal preferences.
You actually send a photo of the wall you want to have styled and they send back photoshopped concepts with the art in place, which really helps with the visualization process and final decision making. Any other indecisive ones out there? The service starts at just $79, you give them your budget for the project and basically—it's amazing.
I have to be honest, I'm just a little bit crazy (picky) and the idea of someone else creating something for my home made me a bit nervous. I didn't want to feel like I did not have a hand in creating my gallery wall but that wasn't the case at all! My Stylist began with renderings for two concept options based on my preferences and I was blown away by how well she nailed my style.
My Stylist would send a rendering and was incredibly receptive to my questions and concerns and was happy to work with me to make adjustments until I was completely satisfied. It's also SO fun to get your own little pdf of renderings back and see how the artwork looks in your own space. Below is my final mockup that I approved.
One thing that also made it incredibly helpful was the hanging instructions. You give them the dimensions of your wall in the very beginning and at the end you receive instruction on how to hang everthing, which was SO helpful.
I feel so happy to finally have my little space come together and love how stress-free the process was thanks to Minted. If you have a space you're looking to have styled, I highly recommend looking into their Styling Service. Hassle and stress-free are my favorite ways to be and it's so amazing to see the final product come together in your home.
