I SPY DIY STUDIO | New Art! $300 Minted Giveaway


ISPYDIYSTUDIO_art0   ISPYDIYSTUDIO_art1 ISPYDIYSTUDIO_art2ISPYDIYSTUDIO_artI’m excited to share some more photos of the new I Spy DIY Studio! We just got a bunch of giant artwork in and I love how it looks on the walls. Our ceilings are crazy tall, and the muted pieces do a great job of filling the space with out being overwhelming. I was going for a more subtle color palette for this studio, but I will admit I am starting to miss my pops of color. I have been finding it interesting how my style changes and evolves with each workspace. My decor getting a little more mature, but I am also missing the quirky accents. I am going to keep working on finding the right balance, but in the meantime, I could not help but share how amazing this art looks, and this is my first time getting more stylized frames, and the whitewashed herringbone and distressed cottage white make the photographs look like a million bucks! Minted was nice enough to offer a $300 Minted credit (+ FedEx ground shipping for US customers) to one of my readers. Just leave comment below with your favorite piece, and bonus points if you pin one of the images of my studio! I will be picking the winner on Tuesday. Have an AMAZING holiday weekend!

UPDATE: The winner is Lisa Currier! Email me at jenni@ispydiy.com for your giftcode. Woot!

    Oh man! I love the minimilism of these prints! It’s hard to choose between the beach houses with the bright pops of color against the simplicity of the environment or the gorgeous large cactus print! I love them both. Having just moved from Colorado to Tennessee, I cannot wait to get my office space up and running and as beautiful as yours. Minted is going to be my go-to for decor!
