Displaying Gray Malin prints in my home was on the “dream” list of mine for so long! This week I am excited to showcase four pieces of his gorgeous artwork, framed and on display around our home.
I also have a fun feature over on Gray Malin’s blog today, giving an interview and a mini home tour.
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.
I also linked to some other artwork with a similar vibe towards the end of the tour. Enjoy!
Our 4 Gray Malin Prints
Welcome to North Carolina living!

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 when it came down to picking out the prints. I went back and forth over a couple of pieces. I was stuck on how to pick a favorite Gray Malin print 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
No that’s not art- that just the Frame TV.
This is a shot of our bedroom, and we have our TV showcasing some Gray Malin art. I love that particular scene of all the blue striped umbrellas in Nice!
I took the TV down for this self indulgent photo below because Gray Malin prints and that pretty blue linen dresser just GO together! We are actually putting this piece of Beverly Hills art somewhere else (the playroom? our girls’ shared room?) but I don’t have it all hung up quite yet.
Art: Beverly Hotel Series
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. Lighthearted, feminine, and fun are perfect vibes for those girls.

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 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 Gray Malin print will be moved to the wall running alongside my desk, opposite the windows. I think I will be much happier with it there. Will I get any work done though??
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.

7 Gray Malin Inspired Prints For Less
Now that you have dived into my house, I linked some other art that evokes that same happy feeling, without the price tag. We can call them…. Gray Malin inspired prints. How about that?
Before I share my 7 favorites, I want to also advise you to look at Minted. They have an especially great selection of beach photography with those perfect muted hues. You can peek at Minted here, where I have them filtered to beach prints only.
1. Large aeriel beach art from Target? Yes this beauty is from Target. How fun!
2. Love the colors in this piece called “The Sunday Blues”
3. Perfect for a kids’ room, too – “If You Wanna Go + Take A Ride With Me” is fun and cool!
4. This beach umbrella print reminds me of Gray Malin’s striped umbrella prints. This is a digital download, meaning you can actually get the print immediately! You download it and print it out in any size. I like to print out from Costco (they have larget sizes!).
5. Tower 2 has muted colors and would look great in a wood frame.
6. What’s better than 1 aerial beach shot? Two, right next to each other. This is also a digital download!
7. Swimming Pool Wall Art. This Anthropologie art is a gem and I love the wood frame!
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 my whole feature over on the Gray Malin blog here!
