Cottrell personalized his space by including his family history and displaying his strong family ties. In the bathroom, black-and-white photographs and old postcards from Cottrell's family are displayed next to the sink. The original writing leaves you with a sense of wonder and nostalgia.
3. Old family documents. Envelopes and postcards yellowed with age can make an eye-catching wall display, especially against a dark wall. Just be sure to use color photocopies if you want to hang them without frames or in a room prone to dampness, like a kitchen or bathroom.
bath is NOT the space for precious docs! Make copies so when it curls and fades like is seen in this pic you have the peace of mind that your memories are safe, better yet choose a different room, and hang them out of the sun's reach!!
