So you've gone to the effort to plan, prepare and invest in a dream photoshoot and you've figured you'll just share the digitals and update your screensavers right?
Well, we're here to show you how you could take those images and create something really spectacular in your home, office, as a gift, or more! We've scoured Pinterest to bring you our top ways to display your prints, so read on:
Go BIG or go home!
Now if this doesn't say "I love my photos" we don't know what will! Large frames are a spectacular way to make your house feel like home and an upmarket one at that. If space is your concern with this size of print and frame, you can use it to your advantage and expand the feeling of space by using a light border and frame.
Photo Ledge Display
“The details are not the details, they make the design.” – Charles Eames.
Photo ledges are an affordable option for creating a real statement in your home and allowing you to incorporate more of your personal touch. Add other pieces of decor and texture to pull your photo ledge display together and create a beautiful nook out of an otherwise bare or unused wall.
Go the whole hog
Custom wallpaper was once reserved for the few, but nowadays it's a much more accessible option for the everyday homeowner. Imagine your favourite image, landscape shot, or memory being your statement wall. It's certainly unique and not something that everyone else has!
If you're often in awe of hotel spaces and restaurant interiors, you'll often dial in on their unique approaches to displaying prints and artwork. This is something you can bring into your home or workspace cost-effectively with high-end results.
Add some WOW factor
If you really want to give your print the full works and display it in all its glory, then adding lighting will really give you that wow factor. This doesn't have to be an expensive addition either, we found Ikea's ÅRSTID LED picture lighting for just £32.
There are plenty more affordable and high-end options out there of course. Many lights are battery-powered and provided with their own adhesive, so there is no need to call your electrician and add expense. You can use your lighting to add mood and emphasis or brighten a space, there are so many options.
If you're a craft lover, you'll no doubt jump at the opportunity to create your own unique display. There are endless options and inspirations out there. We really liked this hanging ribbon idea for a quick and easy project, that gives you the chance to interchange your prints and ribbon colours to suit your mood or seasonal decor. It is especially good for those who prefer a framed alternative or something more renter-friendly.
“Luxury, to me, is not about buying expensive things; it’s about living in a way where you appreciate things.” – Oscar de la Renta.
Of course, we couldn't forget the classic collage! All your favourite shots in one stunning statement, ahh it's music to our ears.
You can also tie in other prints with varying textures, quotes and similar colour schemes to create a collection that really compliments you and your space.
"Your home is an extension of you and you shouldn't be afraid to make it something you love and to your own taste."
We can't lie, these acrylic frames by Highland Hardware on Etsy really caught our attention. It is such a versatile option for many different interior styles, whether your space is bright and airy or dark and industrial. These frames really do bring a clean and modern mood to your space.
“We shape our homes and then our homes shape us.” – Winston Churchill.
We absolutely adore a black and white print, it adds such an artistic and high-end finish to any photograph. Combining a selection of black and white prints can be a great way to bring together all your favourite photos and it doesn't matter if you're mixing new photos with old as the colour scheme ties them together.
This type of display is fantastic for a reading corner, downstairs loo, or guest room. There's a quiet and peacefulness to black and white print that really helps them elevate a space.
