I have been planning a gallery wall for a couple of years now (you know I’m not one to rush into decisions). Every time we run Collect the Moments and we talk about using your photos I’m reminded that I have precisely four photos of the children on my walls and yes, that does mean none of them are Betsy.
I’ve been collecting frames for a while and pinning inspiring gallery walls on Pinterest. Our house doesn’t have a large wall space you can stand back from but Xanthe’s hall of fame (totally nicking the name) really appeals. We have a large wall running from the hall to the landing which is begging to be more interesting.
I have a lot of photos from my childhood which deserve some wall space and I’ll reflect the mix of colour and black and white in our family photos too.
I’m going to incorporate some art amongst the photos. We have several prints which haven’t been hung since we moved to this house so I will be mixing them in along with some new prints – perfect excuse to bring new art into the home.
I have been looking at the prints over at Minted for a while and I love the mix of artists they have. I am very lucky that in the middle of all of this planning they got in touch with me to ask if I would like to try their service (would I ever!) so I have a little extra budget towards buying my prints.
I do love to basket dance and the range of Minted limited edition art prints has so many awesome prints that I’m a little spoiled for choice. These are a few of my favourites, which do you think will fit in with family photos?
What I really love about Minted is how they have indie artists front and centre. Artists are credited for their work and earn commission on every design sold. Designers can so often be anonymous in retail so this is the kind of business model I love.
Luckily for me you can order prints in different sizes to suit your space and pre-framed which I will be taking full advantage of.
I will keep you posted with my (glacial speed) progress. I am really looking forward to having more photos and art around the house.
