Art Wall Decisions

One decor element that Thomas and I both knew we wanted, was an art wall. Since we couldn’t paint the walls in our new place, we wanted to add something to the bare space. When Minted asked us if we wanted to incorporate a few of their art prints, we jumped at the chance. We’ve been working with Caitlin and she’s really helped us develop a color palette that Thomas and I both love. I can easily get carried away with girly prints and pink, so it was important for both us to choose prints we loved. We went through the site together and each picked a handful of pieces and then narrowed it down from there based on our favorites and which ones went well together. We pulled colors from each print, so that overall, they are cohesive.

I have to say, it was a tough decision because Minted has so many great pieces. I was a little worried that we weren’t going to be able to mesh our different styles together, but we did and I was really impressed with Thomas’s picks! Be sure to check back on Friday because we will be debuting our finished art wall and hosting an awesome giveaway from Minted!

I started my spring cleaning last week and realized how many shoes I have. I also realized that with all of those shoes, I only wear a few pairs consistently throughout the week and a handful of them are ShoeMint. These ShoeMint booties have quickly become one of the most worn pair of shoes in my closet (along with my other booties). Whether it’s winter/spring/fall/summer, booties are always practical in San Francisco. I also couldn’t pass on these color block wedges, which will look perfect with my summer dresses.

To celebrate the start of spring, ShoeMint is giving away one pair of shoes of your choice to five lucky Gal Meets Glam readers. To enter: Head on over to ShoeMint and sign up for free (if you don’t have an account already) and come back and leave a comment letting me know which pair you would get if you won! The winners will be chosen at random next Tuesday, April 2nd. Good luck!
