Our First Piece of Art | Peak into our office space
November 24, 2015
When it came to decorating our apartment - it's always been a joint venture. Gary and I both have to agree on whatever is that's going to be in our place. So when time came to pick our first piece of art, the same was true. Well this task proved to be a lot easier said than done, turns out that while we have similar styles, there is a lot more that goes into choosing a piece! We took to Minted's Art section and were able to sort by style which thankfully we easily narrowed down to abstract.
We then went through and started sorting by color trying to figure out which pieces would fit best above our desk area.
Ultimately we ended up with a piece that was a little darker, but had some pretty colors to add some more dimension to our room. The easiest part was actually picking the frame - which I was so happy to find that Minted did for you. You pick from 11 different frame styles and we ended up with a darker distressed wood. The Indes piece came and it was beyond beautiful! I was in love with it!
What I love about Minted's art section is that it's a chance for independent artists from around the world to have a place to showcase their art. How's this for a coincidence - the piece of art we ended up choosing was actually by a local artist out of South Boston - Joe Barka.
You'll notice that the piece is actually vertical on the website but we thought it looked better horizontally above our bookshelves and that folks is the beauty of abstract art - no right or wrong way to hang it!!

I was provided a piece of art in exchange for my opinion. All opinions are 100% my own.
