How to select your Minted art.

By far and away, and we know it’s a little cheesy, but the best way to buy art is to just pick what you love and what moves you. No advice is really better than that. But we do have a few tips below for how to put together the increasingly popular wall collage.
  • Minted’s inspiration boards are an incredible tool to let you both collect your favorites and also see how the pieces all work together… it’s so fun to go through the assortment and add your favorites and then use the shuffle feature to re-arrange them until they feel just right.

It’s very easy to start a Minted inspiration board… you need to create an account on the minted site first, and then you just click ‘add to board‘ in the upper right hand corner of each product detail page.

  • As a rule of thumb, it’s a good idea to pick one ‘favorite piece’ to anchor your gallery collection.
  • It’s helpful to have 2-3 larger pieces that balance out smaller pieces.
  • Although we do love mixing three or five sizes of prints, unity is also not the enemy. All one size can look really sophisticated, especially in a hall way.

  • Depending upon how formal you want your collage to be, we recommend keeping one of the following consistent: size, subject, color or frame style/color. The more formal a collage you wish to create, the more of those elements you will want to have in common.
