Minted to the rescue….a space in my home that have you likely have never seen before! (and a giveaway, too!)

I confess, I do most of my living in our home on the first floor.

Our second floor has just our girls' bedrooms, their shared bathroom 
and a bonus room that basically serves as 
the girls' hang-out space for when their friends
come over or they watch movies.  I hardly ever go up there - that is
sort of what happens when you have teenagers…..I know that it will
likely be a mess and I just don't need that negativity in my life ;)…..

When Minted.com asked me if I was interested in looking at some of 
their new art prints, I knew exactly the room in need of some improvement…..
our bonus room.  I actually have never hung a single thing on the walls  -
ok, stop, let's process that for a moment.  The lady with the obnoxious 
gallery walls has a bonus room with NO art……

Well, I thought if Minted.com hooked me up with some great art,
maybe I might be inclined to visit my children upstairs more often - ha!

I sent the Minted.com peeps a photo of my pitiful space and let them
choose the art prints they thought would look best.

So without further adieu, I give you my home's bonus space:





And I couldn't resist including a couple photos of one of the  upstairs
residents doing what they seem to do best……Cause it's important
for designers to show both form and FUNCTION.



Minted is such a generous company - they are giving one of YOU the 
opportunity to win a $200 credit so you can add some art to your artless walls too!

To Enter:

* Go to Minted.com

* Take a look at the art prints

* Come back here and leave a comment
telling me which art print
your would order with 
your winnings!

Enter by Friday, October 23.

I will announce the winner on Saturday!

  1. That was a hard decision, but I've narrowed it down to 4 I like Open an Umbrella, Lost in the fog, Forest Focus, Leaf, and Sundrop. Loved seeing pictures of your bonus room!

  7. Hi Jill - I would order the Fresh Berries print. It would look really cute in our kitchen and I saw some others that I think would be great for our upstairs hallway where our kids' rooms are. The London Skyline would be perfect since we were in London this past summer. The artwork in your bonus room looks really nice!

  22. Hello, Jill!
    Your bonus room
    looks gorgeous and
    I love the Minted.com
    additions!

    I'd choose the "Birch
    Woods in Winter" print
    with the Reclaimed Barnwood
    frame. Right now it would
    look superb against the
    latte-colored walls of my
    own kid's "hang-out" space,
    and later it would remind
    me of Minnesota (when we
    no longer live here.....)

    Thanks for hosting such
    a great giveaway!

  36. The bonus room looks great! Love the art choices with your colors...and I love the sectional too! (would you mind sharing where that is from?) So many great Minted Art choices, but if I had to pick one, I think it would always be any Emily Jeffords print. Thanks for sharing your space!
