Let me tell you, there is nothing that winds up a parent more than someone else's talking about his or her children, especially if you are discussing how much the children's images should be displayed throughout the home. As with all aspects of design, there is no right or wrong way; there are only suggestions, style tips and advice. You take from it what works for you and discard the rest. I confess that I am firmly in the less-is-more category when it comes to photos and where and how they should be displayed. How to Manage a Growing CollectionCollections of framed family photos typically happen over time. You buy a few cute frames here and there; someone gives you an extra-sparkly one as a present; your kids make one out of Popsicle sticks; your relatives send you random framed photos etc. Adding to the challenge is the fact that very few of the photos are ever the same size, format or even from the same time period ... visual chaos quickly ensues. A shelf full of mismatched frames can look as much like clutter as actual clutter does. Unifying the frames and photos creates design harmony and a sense of order that makes a huge difference in the way a room feels. In this room the family photos are in different-colored frames, and the photos are different sizes, but they are artfully unified by their uniquely loose grid-like placement as well as the shape and style of the frames.
