March 10, 2016

It’s easy to leave your photos living in the hard drive of yours where you eventually forget about it. We’ve compiled some ideas to inspire you to dig those memories out and do something with them to liven up your living space.

1. Display photo frames on multilevel shelves

This is a simple way to display heaps of framed photos at once. We love how you can lean the frames against the wall and against each other. The mix of sizes and orientation creates a dynamic feature.

2. Hang your photos with a bar and clip

A more delicate way to hang your developed photos on the wall. Urban Outfitters did sell a system like this but otherwise, this would be a pretty easy DIY with a trip to IKEA and bunnings. Try and find creative alternatives to the bar like the tree branch.

3. Fuck you wall

That’s basically what you’re saying by plastering the wall completely with photos/polaroids. This one is pretty self explanatory.

4. Clip your photos on a wire memo board

Install this on the wall of your workspace and create a bit of a moodboard for ultimate inspiration. This is an easy and convenient way to refresh your photos regularly.

5. Be sophisticated and actually hang your frames

This is probably the simplest and common way to decorate the wall. Mounting a gallery of different sized frames onto a blank wall. It’s sophisticated and clean but the trick is coordinating your photos and also the grid system of your frames! It might be handy to read this article on how to hang a gallery wall the right way.
