Your home is a reflection of you, so it is important to include personal items such as photos, in your decor. You may be and decorate your home with photos of your family, friends and special memories. These usually constitute very personal decorations that can be displayed throughout the house. They make your home feel cozier and they give it character. But what could you do with them?
If you have a portrait you’d like to use as a focal point, it’s important to consider placement as well as the framing of the piece and the materials, colors, and textures that surround it.
In the dining room or in any other room for that matter, you can print your photos using special effects such as sepia if you wish to maintain the same color palette. The photos would also look vintage this way and they would blend in more easily.
The staircase is a classical area for displaying family photos. That’s because it’s a space where you can’t use many other types of decorations. A large collection of family photos would look beautiful if you use the same type of frames but with different sizes.
Some photos could really change the look of a hallway. In such a narrow space, there’s not much you can do to make the décor stand out. But photos take little space and the best part is that you can hang them anywhere you want.
Picture frames of the same size and shape could be used to create an original and stylish décor. If you use rectangular photo frames you can alternate horizontal and vertical positions. It’s an interesting way of adding a modern touch to a rather traditional method.
