I’m a big advocate of printing and framing photos. There’s just something magical about having tangible prints to frame and display, rather than just viewing images on a digital device. And did you know that displaying family photos at home has been shown to boost children’s self esteem?
I love the whole process — deciding what photos I want to print, deciding on the type and size of paper, and then going to my favorite local frame shop to pick out a custom frame.
While framing and hanging a single photo on the wall is fun and pretty easy, designing a whole gallery wall can seem like a daunting process. Deciding which photos to hang, whether to mix in other artwork, deciding on complementary or matching frames, and creating an aesthetically pleasing layout — it’s just a lot to think about.
So I was psyched when Redfin, the real estate platform known for its 1% commissions and superior technology, asked me to contribute to their round up of tips for creating your own gallery wall.

Pretty awesome, it can be a daunting task, but your guide is great!
That’s so cool that Redfin asked you to contribute your tips!! It would be great if you wrote a full blog post about your approach to going from file on your computer to framed print! Let me know if you do! 🙂
That’s so awesome that you got to be a part of that guide! Congrats! Creating a gallery wall isn’t easy but it looks amazing.
