Family photos aren't the only ones deserving of attention — a single large shot of a place you've been or an outdoor scene adds extra windows to your home.
A shelf or picture rail with a large grouping of images will become one of your favorite things to look at and can be switched around anytime without the help of a hammer.
A clothesline for photos is inexpensive, versatile (you could do this kind of display in any size space) and made for an eclectic collection of images. I love this one for its simplicity. It would also be a great idea in a child's room, where you could let her hang up her newest artwork, party invitations, magazine cutouts or whatever she wants.
A display is shared by the mantel and the hearth.
Hung flat-screen TVs are great because they improve visibility without the restrictions of a TV stand or media armoire. But let's face it: they're not that pretty. Here, surrounding the screen with a symmetrical arrangement of black-and-white photos gives the whole display a certain elegance.
Likewise, a group of framed photos and artwork behind a tabletop TV helps pretty up the view.
A group of similarly scaled photos in a tight grouping on the wall becomes a kind of collage.
I love this idea. Unframed prints inside a hung window frame create a kind of shabby chic shadow box that's very personal and also easy to update anytime.
I love this look — similar but not identical frames mean the whole thing doesn't have to come together at once. This grouping can be added to and expanded as new memories are made into prints.
In rooms with high wainscoting or tons of built-ins like this one, look up up up.
