Everyone wants a home that is not only nicely decorated, but also tailored to them. The Internet is filled with blogs and websites that can inspire and teach you different ways to display your private photos.
Pinterest alone is filled to the brim with great ideas for DIY home décor – with projects ranging from large and complicated to small and for DIY beginners – but even with the handy Pinterest create-a-board feature, it can be difficult to know where to start.
To get you started, below are some of the top tips for how you can creatively display your favourite photos in your home:
An oldie, but a goldie: have your photos printed onto canvases. You can either do this yourself (although it may take you a couple of tries to get the hang of it) or get a company to make the canvases for you. Most companies will also let you stylize your photos; you can, for example, put a nice filter on them, make them black and white, or convert them into pop art.
Create your own collages of photos, which you can then either have printed as large prints to have framed or you can have them printed on canvasses (as discussed above). Luckily there are loads of collage maker programs out there, which can help you create beautiful collages of your favourite photos for free.
Pin it on a map
If you are a multinational or a well-travelled family (or maybe you just want to show off your favourite holidays) why not combine your photos with a map? Hang up a high-quality map print – whether it be of a single country, one continent or of the whole world – print a handful of photos and pin them onto the locations they were taken. You can also get some art tape, like a specific colour, tape your photos onto the map and then frame it.
If you have an affinity for the outdoors, there are plenty of ways you can incorporate nature into your home décor: you can, for example, mount a dried branch on your wall and hang some photos from it, or you can press some flowers or leaves and glue them to a photo canvas. There are plenty of guides online on how to do this. Just make sure the flowers or leaves are properly dried. There is also the option of having photos printed onto some small flowerpots and placing them in a window.
Hang from fairy lights
Fairy lights always make a room look more cosy and homely, and you can now buy fairy lights that have hooks for hanging pictures! This is a particularly nice idea for a bedroom, a reading nook or they can even add a personal touch to a home office. These fairy lights come in several sizes, so whether you want to display 5, 10 or 20 photos, all you need to do is think about what photos you want to display and the size of the space you want to hang them over.
