Pump Up the Drama Displaying Your Family Photos

I've been thinking a lot about family portraits since it's been almost two years since our last one. I would love to get some shots while we're in France then blow them up to display in our home to personalize it a bit. Here are some interior shots I've been taking inspiration from.

This first image is of Palmer Weiss' daughter's room featured in Lonny Magazine. I love how the portraits really pop in the white frames. 

These adorable black and white baby prints are displayed in Sara Hicks Malone's living room. 

Here are two examples of how Jen Altman displayed portraits of her little girls. They look great mixed in a gallery wall in the first photo and are equally as chic above the couch in the second photo.

This quirky family photo from Lori Andrews is a fun addition to the kitchen. 

And don't think this look only works for professional shots. This photo prominently featured in Lulu de Kwiatkowski's home (also featured in Lonny) was taken with a disposable underwater camera! I'm sure it's quite the conversation starter. 

So what do you think? Are you scanning through your photos deciding which ones would work best? I know I am.

I love the new idea's. I'm redecorating my living room now so this interested me a great deal. Thanks so much for sharing. It's amazing how a frame can change a look so drastically.

I absolutely LOVE this idea! I can't wait to do it in my new home. I just need to find a good place to be able to blow them up so they still look nice.

Great ideas... I don't know if I want any pictures blown up that big but I have some great black and whites that would look awesome!

I would totally love to do this with pics of my kids.  Thanks for the great idea.  *Going to look at pics now*  :)

Excellent idea - simple picture, really bold impact.  Great reason to scroll through the memory card.
