If your family photos are slowly piling up, here are some ideas to show them off. You're bound to be inspired by at least one idea. • Mounting your favourite photographs up the side of a staircase allows for plenty of space if you need to mount a lot of photos. Keep it simple and use a collection of like-styled frames in varied sizes, or mix it up with different frames to create an interesting collage and an eye-catching feature. • A passage or hallway that lacks interest is the perfect place for a collection of your favourite photographs. If there isn't any natural light in the space, install wall-mounted down-lights or ceiling spotlights. • Having photos block mounted means that you can mount them almost anywhere. This is a lightweight option for mounting your family photographs and you can use heavy-duty mounting tape as an alternative to picture hooks or nails. • Welcome guests to your home with a collection of photographs displayed in an entrance hall. Simple white frames and white photo mats are a wonderful way to display black and white or sepia-toned vintage photos. • Floating shelves make for an eye-catching display of family photographs and you don't have to hammer in hundreds of picture hooks or nails! You can also use floating shelves for a collection of large and small photos. Read more at www.home-dzine.co.za
