25. Picture shelves for displaying photos
Picture shelves are great for displaying photos. In particular, they offer the advantage of not increasing the number of holes in the walls. But they also allow you to easily change the photos of place, and to develop your compositions according to new shots.
26. Photo shelves for small spaces
Surely you knew picture shelves, but do you know photo shelves? They are equipped with a system that allows you to slide the photos between a bar and the wall, and do without a frame. Ultra light in the decoration, they slip everywhere in the house!
27. Display your photos in a color block style
To transform your photos into a work of art that catches the eye, put a color in the spotlight! In the example below, here is the ultra worked version with a rainbow composition. But you can more simply select only shots with a strong color cast, that works great too. It’s up to you to choose the color according to the type of photos you are used to taking. If you like sea photos, go for a predominantly blue photo wall for example, if you are a fan of plants and nature, green. If your photos do not have a color harmony, a composition of photos in black and white is the solution!
28. Create a strip of paint on the wall to accommodate his photos
I really like the idea of creating a strip of color on a white wall to hang pictures on. My advice here is to add a white mat in your frame. In addition to making your photos more readable, they allow you to create a nice balance by recalling the color of the wall.

30. Brass chain frames
Transparent brass frames are popular, and we understand why! With their vintage look and their pretty chain, they are perfect for highlighting small photo formats and adding an additional decorative touch to a wall.
31. Use backgroundless frames to display your photos
In the same spirit as the previous idea, I really like the principle of bottomless frames. For an assumed minimalist style, opt for a photo format that is much smaller than the frame. And if you lay them out on a chalkboard shelf, overlap them to create a graphic effect.
32. Display photos on a metal peg board
Today there is a large range of pegboards in “grid” format. White, colorful and even golden, they are very practical to display your photos using pretty clips.
33. Display your photos in old frames
Searching for old frames gives character to your photos. In wood or metal, mix different styles for an assumed flea market effect. An idea that I love, of course;)
34. Print photos on fabric
It is also possible to display your photos on the wall by having them printed on fabric. A format that changes, and which offers a nice rendering associated with a system of rods to suspend it.
35. Knowing how to arrange your paintings
Composed of ten different sized frames of the same color (choose them white, black or wood), this layout allows you to create a small gallery of a few photos mixing different places and different subjects. The second example, imagined by A Beautiful Mess, uses photos extracted from photos taken with an iPhone but you could quite use your Instagram photos for example.
Of course, you can print your photos or posters yourself to display on your walls. All you need is a printer and some good printing ink.
36. Reproductions of paintings
Do you like paintings by great painters but can’t afford the originals? So why not opt for a reproduction? A work of art like La Joconde or paintings by Vincent Van Gogh will attract attention and bring a luxurious and original touch to your wall decoration.
37. Use shelves
If you don’t want to make too many holes in your wall, you can easily arrange your framed photos on shelves. As you can see, in the photo from Home Portfolio, there are photos of works of art of different styles that have been used. Even simpler, you can also use grid frames. They allow you to have different photos in a single frame.
38. Photo frames
For a relaxed atmosphere, a colorful approach ideal for your home office or a child’s room, you can also choose to make a photo frame yourself.
39. Variety of installation
To go further, I suggest you discover some photo installations. With this type of wall decorations, you will be able to display an even greater number of photos. To do so, choose a large cardboard sheet, or cardboard that you will paint, and paste your photos on it. The effect is awesome and will dress your walls in the most beautiful way; with your memories. For more originality, you can also dress up a corner of the wall; or the frame of a door. Finally, you can also choose to place them on a metal grid for a slightly more modern and trendy decorative touch.
40. DIY and accessories
If you don’t have the budget to buy a lot of frames, I recommend displaying your photos… on a rope. With this technique, you can display your favorite photos by clipping them onto a simple rope attached to the wall. You can fix a single string or play on a repeat effect. Horizontally, vertically, in zigzag, associated with pieces of wood, fixed between two suspensions… all combinations are possible.
