Sneak a Picture in Here and There

how to decorate with family photos

One of my very favorite ways to add personality to a home décor display is to throw in a picture or two -

You never know when that missing piece just might be a favorite photo – For example – A couple years ago I refinished this red hall tree – and put it in my entry way – but the bottom section remained empty for a long, long time. I just couldn’t figure out anything to go in there.

When I started painting last spring – I moved some things around and found a fun basket with some decorative balls would work perfect for the space – but I felt it was still missing something. I had my daughter’s 1 year old pictures taken in November and fell in love with one of my son kissing her cheek so I set that one on the top -

and found a white frame from IKEA laying around waiting to be used and put one of my little man in it and put it in the bottom.

I love the way the white frame pops with the red piece! This picture was the perfect finishing touch!
I love to walk in the front door and see this decorated piece and my cute kids – it really makes all the difference.

And just barely when I did my Valentine Display -

- I added pictures of my kids to that – I mean I do love them more than anything (and my hubby too) so why shouldn’t they be the focus of my “love” display!!??

So today I challenge you to take a favorite picture and set it somewhere you wouldn’t normally and see if it fills the space and if you love it like I do!
