The number of ideas when it comes to wall decorations is simply immense. And then the number of their variations gets multiplied, in accordance with your artistic preferences, your age and the space you live in.
But whatever lane your drive through colors and design concepts takes, you can never miss with your family photos. Straightforward people will probably opt for simple frames and ordinary photos. However, those images can be treated in so many ways to create a lot of esthetic effects on your walls.
Monochromatic shrine of ancestors
If a family decides to decorate the walls of their home with family photos, one of the walls should have photos of all the closest family members over a course of decades. It is even more moving if some of them are not alive anymore. With photos that pay respect to the deceased and elderly members of your family, you also set foundations of your current family life and teach your children how to treat their ancestors and parents.
Thematic photo collections
Family memories can be revived in many ways. Some people like making videos when they go on vacations with their family and watch the footage to remember the great time they had together. Not unlike videos, photos can also make a great collection of memories from family vacations, children’s birthdays and many other occasions. In addition, a yearly family photo portrait is also an interesting idea.
On the other side, a great mixture of visually attractive pictures and emotion-provoking content would be thematic photo walls. One wall in the hall could be reserved for photos from your sea vacations or a mixture of photos dating from different years. The other one could be reserved for school photos of your children. Many ideas can be used to make your home walls divided by certain categories.
Enriching the walls
If you want to make your home a living memory of your family and all the interesting trips and celebrations you have already had, it does not necessarily have to be only the photos. The pictures of your family members can be accompanied by other artistic works, like ingenious Banksy Canvas Art Prints for your walls, made by creative Blue Horizon Prints. Of course, you can personalize the content to suit your taste and desires. The key in combining such things is thinking out of the box and open your mind for different visual options.
Keep them stored
Old photos have to be preserved in a special way and if you do not want them to fade away or become rotten and destroyed, following the given instructions is a must. However, the modern age brings some very practical options in terms of family photos, so today you can shoot thousands of photos on your vacations and print out none of them. It would be smart to always choose the best ones as you get back home from your journey(s) and keep only the clear ones stored. Piling up too many photos on your storage devices will hide the good ones and you need those ones for your wall family albums.
All in all, photos can serve as alternatives to overrated and expensive paintings, as well as other wall decorations. They are a great way of recollecting your family members and keeping your walls in great visual shape.
