Don’t leave your photos in a closet (or on a disc) after your session is over. Use some of these inspirational ideas to showcase your photos in your home.
When it comes to displaying photographs and creating wall galleries, I love Room & Board’s simple and clean design ideas. Check out some of their display recommendations past and present. Their advice for picture-perfect displays: “Mounted picture ledges let you lean photo frames and books casually against the wall, while rails provide extra room for adding accent pieces into your display. You don’t need extensive wall space in order to showcase your collections. Blend frames of varying sizes and shapes on a single shelf to lend depth and perspective to an art or photo collection. Let the frames overlap for an organic, mix-and-match look.”
You can also unify your display by using frames of the same color. Have old frames laying around? Try spray painting them BLACK! It really works! Black spray paint is one of my cure alls when it comes to turning things sleek, unified and more modern.
So what about getting all of the frames to line up..or how do you know which display you want? Check out The Perfect Picture Wall they can help! They sell a set of ten picture frames that let you easily create this look with a variety of different configurations of frames. The kit comes with a template that lets you line up everything perfectly before you start hammering away. Kits are available in a variety of finishes and sell for $349.
