this post is sponsored by Minted but the thoughts and opinions are all my own.
I was a Minted customer well before we ever worked together, but we did partner for Hudson’s playroom make-over and our living room re-fresh and during both projects I fell in love with the brand and their products even more.
You might think of Minted as a stationery shop, and it is, but it’s first and foremost a shop for art. It’s truly impressive the impact they have had on the art community. Everything is designed by an independent artist. I love that you can buy pieces of art – in various sizes FRAMED. They make it super simple to curate works of art to create the perfect gallery wall. With various frame styles, shapes and sizes it’s truly easy to customize any art print to match and work with any sort of decor. And the quality of the art prints are amazing – they are ready to hang with materials included.
Some of my favorite art pieces are the custom maps, personalized silhouettes and simple text prints. It’s really easy to search by style, color, shape and series. They also have curated gift guides like this one – all items under $50!
They also have a new section dedicated to littles called Little Mint where you can get cute nursery items like storage bins, pin boards, wall murals, art ledges and super cute canvas tents! They have styles broken out by color and print so it’s easy to curate coordinating pieces to compliment your nursery or kid’s room. Brilliant! They have done an excellent job at making it easy to be a one stop shop for all things art, decor, stationery and now for nurseries.
For Palmer’s nursery I wanted a pop of color so I went for the “All the Feels” print. I also thought the meaning was fitting because our journey to him has been a wild, unpredictable ride. Putting his nursery together was such a surreal moment because after two miscarriages we weren’t sure if/when we’d be doing this whole thing again. We waited til the third trimester before we really started putting the nursery together – it was something I didn’t want to rush and I wanted it all to be right. So que all the feels.
We feel super fortunate that Minted wanted to work with us again and gift us a credit to help decorate his nursery. Even if this collaboration didn’t work out, I would have scoured their site and purchased a few things on my own anyway. That’s what makes this partnership so great – I would have used Minted to help decorate his nursery no matter what.
I paired the Minted “All the Feels” print with a simple lines print, a fun garland (both from Minted) and a family portrait and I think it all really came together. The garland is actually part of their holiday decor, but I love them so much think they can be up year round. When it comes to decor, I’m kinda a minimalist but I also wanted his room to look different from Hudson’s original nursery so it was nice to mix it up. We added more on the walls, some greenery, updated the dresser knobs and got a new side table and accent lighting.
I really wanted to mix up colors and textures – so black, tan, white, natural wood tones, grays and other soft neutrals was my go-to. I don’t like things to be too matchy matchy and since this room came to together piece meal I was okay with it being versatile.
Overall, I am super happy with how it all turned out. This little guy is loved beyond measure and I know he’ll be up in his nursery before we know it. He’s going on 3 weeks old now and by the time Hudson was 8 weeks he was in his room sleeping through the night. We can only hope!
Again, the nursery just wouldn’t have turned out the same if it wasn’t for the art and the little extra details on the wall – So a huge thanks to Minted for making this nursery so perfect.
