Art makes a house a home. Without walls adorned in art, a house never feels quite lived in or personal enough. A great art collection can be expensive, but it doesn’t have to be! So we sought out to remedy that by partnering with Minted – the best affordable art online.

We went on a mission to furnish the walls of a gorgeous coastal-chic pad with accessible, affordable artwork and wound up partnering with the wonderful people at to curate a gallery of the best independent artists with prints starting as low as $21.


Each piece in our Lori Dennis curated collection was hand-selected by our team to comprise an eclectic mix of coastal photography and abstract paintings and etchings.

Minted Art connects consumers like you and me with independent artists from all over the world bringing a fresh, affordable perspective to the market. 

GOING FOR A SWIM by WHITNEY DEAL | There is nothing like taking that first dive into the pool for a swim -- going from dry to completely immersed in water.

The Lori Dennis curated collection includes pieces from artists and photographers with severe cases of wanderlust, like Dallas-based photographer Erica Connolley or San Francisco-based graphic designer and painter, Paper Dhalia.

SUNRISE SUNSET by PAPER DAHLIA | I enjoy drawing and I am inspired by the beauty of nature. I was inspired to create a piece that depicts the beauty and sameness of sunsets and sunrises. I choose to do this in a minimal style that will suit many different types of home decor.

PINK FOLIAGE by FERNANDA MARTIEZ | Pink foliage born from the idea of contrasting vivid and bright colors with shadows in grey and black. This art work is the representation of a dreamy dessert scene where a pink plant is reflecting the sun light. The original work was created with gouache and acrylic on paper, to give it a matte finish.

Growing up, my husband spent almost every summer in Portugal visiting his extended family. It was his home away from home, his favorite place in the world. He took me there for the first month of our marriage, and I too fell in love with that incredible country. I was inspired by everything from the hand painted tiles to the fresh ocean air. Fonte Mourisca (meaning "Moorish Fountain") was taken in the beautiful town of Sintra. This piece is part of a series titled "Verde", which explores variations of the color green in and around Lisbon.

The familiar feeling of ocean wind hitting your face and hearing the wind lapping a palm high above your head...and as you open the door to your darkened motel room you can faintly make out the sound of waves hitting a shore...Soft summer sun hitting a white washed and time worn motel facade.


While on Christmas vacation in Oahu with my family, we went for a walk down Waikiki Beach on Christmas Day. We stumbled across a predominately pink hotel and my photo radar led me astray. I walked the entire circumference of the building shooting the tropical plants against the pink edifice and finding inspiration around every corner. I loved the contrast of the deep green tones from the plant against the soft pink wall.

ARCHES by Ilze Lucero | I have passion for photography and capturing world as it draws me in. This beautiful architecture is timeless in its simplicity and elegance. Leading lines and gateway draws the eye into the far doorway. Bright and neutral palette works great for clustering with other art pieces, either in neutral colors or with pop of color. Since this image is monochromatic and light, it will work great as an accent with darker interiors, or subtle highlight in brighter interiors.

COLORFUL BEACH by Baumbirdy | During an early morning walk I stumbled a cross this wonderfully vibrant citrus beachfront property. Its tropical exterior and beachfront location give me an instant sense of relaxation and rejuvenation.This color photograph makes for a wonderful statement piece, or a beautiful addition to any existing collection.
