Picture Walls....

Like them? I love them.. I have a few.. in actual fact apart from the playroom where we have this I have one in every room of the house. My favourite is in the kitchen "Our Family Wall" probably because it is actual photos. One of the others has photos mixed in but this has more emotion for me as purely those we love.


I have a drawer filled with photos that I can swap in and out.. Every 6 months or so I just put a collection and send it to print at Officeworks then chop and change. I have to admit I haven't changed them in a while but it is so cheap to print these days I don't even care

Visitors often say oh I could never do that they would look terrible or the order would be all wrong and not line up... Ahem please notice I don't bother to line them up for that exact reason.

So.. how do I do it? Easy.. I get these..


Then I start from the middle and work out. I try and keep the distances between each frame similar and I purposely make each one a little higher or lower than the one it is next too..

No need to stop at just photos.. add in some trinkets and decorations like I do in the kids room..


 Or you do the mix and match and have prints, mirrors, photos and art all on one wall..


If you don't have the confidence to just go with the flow then pop here for some examples and template for structured layouts.. Do you have a picture wall? Come post it on our FB Page.. I would love to see it :)

  1. I simply love picture walls as well, there's something so ordered in their disorganisation.
    I have one in my bedroom, but something it keeps getting larger and larger with each month...
