Photo Wall Crazy


Amazing display of photo's from Coastal Living.  A photo wall has been on my list for years.  I am getting really inspired to start compiling my pictures to do something like this.  I really like how all the frames are different yet have a commonality in color. This bedroom looks so fantastic in all its black and white glory.  I would love for my home to have this kind of feel...crisp and clean.  I just don't think this color scheme is realistic for me.  Ceiling height in this room also helps in the display. We live in a 40's colonial and ceilings are lower than average.

This is great!  It is photo wall paper!!!!  This is definitely for me!  Thinking of arranging and hanging all the frames can be overwhelming.  So, this is definitely for the "photo wall challenged".

Cool huh?  You can just stick your photo's inside the frame or leave as is.  No nails...no holes.  I have old plaster walls that are impossible to hang things on or make a mistake for that matter...which I often do!

The photo wall paper is by designer Lisa Bengtsson.  Check out, Bunny Maxwell an online store that carries her line, otherwise hard to find. (info from coolphotoideas.com)


More inspiration!

Great idea to go frameless...

I am going to start gathering my photo's.  Now, if I can just get this done... Have fun!

Beautiful inspiration pictures! I am in the thinking about it stage for a photo gallery in my dining room. First step would be collecting frames.....

I really love photo walls. I have plans to have one in our house someday...of course I've already started collecting the antique picture frames! The theme of them is all carved wood frames - now to just find a wall to put them all!

Absolutely beautiful pictures. Our entire center hallway is filled with pictures in black frames. My daughter walks up and down daily and comments on all her people. I just love to have pictures of loved ones around me. Good luck with your wall.

LOVE the photo walls. Have a space "carved out" for where I want to put mine! The challenge: getting it to look as fabulous as many of the examples you've shown!

Those are cool. I just posted (today) about my bird prints which cover a small wall/corner.

I recently started my photo wall and went frameless. The frame are relatively cheap at craft supply store (especially when you have a coupon). I grouped different sizes, black and white and color photos, but all with white mats. People love coming over and seeing what is new.
