Morgan here again sharing another partnership with minted.com! If you have kids, you might be able to relate to this little spot in our kitchen.Read More
Hi everyone. It's Morgan here today and I'm talking all about a little update I just did at home. My bedroom was in such bad need of an update that I can't even bring myself to share a before picture here. I have spent some time designing other rooms in the house, but really, my husband and I had done almost nothing to our master bedroom until now. The walls were even the same beige paint color from the previous owner of our home. Nothing was hanging on the wall. It was the room that had just gotten overlooked. Needless to say, I was THRILLED to partner with minted.com for some new art that would set the tone for the whole room!
With the craziness of having two boys, ages 6 and 2, I really wanted our master bedroom to be a place just for my husband and I. A place of calm. A place to relax. A room with a bit of sophistication. Never mind that we end up with a child in our bed more nights than not. But still....I can always dream!
The photographic, watercolor and acrylic art that we chose truly set the tone for the room! And minted.com is now offering float-mounting and matting for their art prints which really makes them feel that much more special.
So, when I got started, I knew one thing, I wanted a huge-scale sunset or sunrise photograph to go above the bed as the main peace. I can't think of anything more relaxing and happy! From there, the color palette started to form. The brass metallic in the hardware and lamp add sophistication and the hints of black and natural wood keep the room from going to feminine. Check out the below image and links for details!
Clockwise from top left: 1 connection no.3 by kelly ventura (float mounted) // 2 Fringe Accent Pillow (no longer available, click for similar) // 3 Looped Ink Blot pillow // 4 Martha's Horizon by Whitney Deal (float mounted) // 5 Acacia Vase by Convivial Production found at Coveted Home // 6 Yellow Connection by Lisa Sundin (with white matte) // 7 side table by Oh Joy for Target // 8 ceramic plate by terrafirma ceramics found at Golden & Pine. As you'll see, in addition to the minted.com art, I have mixed in some pieces from my favorite local shops, artists and friends. I had no specific theme in mind going into this little bedroom update, but I just tend to believe that sometimes, if you collect a bunch of things you truly love and that make you happy, somehow, it all just ends up working out in a room! The macrame is a piece by my friend Jen Walker who just happens to be able to whip these up in her spare time - sorry I have no shop to link to!
So, even though I was going for a special retreat space for my husband and I, I'll just admit now that these photos capture the crazy truth :)
We never get tired of seeing our designs come to life on really cool, quality products!! It's seriously why we do this whole design gig!

Nod is basically the coolest company to work with and we continue to pinch ourselves that this little dream of ours is still happening! We hope you love our latest!
Hi everyone. We have desperately been wanting to put something positive out into this world in light of all the tragic events and division among people that we have been witnessing and watching on the news each night. We have been at a loss for words really. It wasn't until @freelkygivenmovement approached us to design something, that we finally found the perfect outlet. Today, we are introducing a series of hand-lettered "Peace" tanks and tees where the profits will go to the Boys and Girls Club of America to support their mission of “enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens”. We're hoping for a brighter, less divisive and more peaceful future for all of our children. One love. Peace to all. Together, we are stronger regardless of race, sexuality, religion.
Please visit Freely Given Movement to see all four tees and tanks!
If you ordered one of our academic year planners or calendars from last year, you're going to be thrilled to know they are BACK! We have desk pads, wall calendars and various sizes of spiral-bound agendas! We're keeping things fun and colorful with bright colored dots and stripes and we hope that you can't look at a single day of your year ahead without smiling while you use this new line!
