Let’s face it. Artwork is a must have in today’s bachelor pad.
But the question is, where do you find moderately priced artwork that is reflective of a more masculine taste?
There are a lot of resources I have at my disposal (yay!) but one of my favorites that can be bought publicly is the new collaborative collection from Minted and West Elm. The San Francisco based, Minted, picked 162 prints from over 1500 submissions within their design community. There is a little of everything for everyone – from animal prints to painted landscapes to graphic patterns – its highly impressive. You can mix and match or create a gallery wall with your favorite prints in their color variations.
Here are a few of my favorite pieces organized by taste…
For the Minimalist:
For the Mountain Climber:
For the Explorer:
For the Dog Lover:
For the Modern Art Loving Man:
For the Dreamer:
For the Contemporary Man:
For the Beach Lover:
For the Book Lover:
The City Slicker:
These pieces are unique, inexpensive, and they support independent designers and artists. What could be better? You can mix and match them to create a one-of-a-kind gallery wall or hang them by themselves for a minimalist look. Check out the full collection at westelm.com.
