HOW YOU CAN COHESIVELY DISPLAY PHOTOS
Summer time is generally vacation time. It's time to take those photographs and create a collection of the memories of that great summer vacation or day trip.
I have great some suggestions on how to display those photographs after you have developed your favorites.
Always keep in mind that visual clutter occurs when your photographs are in different frames and scattered randomly throughout a room. When displaying your photos use a cohesive collection of frames that are similar in style and color to display your photos to their best advantage.
A large collection of photos looks best grouped tightly — no more than an inch or two apart . I recently saw a picture of 24 identical white frames that were hung on a wall over a couch in 3 rows of 8 frames each. It looked great and provided a beautiful focal point in the room.
To enhance the cohesive look of the group of photos, the frames should contain images that all follow the same theme (i.e. weddings, babies, etc.)
When hanging photographs in your space, keep in mind that your choice of frame is as personal as your choice of photo or artwork.
Create a focal point on an end table by using either all metal frames or wood frames in various sizes to create that cohesive look.
Lastly, remember that too much becomes clutter. Don't put together too large of a collection. It will detract from the attention you want to bring to the space.
So collect those memories of your summer in photographs and then take the time to display the best ones for all to see and to enjoy.
