Dining Room Design Board with Minted Art
This post is sponsored by Minted. All opinions are my own. 
Fun Fact: when I shared on Instagram that I painted our entire dining room, floor to ceiling, trim and outlets a dark, matte grey, my Instagram community thought I had gone off the deep end. So many people checked in to make sure I hadn’t been kidnapped and was being tortured by a vicious interior stylist.

It’s true, my interior style has changed a ton with this house. I’m embracing a cleaner, moodier vibe that is still family friendly and full of personality. Our dining room has become the shining example of that. While the room isn’t quite finished and ready to be revealed, it is coming together. 
Our dining room is very large, which is why I was comfortable painting it such a dark color, but the size is important for us because the furniture in it is also large. Some of my most treasured pieces hold court in that room, including my grandmother’s buffet and the dining table that Justin built for me early in our relationship. 

My goal is to blend these classic, sentimental pieces with pops of color and even a few unexpected details to keep things fresh.

And how am I doing that?
With art, baby!
I am so excited to have partnered with Minted and their fine art collection to add brightness, personality and a little eye candy to our dining room walls. In case you aren’t in the know, Minted is the place to discover fresh, limited edition fine art where every purchase directly supports thousands of independent creatives and diverse artists around the world
I chose a stunning black and white photograph and went with a large scale print and frame – all through Minted’s super easy website – as the main focal point in the room. Keep an eye out on all of the pieces and you’ll notice that they’re all framed differently. 
I chose floater frames, mattes and frame styles that play well together but aren’t identical. Minted Fine Art is available in countless customization options from high quality wood or metal frames to museum-grade matting or Framed Art on Canvas. 
When you walk into our home and look to the left, the first thing your eye will be drawn to is that photograph. I love the movement, stark black and white against the walls and how beautifully it pairs with a small pop of gold via a picture light.

My grandmother’s buffet is a large, sturdy piece but has curved lines that make it feminine to me. In order to compliment the curves and fill up a little surface area, I chose two contrasting pieces that prop on the buffet. One is a curvy abstract piece and the other is a gorgeous portrait

And last but not least, I wanted to bring in a bit more gold, so I framed this stunning landscape in float mount with a gilded wood frame. The landscape has just the right amount of green, which I’ve recently learned is the perfect accent color against the deep grey walls. 

I think we’re super close to making the final details of the dining room come together, and as soon as it’s ready, I’ll reveal her in all of her glory!
