NEW ART PRINTS!!!

Ampersand Design Studio

ampersand_artprint_1.jpg

When we first launched our online shop in 2011 (on etsy at the time), art prints were our very first product. The dream of having our art, that we have created by hand, end up on the walls of your home, is a thought that has always driven us. It's like sending a bunch of unicorn babies out into the world and we can't wait to see where they land! Today, we're SO excited to be launching brand NEW ART!!! We love to use cut paper, paint, and just good old pen and ink. Color has always been our biggest inspiration and passion. We combined all of our favorite mediums and colors and created one big dream collection!!

Each of our art prints is printed on the highest quality velvet fine art paper with Epson archival pigment inks. You'll be shocked at the amazing color! Choose between 8”x10” and 11”x14”. Frame it, tack it up on your bulletin board, or give it as a gift. We just hope it makes you smile!

We want to fight for equal rights, peace, and justice, and hope you do too. So when we've gotten all that accomplished in one day, sometimes we've just gotta have a little fun, right?

Morgan's Living Room Update with Minted.com

Ampersand Design Studio

Hey everyone, Morgan here, and today, I'm revealing a desperately needed update to my living room! I swear, five years ago, we moved into our house, put the old furniture in the living room, leaned a few older pieces of art against the wall and then it just stayed like that...until now! I had no idea how badly we needed an update until I really starting taking a look at what was in the room. The art, or lack thereof, was what bothered me the most. We have a really great gallery wall in the dining room, but the poor living room, seemed to just get the leftovers. So, thanks to the truly unique selection of art at minted.com, I found so many pieces that really spoke to me. For someone that feels like it's so important to surround yourself with things that you love, it's sort of embarrassing to think how long I left everything the way it was. The art in your home should speak to you, reflect you and also continuously inspire you.

I scoured the vast selection of art on minted.com and seriously had such a hard time narrowing down my favorites. There are SO. MANY. AMAZING. PIECES! There's limited edition fine art, typography art, photography and even foil-pressed options!

I slowly narrowed things down to my top 8 favorite pieces. Too bad I couldn't fit them all!  1 // Screens 18 by Nezha Chan, 2 // Do It Anyway 2 by Kristi kohut - HAPI ART AND PATTERN, 3 // Sable Song by Juniper Briggs, 4 // Connection No. 3 by Kelly Ventura, 5 // Sometimes I Wish Beginnings Were Ends by Jaime Derringer, 6 // Visionary 2 by trbdesign, 7 // Untitled 1 by Jaime Derringer, 8 // Great with Agate No 1 by Kristi Kohut - HAPI ART AND PATTERN

And here is where I landed!!! As you know, I LOVE color. I do. But sometimes, for my home, I like things to be a little more neutral. Plus, as my husband can attest, I also tend to change things out from time to time, so a pair of black and white pieces seemed like the perfect solution to go above this credenza! I went with Untitled 1 by Jaime Derringer and Visionary 2 by trbdesign. I seriously couldn't be happier with these! And do you see those frames? Minted just released a whole range of metallic frames which are to die for! I went with the matte brass and it's beautiful in person!! But check them all out because there is also matte copper, champagne silver, and brushed silver!

For the mantle, I had previously just had a large mirror up there so this huge hit of art is such a welcome change! This piece,  Sometimes I Wish Beginnings Were Ends by Jaime Derringer, had caught my eye from the first time I scanned through the minted art and I couldn't stop thinking about it ever since. The simplicity of layout mixed with the detail in each one of the forms makes it endlessly interesting to look at everyday. I chose the champagne silver frame for this. Totally loving the mix of metallics going on here. Seriously, photos don't even do it justice. But, I can't explain how happy this piece makes me!

So, here we are! Living room update complete! Oh, I should mention that my fireplace also used to be brown, iridescent, crackle tile (yes, you read that right) that was just not working for me. We painted that white (whew) and with the addition of this, most perfect, white, mid century inspired credenza, it feels like such a bright, modern place to call home!

And I couldn't help but throw in a close-up of my youngest son, Lennon, and I, just loving life in here :)
