Displaying family photographs-2

Continuing with ideas for displaying family photographs...

Use a photo ledge

I like the photo ledge, but I love the sofa/chair. 


 Make them part of a larger arrangement

How fresh the white and black photos look on the blue green wall. The tall tree like plant adds to the overall arrangement, however I find the photos a tad too close to the window trim.   



Print on large  canvases


 A grouping of squares always hang nicely together- much more interesting to my eye than rectangles.


Display without frames

These frameless photographs are mounted on sturdy art boards and linked by small tape hinges  to create an accordion structure. This project displays well on a mantle, bookcase etc.

Memories traditional living room

Don't these photos just beg to be handled/sorted/ looked at?  The crispness of the hurricanes and white cloths are a great juxtaposition with the untidy, "I just landed here" look of the photos.
