How to pick prints for a gallery wall

November 05, 2021

It all started with an email about 🌸"Bloom Baby Bloom" 🌸...

SHOP 📷 Bloom Baby Bloom


And evolved into an idea.

An idea to bring that Costa Rica vibe home to Connecticut with photographs from Pura Vidadise.


"Hi Kristen,
I was hoping to fill the wall space to the left and right of my living room entertainment center with a medley of your framed prints (see below photo). I definitely want to include Bloom Baby Bloom. :)"

- Danielle

Before I could even finish reading Danielle's email, I already was pairing photos together in my head that would go perfectly hanging on Danielle's living room wall!

And then I got to the best part...

"Would you be able to make any suggestions for prints that you think would like great together as clusters for this space and sizes?  I think all your prints would probably mix and match pretty well together with the Costa vibe weaved through all."

Can you guess my answer?!

Ok, yes I know that's an easy know me, I love helping to pick out prints for your home!

After a couple of emails back and forth with mockup designs of my prints hanging on Danielle's living room wall, we had four print winners + Danielle waiting with anticipation for her new framed prints to arrive!

A week later, Danielle's vision had come to life AND most importantly, she now had a piece of her happy place right at home with her. 💕
