We are all trying to find ways to decorate our homes on a budget and we all have family photos that we love to see. Using these pictures use to be a no-no in decorating,but now more and more designers are using them to add personality to a room or a vignette.
While browsing through 3 of my designer books - Charles Faudree's Details - Traditional Home Signature Style - Christi Carter's Art of Accessorizing , I found tons of examples of how to use them regardless of your style.
You can find frames almost anywhere, at GW the DT, thrift stores and yard sales. With a little paint, distressing, matting and imagination you can create beautiful wall and table displays. Pay close attention to the frames and how varied they are.
Notice the wire picture holder in the planted urn.
Not framed, just filling a bowl.
One single picture in the basket.
Copying pictures in black and white and then cutting mats to fit the various frames creates a stunning wall.
Unframed and on a door.
I chose a frame that fits the style of my LR and then displayed it on an easel for this vignette.
Ancestors in old antique frames on the bedroom wall.
Also, I showed you how I use one on the backside of an arrangement on the coffee table.
So, do you use family photos in your decor and did you see anything that you might try?
