My favorite feature of our house is our large L-shaped living room. Two walls are covered with windows large windows the rest are adorned with photos. Photos are the *only* decoration on our walls, in fact. You might say I’m a bit obsessed. I just finished up our third (and main) photowall this weekend and am so excited to have photos to share with you. Without further ado:
3 Photowall Ideas
1. Hang unframed mounted photos on the wall with 3M Command Strips.
Don’t be afraid to Go Big with your photos. The 8×10’s of our childhood are neither “standard” nor large photos these days! Large photos make a bigger impact.
To give you a bit of perspective on size, look at Tilly standing next to our photowall:
Here is a close-up of the photos so you can see how they look on the styrene. I like clean, uncluttered lines which is why I chose to hang unframed photos on my wall. This images are mounted for durability and are coated with UV protection.
2. Buy 12×12 frames for an eye-catching photowall.
This photowall was designed to be fun! No formal portraits allowed here. I wanted somewhere to display some silly photos that I loved. The 12×12 frames allow me to easily and inexpensively switch out these photos. The photos that come off the wall go directly into our family scrapbooks.
3. Hang favorite photos on a string, attached with small office clips.
I was inspired to start this photowall after attending a local photography conference where we each brought an image for the photo salon. I decided to have my own photo salon and enjoy some of my favorite photos.
I hope you are inspired to hang some of your own photos up on the wall. If you have a photo, feel free to post a link in the comments. I’d love to take a look!
