OK, I realize this took me wayyyyyyy too long, but I am so excited to FINALLY share my Seattle apartment with you guys starting with my home office tour. It's been so fun to have a space that is all my own (although often times taken over by my husbands junk-we only have 900 square feet people) and allows me to be inspired and create for you guys. It's definitely small and being taken over by clothes, but I love it! As you will see from the rest of the apartment, we went with a netural bohemian theme. My office has tons of natural light (when it's not raining) and was pretty easy to decorate considering the size. I basically have one wall in the office that isn't a sliding door or windows, so I knew it needed to make a statement. I have always loved gallery walls but have never been confident in my ability to style one, so I called upon Minted and their personal art styling service.
The Art Styling Service from Minted is seriously amazing! It's super easy and convenient and before you know it, you will have a perfectly designed gallery wall. I simply took an easy style quiz so my designer could have an idea of my personal style and get a taste for the things I liked. Next, I uploaded photos of the exact space where I wanted my gallery wall to hang (iphone photos worked perfectly). My stylist (Kathlyn-she was amazing) then sent two options to choose from. She included pictures of what they would look like hung on the walls so I could visualize for myself.
Kathlyn did an amazing job and I actually loved both choices, but I ended up going with the second option because it had a little more color. I didn't include much color in my apartment except for subtle pops of blush pink, so I decided to be a little bit more adventurous with my office. Also, I immediately fell in love with the vintage car print. This design reminds me of Old Havana which is definitely on my bucket list of places to visit.
After I made my choice, I sent Kathlyn the dimensions of my wall and she sent back the correct sizes for each piece of art. Kathlyn then placed each of the items in my Minted shopping cart. This was super helpful because I simply had to checkout (I didn't even stress about making sure I had picked the right sizes).
After about a week, I received the art and Ben and I hung the pieces according to the directions outlined from Kathlyn. Seriously, the whole process could not have been easier. It was SO helpful to have someone put together a gallery wall for me without all the stress. Especially for a girl who has a hard time making decisions when it comes to home decor. I am in love with the way it turned out and can't wait to show you the rest of the pieces we picked!
The Minted art styling services start at just $79 for an art wall and $99 for an art room! It's seriously like having your own personal interior designer minus the insane cost. I couldn't recommend it more.
