The Perfect Picture Display

Your home isn’t just a reflection of your taste; it’s a reflection of your life. Photo walls are a great way to showcase your memories, while also displaying what makes you unique.  There is no limit to what you can do with a photo wall.  You can make it simple, elegant, modern, rustic, traditional, eclectic, or any mix of the above.  It all depends on your creativity!

Picture walls are a great decorating idea for hallways, stairwells, and even small walls. While picture displays do take some strategic planning as far as placement and frame choice, once done, a photo wall can be the perfect addition to your space.

The frames you choose will naturally control which pictures catch the eye first. Don’t be afraid to use different textures, but the frame colors should all compliment the room. Different frame sizes effortlessly add depth to the display and draw attention to certain photos.

Take a moment to strategize. Tape off space on the floor the same size as your wall, and try out different arrangements.

Don’t be afraid to be different. Throw in some sentimental pieces in your frames, such as the letter your mother wrote you on your wedding day or ancient black and white family photos.

Try the eclectic (but rapidly growing in popularity) corner arrangement.

Try a different way of hanging photos: use string, rope, clothespins, drawer pulls, whatever you can think of!

Make a shelf display.

Finally, after you’ve laid out frames and you know the arrangement that works best for you and your space, start from the middle of the wall and work out.  This will make your life much, much easier!

Great post Lynn! Love a picture wall whether it be for family photos or artwork!

    Thanks Donna! I know, it's such a great idea for a space, it makes so much more of a statement than using only one or two photos or pieces of art.
