Photographs are physical forms of memories and I love having them around. Ever since I was a child, I loved clicking photos. Now, when I was a child, my mother used to display the photos in her own style. However, as I shift to my new house I want to display my photos in different ways.
I have spent the last few days browsing through magazines and here are a few interesting ideas that have caught my eye.
Clip Photos on a Clothesline
Yes, you read that right. Create a ‘clothesline’ across a wall. You can make the clothesline out of twine, wire, etc. The materials may depend on the theme of the room. Take print outs of the photographs and use wooden clothespins to attach them to the wire or twine. This is a new and creative way of displaying photos. You can hang the photos straight or at angles. You can also hang them with metal clips. This is an easy, pretty yet different way of displaying photographs.
Let your Coffee Table Tell Stories
This is a way in which a boring coffee table can be made interesting and also a very unique way in which photographs can be displayed. Place your photographs under the removable glass cover of the table. This will also pose as entertainment for guests, family and friends. You can place the photos neatly under the see-through table top or you can also give the photos the effect of a collage. You can also keep newspaper snippets, that you find interesting, along with the photos.
Create a Photo Wall and Let the Wall Speak
Photo frames are still well accepted in the market. Buy simple photo frames online or from gift stores and frame your photos, like the good old days. Bind photos in frames of various shapes and sizes; choose one wall in a room and hang these frames on that wall in a particular design or pattern. This way you can have all your photos in one place instead of having them scattered all around the house.
These ideas seem very interesting to me and I think I will choose one of them or all of them to display my photographs. I can use one idea for each room in my flat. I can use the coffee table idea for the living room, the clothesline idea for the bedroom and the photo wall idea for the dining space.
