Kristin from Bliss at Home has been collecting pieces to create the very first gallery wall in her home. Since many of items are smaller, Kristin wanted a feature piece and knew an abstract art collection she’d been eyeing from West Elm would serve as the perfect inspiration. The fun part of this project is that Kristin involved her boys in the creative process. She says, “I love that we made this together and that it will be the key piece to our gallery wall.”
