We all love taking photos, but besides posting our favourites on Instagram, how many of us think about other creative ways to display photos?
Photos are treasured memories that we want to capture and re-live time and time again. Printing digital photos and incorporating them into the interior design of your home is an easy way to bring warmth to your space.
Here are four creative ways to display photos in your home.
1) Photo Books
If a photo is worth a thousand words, then a collection of photos is a novel. What better way to tell the story of your photos than through a photobook? These make great coffee table and beside options, so you and your guests can browse through some of your favourite memories more often.
Oliphan’s premium range of photobooks makes it easier than ever to create your own photobook. Simply upload them on their online editor, order your book and they deliver it straight to your door. With prices starting from $29 and with Flush Mount, Layflat, hardcover and softcover options to choose from, if you’re anything like us, soon you’ll have made an entire photo library.
2) Wall Collage
Whether it’s your wedding photo or baby’s first birthday, there are certain snaps that you’ll want to frame and display for all to see. However, think about interesting ways to display photos on your walls. A wall collage is one of our favourites. Using several photos and mixing up the size and composition of the frames can add visual interest to a space.
3) On Shelves
Other ways to display photos in your home include putting them on shelves. This technique works well with multiple small-sized photos and is a great use of limited linear space. Have a bit more space to play with? Use a bookshelf, but hold the books and place the frames instead.
Have limited wall space? Hanging your photos like bunting is an easy way to utilise air space and add some fun to your rooms. Hang them off desks, bookshelves, wire frames or the moulding of fireplaces – they work anywhere you want to put them.
