My gallery wall posts still bring this blog the most Google search traffic -
the trend doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon!
I know this because I feel like I am installing
gallery walls at just about every other local client I see!
I originally installed our gallery wall shortly after our move
into our home almost four years ago - my first attempt was ok
but I tweaked it a bit soon after that first installation.
My wall was even featured on CNN.com - I talked about
While I am still pretty much in love with my wall - especially
the precious photos of my babies, I was ready to make it a tad less
busy, more monochromatic…..UPDATED!
I started by removing some of the more 'vintage-y' art and signs.
I also spray painted some frames white to 'lighten and brighten'….
Because the wall was feeling crowded to me, I added
some more space in between the frames by rehanging and readjusting
the overall layout a bit.
My love for vintage flea market art will never fade, but
I felt like my wall needed some modern pieces
added in for balance…..
I went to Minted.com to find a couple graphic,
modern art prints to add to my wall.
Minted.com never disappoints - their options just
keep getting better and better!
It's important to mix up the shapes of frames in your
gallery walls so this square print was a fun Minted find!
I chose the print below for a hint of color and it's
modern, on-trend hexagon print.
Minted.com is once again offering a generous $150 credit to

Whether you need a couple pieces to complete your gallery
wall or you want to start a gallery wall in your own
home - the gorgeous and varied prints from Minted
