Morning y’all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed crisp fall weather. To kick off this week {the last week before Thanksgiving, crazy right?} I’m another home decor post. Y’all have sent me so many sweet messages, left the kindest comments, and even asked for more home decor posts. Therefore, I’m giving them to y’all! 

Today, it is all about wall art + decor. Some of these pieces are my absolute favorite items in the room. You know artwork and wall decor really makes a space feel like home. These items bring a room together and also really show off your personality to those that visit your home. There are so many options when it comes to what photos you hang, what artwork your purchase, and what prints you enjoy. What you end up hanging on your wall says a lot about you and what you love! Therefore, selecting these items in incredibly important. They should also be quality. After all, you’re looking at them everyday. Maybe multiple times a day, depending where they are hung. So today, I wanted to share some of my favorite places to shop for wall art and decor.

Framed Photos

Frame photos might be my favorite item to hang on the wall. Some of you probably have this same memory, in my grandparents home they had a large gallery wall of family photos. This included photos of their children growing up, photos of their children’s families, and a couple sweet photos of their adorable grandchildren. I loved spending time admiring the photos, seeing my mother as a youngster, and my grandmother’s incredible wardrobe. Not to mention the beautiful photos of my grandpa and grandmother looking so in love. What they chose to hang in their home not only brought happiness to them but also to me and the rest of our family, I am sure. That is what I feel framed photos are all about! 


Framebridge is my top pick hands down for framed photos. They make the process so easy and what you are presented with is quality. The pieces they create for you will last you a lifetime. Our wedding gallery wall was created by Framebridge and I know we will have those hanging in our home for years and years to come! 

All you do is browse their wide selection of frames, upload your photo {or fill in the approximate size of your art work or print}, decide if you want matting + what color, and place your order. It is truly that simple! If you are doing artwork, a print, or a certificate you will have to mail the item in. Framebridge is amazing though and sends you a package to mail the item in. Told you, they make the process incredibly easy! You can find what items are uploaded and what items would need to be mailed in here

Additionally, they have a wedding shop where you can create personalized pieces. If you’re looking for a wedding gift or gifts for your family after your recent wedding, one of these customized pieces would be perfect! You can see ours below.

Wall Art + Decor

Much like framed photos, prints + artwork + additional decor items you hang on the wall are important. They continue to say a lot about you, your personality, and what you love. This may be about growing up {adulting} but previously, if I even slightly liked a piece of art or print I picked it up. The item was on my wall in no time and I would put no real thought into a frame. Nothing really went together and overall, my personality wasn’t truly reflected in these pieces. That changed with our new space. Joshua and I wanted everything we chose to reflect our personalities and be pieces we’d love for years to come. 

As I’ve mentioned previously, I did have one piece of artwork/print that was extremely important to me. One I had wanted for YEARS and that was a cow print. Luckily, one of my favorite spots for framed artwork + prints had the perfect one. Other than that, I was open and excited to see what we would find to fill the rest of the walls. 


Minted was our first stop. We had heard so much about it and Shannon {our interior designer} is a big fan of the company. The cow print was the first item selected. Then the abstract print came towards the end of our design process. A couple of different prints, photos, and artwork were talked about but this is the piece we settled on. Which I could not be happier with! The print perfectly compliments the room and brings all of the colors together. 

Why do we love Minted? They have a really wide selection of art. To name a few, there’s abstract, animals, beach, floral + botanical, food, modern, and the list goes on. Additionally, they allow you to choose from a variety of sizes for the piece you select. Therefore, allowing you to choose the size that fits your space perfectly. To make things even sweeter, Minted also gives you the option to choose between 15 different frame styles. As if that wasn’t enough, you can also choose borders and matting. Do you want no border or matting? Or a simple white border? Or a matting? Or do you want your image to float? There are so many options. Which is amazing as you will then have a piece that fits your personality + style perfectly.

Z Gallerie 

I was recently introduced to Z Gallerie by my mom. We stopped into one of their stores while visiting family in Raleigh and I completely fell in love. The best part of their store has to be the gallery section. Their artwork is set up just like it would be in an art gallery. Having the artwork displayed in that manner makes every piece seem a little more special. 

To me, the best part of Z Gallerie’s art is so many of the pieces make a big statement! Such as the piece you see above. That dreamy blush piece is as tall as I am. Even though the piece is light and simple, the impact it makes on the room is HUGE. Z Gallerie also has a section of artwork under $100. Which is wonderful when you’re on a budget but what a beautiful piece. They’re even there to help you with gallery wall inspiration. Here you’ll find gallery walls they’ve created using their artwork. Making it incredibly easy to create a gallery wall and shop it all in one place. Or you can customize one to fit your style perfectly by selecting a variety of pieces from various categories.
