The one thing I did know was that I wanted seamless frames. I saw it on a Pinterest pin and I loved the way it looked. Clean and simple. Your pictures really stand out. And let's face it, they are WAY cheaper than canvases. I knew Micheals had them so I went and wrote down the sizes that they had that would work for the giant wall behind my couch. And since their frames are on sale almost every week, it was very affordable.
I was lucky enough to have a roll of white paper here at the house that the girls usually draw on so I took that roll of paper and cut out the exact sizes of the frames and taped them up to the wall to arrange and see what set up we wanted to have.
We decided on 3-16"x20"s and 3-12"x 16"s. I went through the past winter's images and being that we had hardly any snow I had to go back another year beyond that. I wanted to stay current but you gotta do what ya gotta do. There are alot of guides/ images on Pinterest and some photographers websites that can give you an idea on configurations.
I have an issue with symmetry... I LOVE IT!!! My teachers tried to beat it out of me in art school but the OCD-ness in me can't help it. It calms me. I like when things match or there are two of something. Ahh.....the serenity.
When we first started thinking about this space it was fall and since I couldn't decide on the pictures soon enough it has quickly become winter and the holidays so on to the winter pictures we go.
My hubby had to help me with eye-balling where I should have the nails. But it looks so nice to finally have something up there. We plan on switching them out with the seasons. I took a ton of cool pictures last spring, summer and just this fall. I can't wait to get them all up next year.
So what do you think? Do you need any ideas on how to arrange pictures at your house? I'd love to help you out.
