5 Ways to Decorate Your Home with Photo Art

Personalizing your home can be so much fun! After all, it’s what makes your home uniquely yours — and nothing is more personal than photos.

So, don’t just let your photos take up storage space on your digital devices and, instead, print your favorites and place them around your home. Not sure where to start?

Here are a handful of ways to decorate your home with photo art.

1. Custom Photo Collage Wallpaper

Want to make a bold statement with your photo display? Then collect up to 200 of your favorite snapshots to create a custom photo collage wallpaper for an accent wall in your home. Not only will you select the photos, but you can also choose the layout and background color. For a cohesive look, it’s best to edit your photos beforehand, no matter if they’re all black and white, sepia-toned, or simply color corrected.

2. Travel Gallery Wall

Traveling is one of the most enjoyable activities you can do as a family. While you likely snap lots of vacation photos, they shouldn’t only be displayed on social media. Instead, create a travel gallery wall. First, choose your favorite photo from each trip before printing and framing it. Then, hang it next to others on an accent wall in your home surrounding a map. No matter how you choose to display your travel gallery wall, it’s bound to be a conversation starter when guests visit. And, who doesn’t love talking about vacations? Here’s to getting the itch to visit more and more destinations to reveal more of your map with each passing year.

3. Picture-Perfect Fireplace Mantel

The fireplace mantel is a focal point in your home, and it’s the perfect spot to display family photos or photo art that resonates with you. Print your new family photos, frame your wedding vows, display a portrait of your house, or showcase your children’s latest art piece. No matter your design aesthetic, choose to hang your photos on the wall above the fireplace or lean them on the mantel in a layered look for a more modern display.

4. Photo Calendar

You already need a calendar to organize kids’ sporting games, your doctor’s appointments, vet visits, and special occasions. Your calendar may be full, but it doesn’t need to be an eyesore in your home. Collect a favorite photo from each month in the past year to create a personalized calendar for next year. Each month, you’ll flip to a new photo of smiling faces.

5. Plush Photo Pillows

Photos don’t have to be reserved for your wall. Think outside the box and print your favorite photo(s) on a plush throw pillow instead. This would be a perfect accent to your living room sofa or cozy chair near the fireplace. Not only is it a way to display photos, but it’s useful, too.

Indeed, There are Endless Opportunities to Decorate Your Home

This is by no means an exhaustive list of ways to decorate your home with photo art. However, there are a variety of different and unique ways to display photo art in different rooms. Choose your favorite, whether it’s a collage wallpaper, travel gallery wall, a photo display on your fireplace mantel, plush pillowcase, or something entirely different. The choice is entirely yours!
