6 Photo Frames to Spruce Up Your Home this ChristmasDaren Kirby
Christmas is a busy time of year and with so many people coming and going, you want your home to look its best. A quick way to get your rooms dressed up for the big day is by swapping out your current photos for a selection of seasonal ones, complete with Christmas themed and inspired frames. We’ve pulled together our 6 favourite type of photo frames to get you started.
- Share the joy with a photo collage
Is there a better way to celebrate the end of the year than looking back on the happy times gone by. A photo collage allows you to showcase all those moments with a pick n mix of photo frame styles. Ideally you want to stick to the same material, but the sizes and mount sizes can vary. Once you’ve picked your frames and photos, lay them on the floor before attaching to your wall.
- A grotto of poster frames
With 3 or more poster frames, you can dramatically change the look and feel of a room. These work particularly well on a large space with single-coloured frames. Portrait works well too, creating a simplistic and elegant statement in your home. Pick your favourite photos and drape fairy lights on top for a glistening glow.
- Build-up a grid gallery
It’s scary to think how many photos we have on our phones but how many do we simply scroll past? If you have a lot of Instagram favourites, save yourself time by printing them in their square format – a perfect fit for our square frames. Create a grid of images on your wall to create a uniformed and eye-catching collage.
- Bright and merry mounts
Believe it or not, but larger mounts make your photos stand out within the frame and look more like works of art. Pick white mounts too as they’ll help the colours in your pictures really pop! Choose individual frames you can reposition around your home or go large with wall mounted frames.
- Go thin for big impact
When Christmas comes with lots of extravagance: trees, wreaths, tinsel, lights, it’s easy for things to get lost in the merriment! Delicate thin photo frames actually enhance your images inside the frame; the viewer’s eye is drawn towards the photo or artwork, rather than the frame encasing it.
- Decorate with Christmas Colours
Whether you want your home to feel like Santa’s grotto or you prefer the more subtle touches of the season, a Christmas coloured photo frame is an easy way to get you into the spirit of things. Choose red, green, white or gold frames to complement your decorations. The best thing about these frames is that you don’t have to keep them up all year, store them with your Christmas decorations box and pop a new picture in each year.
