Taking a photo is easier than ever with the rise of smartphones in the last decade and boom in professional photography. Incorporating these photos of treasured memories and loved ones into your home’s décor can add a truly personal touch. This can be done in various ways, from wall stickers that create a collage feature wall to a simple and effective grid display of just a few photos or a single photo printed onto canvas, creating a stunning centerpiece in any room.
Create a feature wall
A feature wall is a great option if you have a lot of different photographs that you want to display, such as of friends and family. One of the best ways to do this is with wall stickers of your photographs and sticking them next to each other in rows to have a complete wall of photos. This looks great on a chimney breast, on a free wall in a dining room or in bedrooms and is a perfect way to add a personal touch to your home. You can also add decorative wall stickers in different shapes or quotes to fit in with the theme of your wall.
Lots of decorative frames
There are countless frame designs available to display your photos in, ranging from simplistic to ornate, different materials and single or multiple frames that are perfect for making a picture collage. Frames are a good way to decorate a large space while keeping it interesting and personal by using your own photographs. Pick lots of different styles of frames, keeping to just one of two colors so that it doesn’t become overwhelming, to display your photos. You can hang them in rows or patterns, or opt for a random order, depending on your preference. Different size frames will also keep it interesting, even if all your photographs are printed at the same size and you use a border to make them fit.
Keep it simple
Sometimes the simple approach is best. If you have one photo that you love and want to use it as a centerpiece for a room, you could have it printed onto a large canvas and display it on a wall where it will catch people’s eye as they enter the room. Alternatively, using three or four photos and framing them in basic frames that are all the same and hanging them in a row or a simple grid layout can be very effective too, particularly if the colors of the photos or frames contrast with the wall, such as black frames on a white wall or black and white photographs against a wall that is a bold color or patterned wallpaper.
Decorating your home with your photographs is a great way to add a personal touch that is unique and will remind you of great memories every time you look at it. It’s a good way to display your photographs, whether you’re a novice or professional, so you can see photos that you’re proud of.
