When I was first approached with the product ” heart wall” by owner Kathy, I was immediately intrigued with the concept of being able to tell my family stories, thousands of our precious storiess through images in a beautiful new product, wallpaper in my home. If you are a busy mom like me, you probably have a google cloud or icloud full of backed up cell phone images, SD cards full of images from family events, and a shoe box full of the pictures I actually printed. They aren’t in albums though I have every intention of doing that, and I haven’t found the right frames for my walls. Plus, when it comes down to picking the perfect couple images for frames a wave of emotion comes over me and I can’t choose between all my little one’s adorable images.
While I was fascinated with this new modern way to display my family’s cherished stories, I was also a skeptic. I’m not too young to not remember the time of awful wallpaper in the 80’s and how horribly difficult and time-consuming the process was. I’d also seen a lot of decals, and wall clings at stores like Target and Belk, was this just another vinyl product? Kathy assured me it wasn’t anything near what I thought of when hearing “wallpaper” but an easily applied and high-quality product. My second concern was the quality of images being printed on a wallpaper, being the editor of a magazine and working with the top photographers in the nation, dpi and resolution are very important to me in imagery. We discussed the process of building my own heart wall for my home and in the meantime sending a sample wall.
I was like a child on Christmas morning when UPS delivered the sample wall and I immediately opened it with the team here at the Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy and we began to apply the re-positional heart wall. The quality of paper used in creating the heart wall is one of the most luxurious products I’ve felt with a beautiful finish, the company uses only latex ink, so the product is non-flammable and does not let off odors. The entire wall was applied in less than 30 minutes with only two of us working with it, probably the easiest home decor project I’ve ever worked with. The finish and resolution of images are exquisite, literally, every editor who walked in swooned over the heart wall immediately. I can only imagine the emotion that will overcome me when I see our own family stories displayed in my home. I immediatly got back on the phone with founder Kathy and let her know that as a publication we would love to endorse her product and recommend it to our professional community of photographer The Motherhood Society and our readers!
“My heart wall is an innovative product, an exquisite art piece for the modern family.” Faythe Eloise , Editor in Chief
There are several My Heart Wall products to choose from, one for every type of home or office.
My Heart Wall is a Mother-Daughter owned company that was founded on the back of an incredibly inspirational and very personal story:
On New Year’s Eve of 2014-2015 my husband and I finally closed on a family home that we felt was a place worthy of raising our miracle daughter! Although the home was beautiful in terms of its structure, it also required major updating throughout. I had designed many spaces before, but this project was different. Every corner had to have personal meaning to my family. Every selection was highly considered. And it was often that I found myself saying that “I have poured my heart into this design” which was particularly true as I developed the concept for this personalized wallpaper!
The end result of the project is the creation of My Heart Wall! It’s a beautiful, clean and timeless display of pictures of both sides of our families past and our little miracle daughter. This wall of our family memories and experiences has truly become the heart of our home and evokes emotions in all of us every time we stop to look at it. Back in 2013, when our daughter (who I will refer to as Baby O) was born, she also required open heart surgery when she was just a few days old. It was an incredibly difficult time on all of us. Although it has been a long road I am beyond happy to say that she is thriving today and is one of the happiest children on this planet! My Heart Wall is a celebration of my daughter and her joyful life!
Pediatric cardiology is a unique part of medicine that needs more awareness and support. Due to this need and our personal gratitude to those that saved our daughter’s life and those that continue to care for her, every purchase from My Heart Wall will be coupled with an automatic donation to the continued efforts to improve the outcomes for children born with congenital heart defects. Our charitable organizations include the Heart Center of Texas Children’s Hospital, The Pediatric Cardiology Department of the Cleveland Clinic, The Children’s Heart Foundation and Ronald McDonald House Charities. We truly hope that you not only love your Heart Wall but that you spread the word about the need for continued support of congenital heart defect advances. Together, we can save more lives.
