. . . for Lauren and Lauren: My Favorite wall in the house

My Favorite wall in the house

I am pretty sure this wall in Addilyn's room is my favorite wall in our house.  Most of our house I've decorated with more neutral colors, which I love, but I love the creativity and color in my kids' rooms. I had collected  most of these things over the last few years and love how they all worked together. I wanted to stick with coral, mint and gold, which gave me lots of things to choose from! 

I am probably the worst planner with gallery walls, but I think it usually works out, minus some extra holes in the wall.  They got covered up with the gold circles anyway!  I just start hanging thing, starting with the big A in the middle and working around that. 

Last week I got this beautiful heart canvas in the mail from my friend Lauren.  I started with it hung in our room and I loved it there, but then thought it'd match even better in Addi's room, so i switched something out and think it looks perfect here.  

Lauren started an etsy shopped called Love Along The Way.  She started taking photos of  "love along the way" and posting them on social media.  As time went on she'd have friends and family tag her in photos of hearts they found along the way and she realized she wanted to turn into something! It's so cool all the hearts she's found and photographed so well (and never photoshopped or adjusted). From hearts in muffins, in clouds, chalk or in the leaf like the one I have.  I think it's a great way to add some love to your space and think it fits perfect on Addi's wall!

I made the fabric banner with fabric I found at hobby lobby, cut in straight lines and tied in double knots on twine.  So so easy and cheap!  The gold frames I found for $2 each at GoodWill.  The hello love, be brave sign, heart mirror and big letter A were from Hobby Lobby.  The unicorn head is one of my favorite things on the wall and is from Target.  And the gold dots are just peel on wall decals from Amazon!  

Thank you so much for sending me a piece of your art Lauren! I love it!  And thank you for being such a sweet friend and encouragement through all my blogging and social media.  I'm thankful for you!  Make sure to check out Lauren's shop on etsy (LoveAlongTheWay) and follow her on instagram (love.along.the.way)!
