Ways to Display Pictures

I am joining Kelly @ Kelly's Korner for her series Show Us Your Life, and today we are showing how we display pictures.

I love pictures in pretty frames and have them all over the house. I am always on the look out for unusual frames, they add interest to any picture and your decor.   Cute little bunnies in a gilded frame can go just about anywhere and make a fabulous statement.

Of course the bedroom dresser is a favorite place to display several pictures of family.  Finding frames that go with the rest of the rooms decor helps to enhance the overall color scheme and table top vignette.

A little cutie grandson in a pretty frame and displayed on an easel looks pretty on an end table.  Just this one picture creates a huge statement on this table.

Another end table with more family.  I love to mix up the sizes, styles and shapes of the frames.

Even tucking a tiny little ornate frame into a vignette can be fun.

This frame and vase have the same colors and creates a really cohesive display together.  One piece just helps to emphasise the other.

Various frames and sizes can create a unique kind of vignette, something different than flowers or candles.

An antique silver frame with some cute little sheep works with this vignette.

A picture of a horse ties in with the equestrian display on the bookcase. and down below the picture of hunting dogs continues the theme.

I love cows, so a painting and a figurine compliment each other.

There are tons of ways to hang pictures on the wall, and great ways to display them on your tables too.

So, how do you display yours?
