You’ve heard it said before: “Your home is your castle.” Indeed, it is — and the interior design elements within tend to work best when they are a reflection of your life and tastes in comfort and style.
Whether it’s designer-themed furnishings or trendy furniture designs that fill your abode, each piece represents a part of your unique style. But how can you decorate your home with a more personal touch?
Check out these ideas for decorating your home with wall photos:
Create a Special Moments Collage
Find photos that signal transformative moments in your life. Occasions such as college graduations, childbirth, getting married, or going on that trip of a lifetime all make wonderful additions for a “remembrance” photo collage. Create a memory statement with stencils or adhesive lettering such as “In these moments, time stood still.”
Building a special moments collage captures a moment in time and authenticates the memory. Families wanting to cherish their children’s milestones can build designs ideal for a family wall in the hallway or foyer. It’s not only a fun way to remember some of the most memorable times of your family’s life but can also be a great conversation starter when placed on a living room wall.
Buy a Personalized Photo Design
Do you have a furry family member you want to celebrate? Then create a whimsical photo of your pet’s paw and add its name to a personalized custom frame. Or, choose a custom design print to include with a wall design that highlights additional pictures of your pet. You’ll love the flexibility you have when choosing photo art that’s designed with everything you need to create a unique look.
Of course, there are a plethora of options to choose from, ranging from paw prints and drawings to pet photography and paintings that showcase pet themes you’ll love. Another suggestion would be a personalized photo collage of your pet’s best moments. Did he/she graduate from doggy training school? How about the first time he/she rode in a car and immediately developed a love for traveling?
Create a Story Wall
Every family has a story that includes momentous events worth remembering through photo displays. Perhaps a part of your family’s adventures was an extended vacation across the western United States. Maybe you toured Yellowstone National Park and rode the train through the Grand Canyon. Whatever the case, gather your photos of this splendid memory and decide where you want to showcase your story wall in your home.
You might arrange the photos in a timeline sequence that chronicles your travels. For a story wall that highlights a special life event such as a wedding, consider grouping your photos for a bedroom collage or hallway display. Arrange family wedding pictures to the left and right of a centralized focal point — the bride and groom — and be sure to include pictures that trace your story from dating to engagement and marriage.
Design a Heart Collage for Any Room
Whether it’s the kitchen or the living room, this creation can easily fit into any area of your home. Decide on the size of your heart-shaped collage before arranging the pictures on a flat surface. Think puzzle layout. You’ll need several pictures to create a large heart-shaped wall design. Leave enough space in the center of the heart where you can create word art with stencils or adhesive letters. Indeed, you have a lot of flexibility with this design since you’re literally creating a puzzle of pictures that you can change or add to depending on your tastes.
Keep it Fun with Photo Gallery Walls
Consider these ideas for adding photo wall art to your home. Heart collages, a special moments collage, or story walls create a special place for your family’s legacy. You’ll find pleasure in creating a space to hold these visual reminders of precious memories and will never run out of things to talk about when guests come over to visit.
