Minted in the House: $50 Giveaway!

When I say “Minted in the House,” I’m not talking about Tiffany’s box blue walls and seafoam sofas.  I’m talking about Minted – purveyor of pretty paperie & luscious letterpress – who, lucky us (!) has also just added a baller collection of wall art to their repertoire.  So in honor of their newest endeavor, we thought we’d play a little curation station and handpick some of our favorites to get your juices flowin’… cause we’re doing a $50 Minted Giveaway!  (Details at bottom of post…)

Salinity – yep – looks about like my life right now. | Striped Suit – worn by someone named Claudette, bien sûr. | Staredown – aka Mooooooo.  Perfect for a guy’s abode… or mine – this is awesome.  | Rooftops of Paris – le sigh.  Je hear this playing. | California Dreams – when I look at that pink sky, I can almost smell salty ocean air.

Peonies in Vase – Because peonies are the prettiest, as is this art. | Highway Wildflowers – The bright pops of color conjure a feeling of vibrancy that just makes me happy. | Twisted Horizon – The equivalent of 5 valiums, right there. | Runaway – Sooooth that soul, Amanda.  Staring at this, just for a moment, takes me back to my Caribbean honeymoon.  Sigh. | Ligurian Houses – Add this painting to any room and bring it alive.

In the market to send some good ‘ol fashioned mail?  Here’s what we suggest.  If yoooooooouuu…

I couldn’t agree more. Maria, please send us an email at with your address, and we’ll promptly send you your delightful new book.  And while we’re talking delightful, last week was our fave designer’s book signing in LA, and it didn’t disappoint.  Mainly because Nathan Turner is one of the most gracious people… and of course, refined-yet-warm, hilarious-with-a-touch-or-two-of-class. Just the nicest person.  A quick snapshot of us from the book party:

Anywho, thanks everyone for your lovely thoughts on Nathan and his decor style, and thanks to Nathan for offering to sign the book for this fun contest!
