Home Improvement Suggestions with Minted

I have been working at home for more than 10 years and I have also been looking after my kids at the same time. So in other words, I spend most of my time at home. When I do have idle moments sitting on my computer chair and just resting my mind, I would look at one of my house walls and say, “This wall is boring. I think I would need a nice picture hanging there so I could look at something relaxing where I could drift in my thoughts.” Haha! Well, I think that’s too much, but I did think like that sometimes

Art Print


So finally, I made it my unconscious goal of looking for some nice pictures or posters or even wall stickers that could look great on my white wall and bring it "back to life". I hesitated looking at paintings because paintings are more expensive. So I started looking in Minted.com and I found some very nice and simple art prints. They’re not just art prints, but they were made by certified talented artists so I have to say they know what they’re doing. Here’s an example of an art print that I really liked:

Seaside Wall Art Prints by Alexandra Nazari

A nice fine art picture of the coast is really a beautiful sight for sore eyes especially when you're already stressed at work or feeling fatigued. It's a nice picture to drift your thoughts into. You also have the freedom to choose the type of frame you want for the picture that would suit the color of your wall or your room. Spring-inspired art or seasonal-inspired art is also available at Minted.com website. 



Lamp Shade

According to Wikipedia, a lampshade is a fixture that covers the lightbulb on a lamp to diffuse the light it emits. A lamp shade also serves to "shade" human eyes from the direct glare of the light bulbs used to illuminate the lamp, which also serves a very important role on setting the room's mood; it can be relaxing or playful or fun depending on their color. 

Since I have children and I want to set our living room with a fun, family-oriented atmosphere, I want my lampshades to have fun colors that the kids would find playful. Here's an example of a "fun" lampshade I found at Minted: 


Patchwork Watercolor Drum Lampshade by Erin Niehenke 
I really like the pastel colors of this lampshade because it brings out nice and playful colors into the room. It suits well on rooms with white or beige walls, and I also think the kids will like it. 


Table Linens

I've always been a fan of table linens. My mom always used them to decorate the tables especially during the holidays. Even without an occasion, having table linens to "beautify" a table is always a good idea. The challenge is what color or design you would choose to compliment the table. 

Minted's unique designs, sourced from their global community of independent artists, are now available as table runners, placemats and napkins. All of their table linen products are made from luxurious, natural-fiber textiles and are custom made for you in the United States. Please note that all fabric is printed to order and color variations may occur between different orders.

I personally love blue because it's one of my favorite colors, and I'm glad I found the shade of blue that I really like for my table from Minted. Here's a picture of it:
