Let's play a little game. Here are some framed photograph arrangements. Browse through them and pay attention to what you notice, what you like, and what you don't like:
Here are some questions about photograph arrangements that you might want to consider:
-Do you prefer black and white photos? Is color more your preference?
-Do you like to use the same frames?
-Do you prefer similar frames but somewhat different to add interest?
-Do you like a grid symmetrical arrangement?
-Do you prefer a more hapazard free form approach?
-Do you want to make a statement by filling up a whole wall?
-Do you prefer a small statement?
-Do you want to have the same mats on all of your frames?
-Do you prefer mat size varied from picture to picture to add interest?
-What kinds of frames do you like? Black? White? Gold? Silver? Wood? Metal?
Here are some of our attempts at hanging and dispalying photograph arrangements:
Last month's family black and white family photograph collection in white frames (some wood, some metal) in our living room:
Our family of 4 framed baby photos (me- the mom when I was a baby, my husband's baby picture, our son, and our daughter) hanging in our daughter's old bedroom back in Virginia:
Here we were having a little fun in the bathroom with bath tub shots of our kids (in our old house in Virginia):
You can tell we favor black and white photographs in simple black frames (from our old house in Virginia):
Our old bedroom in Virginia, you guessed it, more black and white family photos:
Here we also had some fun with a big black and white of my cat, Millie, on my side of the bed, and Steve's dog, Raven, on his side of the bed (old Virginia house):
Do you currently have any framed photograph arrangements in your home? What is your style? Were you inspired by any of the pictures in this collection? I'd love to hear from you.
Happy decorating & living,
