My sister and I have had the “where to display family photographs”debate several times so I thought I would get my dear readers opinions. I have no problem displaying a picture of my grandmother on my bedroom dresser and for some reason my sister thinks that it’s beyond weird. So I must ask, do you display your family photos and memories through out your home or do you keep them tucked away in an album?
I know I just posted about my love/hate relationship with salon walls but when I saw this photograph of magazine editor Darcy Miller Nussbaum’s breakfast nook in Architectural Digest I was quite taken with the gallery arrangement of family photographs. What I think I really like is that the photos are hung in an area where the family probably gathers daily for meals so they can really enjoy the pictures and be surrounded by memories why making new ones. I also like that all of the black and white images are displayed in simple box frames because it’s a great juxtaposition to that stunning light fixture! This photo actually has me thinking maybe I should take the family photos out of my bedroom and arrange a cluster of them in a more neutral territory. Thoughts?
