Một bức ảnh thay cho hàng ngàn từ ngữ, và khi chúng được treo trên tường nhà bạn, chúng có thể mang lại hàng triệu cảm xúc, tâm trạng khác nhau – tất cả chỉ từ một bức tranh đơn giản. Những khung ảnh gia đình nho nhỏ, một tác phẩm hand-made của riêng bạn lúc thơ ấu, một bức ảnh tâm đắc về sự kiện đặc biệt nào đó trong cuộc đời bạn…tất cả những thứ đó đều có thể đem lại cho bạn những cung bậc tâm trạng thú vị. Tuy nhiên, không phải lúc nào “lồng khung” mọi thứ cũng là một ý kiến hay.

Trong trang viết này có một số cách hay ho và dễ dàng thực hiện để bạn tự mình biến 4 bức tường xung quanh mình trở thành nơi cho những trải nghiệm mới.


Shop for art by room

It is essential to understand that every room in your home cannot have the same shades, colors and textures when it comes to photographs on walls. Just like each room has a specific task and mood, so should the pictures that hand on its walls. You could pick photographs and art that are mellow and tranquil for your bedroom and other places where you rest. Cool blues go well with office space, while bright cartoons and lively reds and yellows are great for kids’ rooms. If you have a gaming room then get some photographs framed which run on the gaming theme. The point being, your pictures must enhance and blend in with your own mood when in the room.

Chose your style and keep the theme running

It is advisable that you chose the way you want to go early and stick to it. If you want a simple minimalist and futuristic theme, then get your photographs done in black and white before you frame them. This matches well with modern living rooms that use a lot of white, black and grey. A retro-styled kitchen or bedroom could use the pictures with bright reds and vibrant greens. Contrasting does not always go well with art work on walls, so it is better to stick to a theme. Your theme could be also something creative like romantic mood with lost of scarlet, eco-friendly with plenty of nature or anything else that appeal to you.


Mix photographs with stuff that is not framed

This is a wonderful little way to highlight an old antique that is precious, a collectible that you are proud of or even just something that you would love to showcase. Surround a central piece that you feel is important with wall art and that will enhance the beauty of the room and the importance of the centerpiece. For instance, if you have a basketball signed by Jordan that you would like to showcase, a few basketball snaps around it might be cool. You get the idea… you can improvise on that.


Arrange your pictures with a central focus

With most modern homes taking different shapes and patterns, it is essential to figure out what suits best for the look of your home. Most often, one can hang pictures on the wall behind the couch, but you can change that and can also put it in long corridors. The pattern can vary from arranging in clusters, in a row or simple in an ascending and descending pattern. Sometimes the best thing can be a single large frame. It can vary with the dimensions of the room.


Proper lighting and good care

One of the most essential things when it comes to decorating with framed photographs or art work is the lighting. The perfect lighting can really bring the best out of what you have and can increase the beauty of the room immensely. Make sure the lighting is tranquil and does not create a glare in the pictures. Keep them away from sunlight and keep them clean to make sure the best out of them.


Take care of the little but important things

As silly as it might sound, pick the right hooks for your photograph as they need to support it for a long, long time. Use the right spacing and style without trying to fit too much in too little. Remember that more is not always necessarily better. If you have glass walls around your home, then hanging a few photographs on them can really accentuate the beauty and they also act as the perfect dividers for rooms. Sometimes it is the simple things that make a big difference.


Decorating with photographs is a beautiful way of giving your home a very personal and sensitive look. It says that YOU live there and that you care for the place. They not only make for personalized accessories, but often give you memories that you cherish for a lifetime!
