Photo Art

I love the idea of using photos as art on the wall. I am just horrible at pictures on the wall or in frames theses days. I blame it all on digital cameras and never developing pictures like the old days. I have, or maybe I should say had, high hopes of doing a photo collage wall like the second image and also blowing up a poster type picture for the baby/guest room before baby arrives. I know there are so many other great images and ideas out there and I imagine some of you have beautiful photos walls in your own homes. Would LOVE to see what you have done or have come across!!!

    Hi Trina, I'm with you. As a fine art black & white photographer, dedicated entirely to film, it's been impossible for me to hang anything but silver prints and traditional grain (or paintings) on my walls. I'll see if I can post some here for you, otherwise head over to my site at
    Creatively yours,

    Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
    Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
    Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
    Bring out the Y-O-U!
    Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
    Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
