We bought our little home over 5 years ago. Once we signed the contract, it was all systems turbo. 3 months after the purchase, we got engaged. 5 months after that, we fell pregnant. Another 5 months later we got married. Then, barely 2 months into marital bliss we had the twins.
And in this whirlwind of major events, we ‘ve never really had time to concentrate on the interior décor of our home.
(Really, REALLY need to do something about the tattered state of our stinky, old couches).
Our trip to Ubud last year saw us bring back some gorgeous pieces made by local artists.
Still. We can do more.
The white walls along our long hallway are crying out to be decorated with some colour and character. As well as the kitchen. Not to mention the twinions’ room.
But an interior designer or curator, I’m not.
Minted is not just a website packed with amazing designs for art prints and stationary. It’s a global community of independent designers – many of whom are stay at home mums. Running monthly design challenges, Minted also provide a creative platform for artists to expose and sell their best designs.
As one interviewed designer said, “It’s the Facebook for creative people”
I ended up spending most of yesterday’s rainy afternoon, surfing through the beautiful art prints. The more I searched, the more inspired I became. Clicking through the broad range of styles, you can then also click on the designer who created a particular print, which will send you to their other creations.
Personally, I fell in love with this one.
And there’s newborn baby photos of the twinions that I’d love to preserve in something like this:
And being a surfing household, we could get something like this customized with all of Mr Surfer’s favourite beaches – Bondi, Maroubra, Wanda, Brunswick Heads, Uluwatu…
Maybe I could be a curator after all. Huh.
