More originality with photo canvases
A more emphasized way to display your family photos is to consider photo canvases, and believe us, the options are so many and unique that you will simply fall in love with them. The more original the approach, the more special such memories feel. Take a look at the following ideas and get inspired!
A splash of inspiration for your workplace
If you are lucky to have a home office, you can decorate this space both in a stylish and functional way. The monotonous working day would benefit to the fullest from a tiny splash of inspiration, which consists exactly of your memories. This way, you personalize the space and add individuality to it. Consider a few polaroid photos to be displayed over your working desk, be it on a wire structure or any other system that goes with your style. From a single-color scheme to a color palette rich in shades, such a collection with memories will dilute the formal work environment and bring back your memories while taking a break from work.
A whole gallery wall
Feel free to expose all your favorite memories and spread the love for your family within the interior. Pick any wall you want, over the stairs, in the dining area, right in the hallway, the living, or the bedroom. Cover the entire wall with family photos in simple frames or opt for exquisite units, such as particular materials or styles, to add individuality.
Bottle up the memories
Beautify your decor with an unusual way of displaying your family photos. Consider inserting them into recycled bottles of various shapes and decorating the interior with them, from a coffee table in the living room to a floating shelf in the kitchen. Additionally, consider tiny lights to throw new light on the old memories. One should note that such a decor idea works exceptionally well for old black and white photos, resonating with the concept of embracing the old values.
If you are looking for more original ways to dilute your monochromatic interior, consider floating photos attached to a wire or string and displayed usually on the wall. Such small but unique photos will share your memories sequence by sequence, adding a bit of charm to the moments that have passed a long time ago.
Personalized photo holders
Sometimes the real beauty consists of small details. Therefore, you don’t have to go too extra but opt for original photo holders, and the result will be no less impressive. You can always buy such units at stores of that kind or go with a DIY project. The latter promises to personalize the decor even more. From office clips, wires, stones, even pieces of pottery, your memories will be enriched with a splash of flair that is no less beneficial for the interior.
A new door frame
The best way for a decor unit to stand out is by putting it in an unusual place. Who might have thought that family photos could look this good around the door frame? Lucky you if you already knew. Either way, it is a decor idea worth giving a try. Whether you consider photo frames or chaotically display your memories, your interior will surely acquire a new point of interest.
Play with shapes and colors
You cannot even imagine how the scene changes when frames of different colors and shapes enter the play. Wooden or metallic, neutral or bright, large or small, simple or elegant; go with one particular option or consider all at once. This way, your memories will become more colorful, while the space will feel cozier, and even the coldest winter evenings will seem warm and filled with comfort.
Photo gallery on another level
Make a real accent out of your family photos by opting for a mural that replicates all your favorite memories. Although a colorful approach is appropriate, the richness of shades may be too eye-catching, while a black and white accent wall implying a wide collection of your photos is exactly what a contemporary hallway or living room lacks, which resonates with the appealing notes of love that these spaces will be instantly filled with.
