Photographs capture memories and freeze happy moments with family and friends forever. Take a peek down memory lane with these creative ways of using the photo frames in your home décor!
Create a Gallery Wall
If you have a blank wall in your living room, a gallery wall is a great way to showcase pictures and prints that you love. Put together a collection of photographs that mean something to you, and mix and match art images or even 3D objects to make an unusual arrangement. This designer has followed a black, grey and white collection, and juxtaposed graphic prints with posters that go with the chosen theme.
Mix and Match Frame Designs
You can intersperse chunky photo frames in wood, textured bamboo, colourful cloth or simple black outlines to create a mishmash of patterns and forms that go well together. Tired of the look? Spend a bit of time and move them all around, to create an entirely different appearance.
Personalize your Work Space
There’s nothing quite as personal as a framed photo of someone you love, propped up at your desk to give you inspiration as you work. We love the eclectic collection of objects grouped together around the frame, all with a black and tan thread running through to tie them together.
Vertical Panel of Pictures
This is a lovely way to group together images that matter. Pick matching square frames with a simple black outline, and fill them with pictures that tell a story in a sequence. The irregular spacing of the strings behind the pictures adds to the drama, while the pictures themselves are placed in a perfectly symmetrical manner.
Bits of Nature, Frozen in Time
A pretty flower that’s been pressed inside the pages of a book or a leafy arrangement is all it takes to transpose you back in time to the cherished memory of an adventure camp, a childhood friend or a summer holiday. Preserve those good times forever between two panes of glass, and frame them for eternity.
Your Family Tree
Heres a lovely way to put photos of your loved ones together. Your grandparents, of course, come right at the bottom and you can add pictures of your family through generations along the branches and twigs. The branches and leaves can be inked on the wall with a stencil. The best part of this arrangement is that you can keep adding pictures every time there is an addition to the family!
Swap Out DIY Frame
This simple DIY frame uses a metal wire, or even a rope, teased into a triangular frame on the wall, with horizontal lines at marked intervals. You can keep adding prints using small paper clips, and swap them out for newer ones as you wish.
Clothes Clips and Fairy Lights
Here’s a lovely way to string up a collection of photographs using some twine and clothes clips. Twinkling fairy lights that are threaded around the pictures make a pretty picture at night. This is also a great idea for a family dinner celebrating a birthday or a festival, as you can put together photographs of similar get-togethers that you’ve had in the past.
A Staircase Gallery Wall
The wall alongside your staircase is often neglected when it comes to interior design, but here’s a stunning idea to add interest. This designer has used perfectly matched, symmetrically placed picture frames, but you could choose to be just as creative as you would like! Mix and match square, rectangular or circular frames, and intersperse vintage black and white images with coloured prints to tell the story of your family.
