Decorating with Photos

One of my main hobbies is photography. I love taking pictures of anything and everything. What I love even more, is decorating with photos. Pictures are snapshots of memories and they should be displayed to us so that when we see them we can remember a special time in our life. They can also inspire. Photos of architecture and travel, or even just abstract photography can make an ordinary thing extraordinary. I love decorating with photos, and you don't have to be a photographer to get creative with it either.

Photo collages are a fantastic way to display pictures! They can turn an ordinary space into an art gallery and its not hard to do...

Start by choosing pictures that mean something to you. It could be photos of family, friends, pets, or just of places or objects that you love. Next, use some paper to tape on your wall in an arrangement that you like. This will help you see what your collage will look like as well as let you make adjustments and change your mind without making dozens of holes in your wall. Once you have a great arrangement for your pictures, decide which photo will go where, then find frames that fit the sizes. Frame and hang!

You can even let your photo collage spill over onto a table or desk

You don't even have to frame photos... look how great these empty frames look! Or maybe try a mix of framed photos and empty frames. Or add some mirrors! You really cant go wrong.
