Inspiration for Hanging Photo Arrangements

We all know the importance of photographing our families often, but what do you do once you have these great photos? How do you hang them? At the studio, we’re always looking for inspiration on photo designs in the home and recently we’ve come across too many neat ideas to not share. It’s important to think about where your images are going to hang, as well as what sort of styles you are attracted to.

Do you like symmetrical arrangements or more asymmetrical? Some spaces, like mantles and entryways, deserve large focal point images, whereas some places could easily benefit from shelving or layered photos and frames. For our sessions, we usually recommend concentrating on decorating three spaces in your home, otherwise it can get a little overwhelming. The following are some great places to start for ideas:

Domino Magazine
Always a favorite place for inspiration on design in the home.

Design Scouting
They’ve put together a great little list of ideas for hanging art.

Pottery Barn
They even have downloadable wall templates that you can plan with! Great start as a planning tool.

Make sure to check back for more ideas, because we’ll be posting more as we find them!
