5 Creative Ways to Display Your Family Photos

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

Photography is so visual, yet in the past apart from the odd chosen few, our family photos would be stored away in a photo album only coming out on special occasions, or when you parents felt like embarrassing you with your baby photos.  Family photos are so precious and are ever more being displayed as art work throughout our homes.  We are forever finding creative ways to display our prized collection of memories. 1. Pallet Pose Who would have thought a few years ago that the once lowly thought of pallet would become one of the most versatile home decor favourites.  Whether it is a shelf or a frame a pallet makes a beautiful rustic backdrop for your photos.

Ladder Look Wooden ladders provide a great setting for displaying your family photos.  One way would be to use photos of the different generations of your family tree as you go up the ladder.

Clip Pics Clip Boards are great for displaying photos, they also make it easy to change your display.  You can find different styles of clipboards to suit your rooms style and colour scheme but in true Eat Sleep Live fashion, we have gone for a more rustic selection.

String Scene There is nothing as simple as using a piece of string to hang something from a wall.  With a ball of string, a few pegs and a flash of imagination you can create a bespoke display for your most personal photos.

Decorative Display The days of uniformed wall displays are gone, now we are venturing into a mish mash of shapes, sizes and styles to create a display that is so wrong, it's right!  Decorative displays combine photos, art and wall art.
