LOVE TAZA KITCHEN GALLERY WALL-5

i feel like the holidays are always a good excuse to get any extra projects around the house finished before you have company over or host anything. the last project we’ve had on our list since our move a couple months ago was the gallery wall in our kitchen, which was killing me because the wall looked so sad as it sat bare and white everyday. especially since we are always gathered around the kitchen table in there. BUT, bare no longer! and i love how it turned out. we partnered with framebridge once again (you might remember the beautiful gallery wall we did in our old apartment with them), and i’m excited to share our kitchen gallery wall with you today!

also, a code below for 15% off your first order, if you’re needing anything framed! (eh hem, holiday gifts anyone?!)

LOVE TAZA GIFT

before we get to the gallery wall, i wanted to share one of the instagram prints we had framed as a gift for grandparents this christmas. (fortunately chances are low of my father-in-law seeing this before it arrives, which is why i’m showing you his gift!) the great thing about framebridge is that while you can mail in a physical piece of art or a specific print to be framed (they send you a prepaid mailer), you can also upload digital files directly (or link up your instagram account and source straight from there).

last year, i had two oversized photos custom framed by framebridge for my parents as a christmas present, one of their five children altogether and the other of their three grandkids together. my mom hung them in her entry way and my parents have commented multiple times about how much they love them. i love gifts that are on the more special and meaningful side. having a special memory captured is great, but printing a photo and framing it, and having it on display is even more wonderful. especially when it can be as easy as a photo from your phone or instagram account!

if you’re wanting to custom frame something special for a loved one this year, be sure to use the code LOVETAZA15 to get 15% off your first order.  you’ll want to get your orders in soon if you want to meet holiday delivery deadlines, but the code is good through february 15th, 2018.

back to the gallery wall in the kitchen… there are so many great sources these days online to buy beautiful photographs and prints, but josh and i decided to print several of the photos from our travels over the past year or so and have them custom framed instead. we started with a food theme (bakery on the water in bourton-on-the-water, england is a spot we STILL talk about, as well as that picture of juliana’s pizza from brooklyn), and branched out from there to a few of our favorite spots we have loved to visit.

we also framed two prints i found on etsy of train station or airport departure destinations, which i customized to some of our family’s favorite spots we have traveled in the US and abroad.

one of the things that is so helpful about framebridge, is that they send you the proper hardware to hang it up depending on its size and weight. you can also see your art or photo in different frames with different matting on their website to help you decide what will look best in the end.

bless you, josh davis, for doing all the measuring, spacing and hanging.

LOVE TAZA KITCHEN GALLERY WALL-8

one of my favorite photos we took this year, standing on the top of warwick castle in england looking down over the quaint village.

LOVE TAZA KITCHEN GALLERY WALL-3

it’s a little difficult to see, but we chose a special white mat with a black core for this photo of josh and conrad by the brooklyn bridge. it’s really beautiful in person.

AND we have a gallery wall in our kitchen and i love her so much! we incorporated a ton of different frames styles and colors on this wall, some with matting and some without, which i think really helps diversify and bring the wall to life. i get so happy when our little family is gathered around this table now, looking at these photos of favorite places that hold special memories and just feeling really thankful.

a big thank you to framebridge for sponsoring this blog post and helping us making this wall our very own.

  7. Elaine

    You guys did an amazing job with your gallery wall. I would guess it is hard to choose which of all your wonderful photos you want to frame but I love your selection! I think you could help us with our too large of a collection of art that we are running out of wall space! So fun that you actually have enough space in the kitchen for a gallery too!

    • josh

      Happy to help, Mom!

  8. Ina

    Going off topic. But yellow is definitely your color Naomi!

  9. Celia

    First the yellow dresser, now the dining table… BUT your new space is getting Gorgeous!!

  11. I love how huge and tall the ceilings are in your new space! You have tons of wall space to do fun things like this!

    WAIT! Did I miss the kitchen reveal?!

    • TAZA

      no you haven’t!

  14. Kerryn

    Hi Josh, can you give us some tips on actually hanging the art? How to measure, where to start, what gaps?! That would be really helpful!! Thank you!!

  15. Crystal

    Looks so awesome! Can you tell me where you find that print/photo of the department hall display board?

  16. MIchelle

    I love the gallery wall. I know you are super busy, but would you consider doing Christmas suggestions for kids? I loved it when you did a couple years back. I always love what you pick out!

  17. Photos are the most sentimental and personal gifts of all! // I love that they include the hardware! // The arrival/departures print is so fun :) -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

  18. Emily

    Naomi! I love the color you put in your hair!

    • TAZA

      thank you, emily!

  19. Larissa

    Gorgeous! The room looks so bright! Love the sunflower picture.

  20. Dena

    Totally off topic here, BUT… Naomi, it looks like you are still doing the fake lashes! Can you tell us how that is going? I’ve heard that too many lashes fall of each time and it ends up thinning out your natural lashes permanently. Last time you wrote about it you said you only lost a couple here and there, is that still true? Has it changed any? I just love how they look but I am so afraid to destroy my already thin lash line? xo

    P.S. The wall looks amazing!

  21. Irene Waltz

    Everything goes so well together. Love the bright table chairs too. Good work!

  22. brittany

    i love seeing how you guys nest in your new space!! and this gallery wall is perfect!!

    So Nice !! Ok, soon as I buy my own house I do the same :)

  25. Alida

    Love this idea, now I must have a gallery in my kitchen!

  26. Kathy

    I love the prints and frames! I don’t know how you decided on what to print as you guys have taken so many amazing photographs over the years. You should sell your photography, I especially love the one from Warwick castle!

  27. KW

    Please mention where your sweater is from,

    • TAZA

      it is from made well!

  28. Jennie

    Hi guys ! Love the new space ! Can I ask what size your table is ? Thanks !

  29. Rebecca

    I LOVE this idea! One question: how did you begin the process of figuring out which sizes of frames you needed, so that they would all fit together so perfectly?

    Such a fun post! Thanks for sharing!

  30. Julie

    Amazing colours, amazing wall and such beautiful frames. It’s funny, I love my photography so much and have tonnes of pictures I should think to print to make a super personal and happy wall. Thank you for your inspiration guys!
