Today’s AAA is for Lorna, who writes the lovely blog, Lorna Rachel. She wants to find different ways of displaying her Instagram photos. There are lots of DIY and crafty ways of displaying your IG shots, but Lorna wants something a bit smarter and more sophisticated; something with a bit more longevity. Here is what I have found…
1. Huge frame
I really love this idea. I used to make collages of my favourite photographs, which always grabbed lots of attention and encouraged lots of reminiscing. However, they don’t necessarily look particularly sophisticated. Having said that, the option below, with it’s clean lines and simple frame, looks brilliant.
2. Collection of individual frames
You can buy relatively cheap frames and mattes like the ones below. Add your Instagram shots and hang a few together and it very quickly becomes a design statement, with relatively little effort.
3. Enlarge prints
By enlarging your photos, when you get them printed, they become more like pieces of art. This display looks beautiful.
Choose a theme or a colour and frame similar Instagram shots together. You could even choose twelve photos to represent a year in your life.
I know that photo calendars can be really cheesy but I think this one, which you could make really easily, would be a lovely thing to hang in your home – not tacky at all!
Do you ever print out your photos or is it something you never get round to? I hope some of these ideas help, Lorna. I feel inspired to get some photos printed!
Don’t forget, if you have a design dilemma or interiors related question or problem, give me a shout and I will try to help you solve it. Either post the question on my facebook page, email me email@example.com or leave a comment below.
