Photos are a wonderful way to decorate your walls, whether you are into Richard Misrach, Ansel Adams, Margaret Bourke-White, humorous old photographs found at flea markets or displaying the very best shots you took of your vacation or children. There are endless ways to set and arrange them.
One large-scale photograph. This striking landscape overlooks the walls; the skies, clouds, and top of the tree create a strong effect on the color scheme and disposition of the space.
A triptych. If you are a fan of architecture, a triptych of the three favorite buildings makes for an incredibly pleasing wall. Sizes and the frames of this trio makes them more cohesive.
Using architectural graphics from your favorite city is a great way to tie the subject matter jointly.
Here each individual picture in the triptych features one person.
A well-composed wall of smaller photographs. Sticking to black and white and utilizing fitting mats and frames ties together the group, regardless of subject matter.
The makeup here alternates vertical and horizontal orientation. The artwork pops against the paint.

Use a picture railing. This shallow shelf retains photographs lined up perfectly along the floor, while heights vary.

Prop it on the counter. Placing a photo on the counter tops and leaning it against the wall adds style to a minimalist kitchen.
Extend the eye up from the headboard: This very low mattress had something to navigate all of that white space between it and the ceiling. By centering this photograph overhead, a point is created.
Give the essay from rhythm. This room has rhythm from audio, from the timber grain, and from the sculptural acoustic . The arrangement of the photographs on the wall includes a rhythm too.

Split the glass block. A big expanse of glass block can be an institutional-looking snooze. Why not break it up ?
Amy Lau Design
Produce a view. Lacking a window over your desk? Think about a large landscape photograph. The width of this work is around the same as that of their desk’s, making the proportions pleasing.
