Gallery Wall Planning with Minted

Now that I’ll have more walls to decorate in my new place, I’m planning to do another gallery wall in addition to the one I already have. I wanted something colorful and fun, so I chose a mix of prints and photos and can’t wait to see it come together. Most of the photos in my current gallery wall are the same size, so I wanted to mix it up a bit with this one. This is my initial idea for the new gallery wall:

The Paris photo, tapestry print and watercolor print are all 16×20 and the rest are 8×10. I might put it in a slightly different layout once I can visualize it all in person, but at the moment, I’m really liking this arrangement. I also picked out some great frames for each print but I’ll reveal those when the actual gallery wall is installed in my new place.

I found all of these photos and prints on Minted and they have a fantastic selection of art to choose from, as well as affordable framing. They should all be shipping out soon and will be on the wall approximately 24 hours after I move into the new place ūüôā I am always anxious to get art on the wall right away when I move into a new place, but am especially excited for these new prints, so stay tuned for the full reveal in a couple weeks!

Shop the gallery wall:
Pineapple print // Floral arrangement // Paris print 
Vase of flowers // Floral art // Penguin
Tapestry // Watercolor print

Minted will be providing me with the art for this gallery wall, but all opinions, reviews and tips are my own. If you’re interested in sponsoring a post or advertising, please contact me here.

Shop Love: Anna With Love

Continuing with the Shop Love series… I think this will become a weekly Thursday occurrence! I can’t rave enough about Anna With Love’s print shop. If I had an unlimited budget, I would literally buy every single item. Fortunately, her prints are very reasonably priced! I love her New York and Paris series the most, but every photo is unique and gorgeous. These would be a great gift or just a new addition to your gallery wall at home. ¬†I’ll definitely have to scour over them to pick a favorite or two to order. Just a few of my many favorites below (all photos by Anna With Love):

Year One: Entryway Updates

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m starting this series of how my apartment has progressed since I first moved in! Starting things off with the entryway.

What I’ve done to this area:

  • Hang art
  • Add rug
  • Storage solution for coats, bags, umbrella: over door
  • Add gold polka dot wall decals

Still on the list:

  • Change light fixture- I’m hoping to take off the ugly fluorescent one and switch it out for a small globe or pendant in the next few months!

Stay tuned tomorrow for the closet progress!
