When asked what you’d rescue from a burning house, most people would say their photographs. Being a treasured reminder of the good times in life, photographs are one of the most important things we own. So why not display your favourites on the wall?
Play around with different frame sizes and colours and create a feature wall for all of your favourite snaps and artwork. Try different photo finishes, such as sepia and black and white to vary the look.
I love how a polaroid-sized picture has been mounted with a large border- it really makes it stand out, giving the image a sense of importance.
These illustrations would look fantastic in my office- I may put some of my own up for inspiration.
For something a little different, there’s no rule to say pictures must hang on the wall. Try resting the frames on shelving for a contemporary look.
