Meet Meural – a digital canvas that will blow your mind. No seriously.
One of the first things that you see when you walk into our house is the Meural. While it’s easiest to describe it as a large frame digital picture frame, it is so much more.
Meural isn’t like other digital canvases. It certainly is not your standard digital photo frame either (though it can work as one, keep reading!) Meural features a TrueArt technology that is a proprietary blend of hardware, firmware, and software—renders each work lifelike and textured.
This technology gives this digital canvas a standard canvas feel – but with all the benefits of digital! It senses the ambient light in the room and adjusts the photo or art accordingly.
A Statement Piece
A few weeks ago, the team at Meural sent us a Meural for our living room. Uhm. Wow. This device has totally changed the dynamic of our living room.
We’ve had Meural for the last few weeks. “M” as I’ll refer to her as, sits on a sofa tables – leaning against the wall next to a few of my succulents. She has given our living room a new and fresh vibe. Why? She is constantly changing the art in our room. Every time I walk in, it’s as if a new painting is decorating our space.
Side note: I am one of these people who changes my furniture around all the freaking time. I seriously can’t stand our living room being one way. Since Christmas, we have had 2 major re-arrange sessions. So this quirky tendency and need for change is why “M” is perfect for our home.
Meural Canvas Review
Why I say this is a room changer? Because how many times have you wanted to change the vibe of a room but couldn’t find the right art or photo to achieve the ambiance that you are wanting?
Meural offers over 30,000 pieces of art (some even move!) for you to enjoy. And don’t forget, you can simply upload a photo via the Meural app – if you want to display a personal photograph.

Horizontal or Vertical Viewing
Horizontal or vertical – whichever way you would like to view your M you can. M can be hung or like we did, leaned against the wall.
We used rubber stoppers on our sofa table to secure the digital canvas from slipping. We have 4 kids – and they’ve tested by knocking the table many times. Good news, totally secure!
Meural has built-in gesture sensing. It’s simple and effortless. You simply do a wave over the front of her frame and she will change the image. I love how the creator’s of M – developed the gesture sensing since you don’t handle art with your hands. Touch screen would have added fingerprints. No one wants fingerprints (especially us parents!)
Meural is controlled by an app. That’s right.
Controlling The Meural Digital Canvas
You can control the Meural digital canvas on both the Meural app, as well as your computer. The app lets you control all major features, and find new artwork for your space.
On my.meural.com, you can access your personal dashboard, the innovative drag and drop timeline, and more. Be prepared to get lost in all of the art goodness.
