A Family Tradition: How To Choose Modern Art for a Historic Home Sponsored by Minted

A Family Tradition: How To Choose Modern Art for a Historic Home Sponsored by Minted

Collecting art is one of my favorite pastimes as a child. I have vivid memories of picking art with my parents at art galleries and thrift stores to find just the perfect match. My parents raised me around traditional southern and African American art and it influences the decor in my home today. From choosing frames to selecting sizes, an appreciation of art was passed down from my grandparents to my parents and now to me. The importance of art is now something I hope to pass down to my son and thankfully my husband has indulged this passion and has embraced it as a tradition. On any weekend, we are constantly searching for art at our local antique stores, farmer’s markets and online. Through lots of curating and exploring, we have been able to create our own in-home gallery and constantly edit and add art to our walls on a weekly basis. Today I have partnered with Minted on a Modern Art Gallery wall for my historic home. I am sharing a little of my love for art and my family and giving some of my tips on how to choose modern art for a historic home.

A Family Tradition: How To Choose Modern Art for a Historic Home Sponsored by Minted

 

 

Lowcountry Inspired: Growing up in the Lowcountry, you are surrounded by the truest and purest form of beauty in nature. From 100-year-old live oak trees to miles and miles of marshland, so much of my childhood centers around nature and these pieces remind me of that. Whether they are modern interpretations of botanical style southern art or bold prints of classic palmetto leaves, these pieces remind me of the beauty of nature and bring a little bit of outside into my home. I suggest that all are you choose brings an element of nostalgia, especially when choosing art for a family home. Minted’s latest collection full of independent artists, had had the perfect mix of modern art to complement my historic Lowcountry home.

 

 

 

 

Mixing Modern and Traditional: In my personal decor style, I am all about mixing modern and traditional decor. With these pieces, I love everything about the modern style of art but infused traditional style into the selection of the frames. On the bottom, I chose to create symmetry by using the same print and frame to anchor the gallery wall and for the top row, I chose a mixture of antique-inspired frames. Minted offers a ton of great options for framing and sizes and made it really easy to see how they would look with the art. I would highly suggest using their tool to see your piece in various frame styles to figure out what matches the style of the art as well as how it would look in your home.

 

 

Family Is Always What Influences My Art Selection: I always select art with my family in mind. These pieces are items I hope to pass down to my child and be a part of the memories I make with my family and friends. When collecting art, I choose art that resonates with my upbringing the South Carolina Lowcountry, whether it reminds of the traditional food, nature or the culture, my family is always top of mind in all of my art selections. 

 

 

 

A Story To Tell: 

I love art that has a story to tell.  For me, this collection of pieces tells the story of my childhood and represents something I want to share with not only family but anyone who visits my home. I have placed this gallery wall in my dining room, which is where I love to entertain guests and I hope to use this wall of art as a way to express my appreciation for the natural beauty of the Lowcountry and the story of my childhood through art.
