At IKEA, we believe that a wall of photos that capture your most cherished memories is one of the best ways to add a personal touch to your home. However, incorporating family photos and artwork into your home’s interior design can be a bit challenging, but here are some ways we think you could do it.
It’s quite easy, actually: to start with, all you need are photos you cherish, or artwork, and lots and lots of frames!
Pose for Those Portraits
Whether it’s a painted or photographed portrait, statement photos of someone you love are wonderful ways to keep them in the room even when they aren’t really there. IKEA recommends you finally book that photoshoot you have been putting off and get those posed shots to adorn your walls.
Been meaning to buy a piece of art from one of your favourite artists or even purchase a print of it online? This is the time to do it! Then, you can arrange the portraits to form your own family gallery – cool, huh?
Got photos that are gathering dust in a drawer somewhere? This is their time to shine! Decide which colours of frames you want; we have plenty here at IKEA you can choose from.
Then, layer an entire wall with them. This idea is great for if you are looking to have an accent wall in your living room or any other room in your house.
Family Fun in the Dining Area
Sometimes you’re dining alone, and sometimes you are with family and friends. Either way, a wall dedicated to photos or artwork in your dining room works wonders.
They are great conversation starters, whether it’s about your many travels and the good times you’ve had – which may otherwise be forgotten about. They’re also great to add to the mood of any event.
Do you like bright reds and blues and all colours that pop? Here is your chance to decorate with colourful frames and pictures that will contrast incredibly well against white interiors, balancing the harmony of the room.
Summer photos or even ones from special holidays are great for putting up here. It is your own showcase of memories and colour right in your living area and a treat to look at.
Make your house even warmer and welcoming by placing photos on a fireside mantel or just above it on the wall.
Black-and-white photos create an age-old aesthetic appeal, say the experts at IKEA, giving your living space a rustic ambience. Some metallic lined or sprayed frames would be a great way to make this vision come to life.
With these simple suggestions, you’ll soon be able to make your home a picturesque and warm place for every occasion.
