This week I have a fun feature over on Gray Malin’s blog, giving a mini home tour. I also gave a special little interview! We are excited to showcase four new pieces of his gorgeous artwork, framed and on display around our home.
Although we did not partner on this post, with all this beautiful art I figured a little home tour of my own was definitely in order! I linked over to his blog with my interview at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!

Gray Malin prints are all recognizable- they evoke a positive, lighthearted energy. His artwork is so cheerful and fun! Much of his photography focuses on breathtaking far-flung destinations, making travel look picture perfect.
Of course it was so hard to choose. I went back and forth over a couple of prints. I was stuck on how to pick a favorite without regretting not picking another fav.
The question is: do you pick out a print from a location you have visited that is special to you? Or, do you choose art from a location on your bucket list so you can dream about it?
You will notice a few prints are not consistent in the GM tour with what we have in our house. We ended up moving a few things around, and I love the end result!
The Living Room Print
For the living room, we put a fun slightly nostalgic print up. This art was in a spot that our family would be walking by daily, probably staring at hundreds of times over the years.
This print was actually the hardest to pick out. I wanted something fun and light hearted – travel perhaps, but not overly beachy, nothing with people in it! The print also needed to be somewhat neutral so that it will have lasting power.
We ended up picking this gem from the Beverly Hills Hotel Series. I love the vintage mint green suitcases!
The Gray Malin Print For Our Bedroom
Art: Beverly Hotel Series
This is a shot of our bedroom, and we typically have our TV in this spot because it is directly in front of the bed. I took the TV down for these self indulgent photographs because Gray Malin prints and that pretty blue linen dresser just GO together! Someone tell my husband this means we need the Frame TV so we can have the best of both worlds?
Shop: Blue Dresser
I love the fabulously dressed vintage women in this photo, and how they are all ready to head out on the town. It is a little nostalgic in a feel good way. This is going in my daughter’s room above her dresser. Lighthearted, feminine, and fun are perfect vibes for those girls.
I’ll be sure to share those photos here once we move this print over there! But for now, I don’t really miss my TV!

Artwork In The Office
I’ve been playing around with the design in my (okay, okay, our) office. This room is in the in between stage for sure. Right now we are all at home, but we have built in cabinets and shelving coming along the back wall once life goes back to normal times. My office needs storage to keep little hands off of items left out on my desk!
We put up a Gray Malin print from his Capri series for this room. This print is called La Fontelina Loungers, and it is so, so happy! For now we have this displayed on the back wall. It is striking and I love the blue umbrellas. We went with the large to make this a showcase piece and I love it!

I like to keep things honest here and I actually don’t really love that I can’t see this art from my desk. Coming in the front door there is a direct view of the piece, which is nice. But, I find it a little sad I can’t look at my favorite art while working!
When the builtins go up, this gorgeous print will be moved to the wall running alongside my desk, opposite the windows. I think I will be much happier with it there. I’ll be able to sit at my desk day dreaming with my favorite print in view!

Gray Malin In My Boy’s Room
Above my son’s bed we went with one of the more iconic Gray Malin prints, an aerial beach shot of Surfside, Nantucket. With so many beach photos, it was a chore trying to pick one out!
This particular print is a beach our family has vacationed at recently enough so that all the kids actually remember the trip. This art conjures up special memories for all of us, so it felt appropriate to put it in my oldest son’s room. I love the colors and how the little people and objects on the beach look like patterns.
I hope you enjoyed this peek at all this pretty artwork! Does it make you want to book a flight to somewhere fun? Click here to view the whole feature over on the Gray Malin blog.
