Stylish Ways to Display your Images

Great DIY ideas to proudly display your images

As many of you may know, my studio is first and foremost based upon the printed work. I strongly believe that images printed are your family legacy, and when properly displayed and cared for, the products printed by a professional lab will last for generations. This cannot be said about how your grandchildren and great grandchildren will be able to access digital media.

In a constantly changing world there is one thing that has always remained available to us, and that is printed art.

I found some stylish ways to display your family portrait heirlooms and wanted to share them with you! Some are modern, some are vintage feeling, some are fun, and all of these looks can be created yourself!

A classic look for a modern space. Frame your identical sized black and white prints in simple black frames and hang in a grouping for a great look!
I love this idea using simple white matt board you can purchase at any hobby store. Mount your prints and attach a simple clip and hang across the thin metal strips on your wall space. Another great look for a modern space.
The perfect way to display a grouping of our canvas wall art! I love this look that works in any home decor!
I really am seeing a lot of art displayed like this, and I love the way the pieces overlap on the shelf. I simple shelf with a raised lip creates the perfect place to display mounted prints. Or if your lucky enough to have our prints, you know they are beautiful silk finished mounted prints when they hit your hands! Simply arrange and enjoy!
Great for a long hallway area, frame your prints in matching frames with white matt for a cohesive look to your display. The long shelf below finishes off the look nicely and raises the bar from just images hanging on the wall to a beautiful display area of your treasured family images.
Here we go back to the rod and clips idea with all matching square mounted prints grouped in three rows of three for a very stylish and clean look for your photo’s. I think this works in any home decor too!
Your images take center stage when framed in black and placed on a white wall/shelving or hutch type of area like above. And again we see them arranged in overlaps with other heirlooms included on the shelf. I think this would work just as well on a vintage wood shelf or hutch using a shabby chic white frame also!
We will call this “my dream type of work space”! I love how there is a mix of art, photographs, vintage pieces, and modern chairs all mixed together….and it still looks cool. I would love to have a space like this for my packaging area when I’m preparing my client’s products for delivery! I’m making it a goal!
Which gets us into more vintage shabby chic looks! How fun is this for some old family images? You could really mix old with new here and create something truly unique to your family. Hit some flea markets and junk shops in search of some old frames or mirrors you can take apart and paint, but don’t make them too perfect! Choose a nice thick ribbon to stretch across and hot glue to the back, grab some tiny clothespins at the craft store and get hanging. An easy DIY project for sure!
You may notice I have saved the simple DIY projects for last…so you can get excited about the weekend projects churning in your head! đŸ™‚ Anyway, here we have another pallet project I see all over, this time being used to display framed photo’s.
Lastly, I just had to include this idea. Here it is shown using old bottles with vintage images and I love it, but I can also imagine this using much newer bottles with color images too. I have many vintage bottles and old snapshots in black and white of grandparents, I think I may do this somewhere!

I found these ideas at HomeDIT

and also at Architectural Digest

I hope this gets you thinking about how to display your treasured heirlooms. Get them out of that tote and onto your walls so you can enjoy them everyday! Your grandmother would be so proud of you!
