A Picture Perfect Home: Tips For Displaying Photos And Artwork In Your Home

Once upon a time, your parents, and your grandparents before them, printed and framed all of their precious photographs, and displayed them on cabinet tops or hung them in a row in the most visible wall in their houses. They would adorn the walls with artwork without worrying too much about the design theme or the colour of their walls. If something felt beautiful to them, they were not ashamed to display them in their home. With home interior design taking a more minimal and thematic turn, many people avoid displaying photographs or artwork thinking it would disrupt the overall interior design theme they have going on. However, picture frames and artwork that speak to you have the ability to infuse personality and warmth into any room, making your house a home.

Here are some tips for displaying photos and artwork in your home, without disrupting its theme.

 

1. Do Not Be Afraid to Show off Your Fond Memories

Your home is where you love and be loved, make memories, and share life with your precious loved ones. Therefore, it is only natural that you want to display photographs of the happiest and fondest memories you have had together, along with adorable pictures of the members of your family. In fact, if you have children, psychologists say that displaying their photos proudly in your home can help grow their self-confidence and esteem. If you are worried about clashing with your design style, there are always ways to incorporate an image display into your theme. One way is to match the frames of the pictures to your design style, whether it’s industrial, farmhouse, contemporary or traditional.

 

2. Match the Wall Colour

Displaying paintings or other similar artwork help add personality and sophistication to any home. They also add a pleasant textural variation to your design, whether they are done on wood, canvas, or watercolour paper. When you select a painting to display in your home, try to match the colour of the wall that will become its background. This does not mean going for the same prominent colour but making sure the colours do not clash too much. If you have a monochromatic black and white theme going on, there are stunning black and white photography that can enhance the minimalistic theme. A nice pop of colour in the middle of black and white can also a refreshing change.

 

3. Keep Your Single Pieces of Artwork or Photo Frames at Eye Level

If you are displaying a single artwork, always keep it at eye level. The best way to hang a solitary artwork is at your eye level and about 60 inches from the centre to the floor. This way, anyone can enjoy looking at the artwork without having to stand on tiptoes, crouching down, or looking at it at an awkward angle. If the artwork is hanging above a piece of furniture, make it about four to six inches above the piece so both of them complement each other when looking from afar. There is of course the golden rule of always centring your solitary artwork. Hanging them off-centre can feel uncomfortable to the eye.

 

4. Make the Spacing Cohesive In Gallery Walls

Gallery walls or clusters of pictures displayed together are a great way to showcase your family photos, artwork, or paintings while automatically creating a functional accent wall. They are a great way to give a quick design upgrade to a room without having to paint or add wallpaper. All you need is a hammer or some double-sided tape to create a fun piece of art. When you arrange photos in gallery walls, however, make sure you keep consistent and cohesive spacing to make the final outcome neat and aesthetically appealing. The best way is to draw a rough plan of where every photo goes on the wall on paper before you transfer them to the wall.

 

5. Match the Location

Just like in real estate, when it comes to hanging your photos and artwork, the location matters quite a lot. For example, hanging family photos in a game room would likely appear out of place, and complex modern art of a human figure in the middle of your living room would appear similarly out of place. Carefully matching the picture to the location helps keep the flow and the cohesiveness of any interior design theme, and also adds more value to the artwork or the image that you are displaying. You should also consider the lighting, mood, and overall vibe of the location when you select your wall art.
