Because you more than create art (you live it), here are three weekend projects to invigorate your living space, to zhoozh up your studio, or to share with clients (coupled with studio sessions, naturally).
This arrangement of square (think Instagram) images creates a delicious lineup in a modern room, a hallway, or even a kids' area. Simply drop images into to a rounded edge border, or create a collage.
Are you a free-style collector of images? This display is flexible, so change it up as often as your dÃ©cor (or mood) dictates. You might need a handyman (or woman) to securely attach standard moldings from the lumber mill to the wall, but the extra effort is worth it. Ledge Love: We recommend using frames in a curated palette for the best results (here, earth tones and metal, all with simple white or linen mats). (image credit: habituallychic.blogspot.com)
Use Polaroids (below, left) left to form a heart-shape and attach photos with poster putty to the wall or affixed to a light foam core board for a dazzling display Cupid would approve of. Be Mine: For an easier solution, try our "70 Reasons to Love Me" (below, right). Design Aglow's action-based templates create speedy layouts for canvas, framed prints or even wallpaper clings!

Have some inspiring photo displays in your own home? Why not send us some pictures for a feature here? We would love to hear from you!
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
